HAHAHAHA Jonathan...you're such a real stinker! But we love ya! I'm back! Took a week long hiatus to Kansas City to celebrate a late Christmas with my folks.

Got a great Christmas present from my hubby...a dump bed cart for behind the tractor! I was sooooo excited! I told Diana that there's not many women out there who can get a crap haulin', turd dumpin' wagon to pull behind the tractor and be excited but I was tickled! No more wheelbarrowing stall mess. Awwwww!

So, aren't you about to be thrown into the throngs of DUHH-dum here anyday?????

The leg is 100% (80% without the age allowance), thanks for asking.


We opened up the foaling barn last night, so Jon is manning his post for the next 6 mos. I think our latest count is 141, which is pretty much in line with last year. There have been a few changes to the barn and people in the last year, but the essence of it all is still there.

There will be more noticable changes in the future with regards to numbers of horses and job assignments, but this year still looks pretty busy on the front end.


BTW: which one am I

HA! I never really gave it much thought, Tim! I wasn't implying that one of you is evil...just that you go together like peas and carrots! Peanut Butter and Jelly! And the 2 guys who had the white tigers until one of them got eaten....LOL It's nice to have you BOTH back here....we can use all the help when can get!

Tim is evil! The worst boss anyone ever had!!!! Mean, unappreciable, and those are his good points!

One note on the Tiger pair reference. We aren't that close!

I think we'll stick with Jekyll and Hyde for now.

Plus, I don't think our "Musical Magical Foaling Show" is Vegas Strip material. (Roll THAT mental picture around in your heads for awhile why don't ya)

I also remember why I chose the "Flies & Poop" analogy!

You may be wrong there Tim. I've pondered over that particular vision and I DO believe that the two of you could fair quite well in Vegas as a sideshow. Perhaps in a future life when NONE of us can afford these crazy creatures any longer. HA!

You and Jonathan missed my astute thought about palpating a mare...similar to the ole "Rocky & Bullwinkle" skit of reaching into a hat and pulling out a rabbit...."ROAR!"...whoops, maybe I should get another hat. Its been enjoyable watching everyone debating the "is my mare pregnant or not". I believe Holly was almost ready to obsessively borrow her vet's US and drive to my house to end the debate, which, by the way, is still lingering. However, Diana and I secretly are pretty sure I'm going to get a surprise baby sometime between March & April.

Hey Emily! I haven't been on here in awhile either. Have been dealing with some crisis and issues...not been in the mood much to talk (AND that would be a real shocker for me...hahaha).

Nice to see you. I hope everyone else has been doing well...in the process of trying to get caught up with the news.

Blossom blew out her sole of her foot we treated so long and hard for laminitis. I'm just speechless right now and not sure what direction I'm going to take.

Thanks Emily. I'm just sick at this point. Its so disappointing to fight the good fight and to have a set back like this happen. I'm so emotional about it right now that I've opted not to make any decisions yet about what I'm going to do going forward. All I can do is just rub her and look into those soft baby brown eyes of hers and tell her what a remarkeable individual she is. Who would ever think something as "easy and routine" as weaning would leave such a deep mark on your horse's health. In all my years of dropping babies on the ground, I guess I've just been lucky and not lost a mare this late in the game due to a pregnancy situation.

But, the good news is that its nice to see you on here Emily! I've missed ya!

Thanks guys...that's why I just love you all so much for your friendships! I did just get some good news though...(I can tell when things are better because my veterinarian gets rather funny sarcastic instead of a somber thing when I know things are not looking good.)

It would appear that the xrays are looking good...perhaps Blossom has dodged another bullet. The bones are all in place and no rotation has taken place. We're going with the initial inflammation and infection caused by mastitis then laminitis has perhaps caused an abcess as well in the hoof and its just taken all this time for it to finally blow out (since August...can you all believe that?!?!?!) We are going to pack the big (and I do mean BIG hole in the sole of her foot) with gauze soaked in epsom salt poultic...just to pull out anything remaining...and wrap her foot in duct tape. We discussed an easy boot but because of the snow, ice and watering method (ponds) there are concerns that she will pull the boot off in the mud or even get moisture in it that sits and perhaps causes a secondary infection to set in.

He even gave me the "all ok" to breed her in March...pffttt...go figure that out.

My biggest baffle in all of this is that she has not had a bout with any lameness whatsoever since our last bout months ago...even now with a big hole in her foot. Vet says she probably feels alot better though. Good thing its cold outside...summer heat could have played another nasty role in this...

maybe I should go out and buy some lottery tickets...luck just seems to keep showing up on my side here. Wish it would pay the vet bills though. Hehehehe.

Bobbi, you always have so much "spirit" in you, it is hard to hear you are not feeling well. I am glad Bolssom foot is looking better and please tell us if we can help you in any way. Hugs!!!!!!!!!

Bobbi, so sorry you are still battling lameness issues with Blossom.
On the other hand, I was wowed by how well your gelding healed. Aren't they amazing? Of course, you had something to do with it too!

Jonathan, sounds like we're all beginning to roll!

I have a broadmare assigned to me by the college, so I'll be doing foal watch soon. She is due late Feb. to mid-March, but was pasture bred, so that is estimates. I'm sure going to use calcium strip tests and I'm thinking temperature too.

I now have two open broodmares. I'm getting them both AI'd within the next month or so. I just made a partial trade of my little guy, Poco,for this second broodmare. Nice mare, but sniff, I'll miss my baby boy. He has an excellent home though, at the University that bred him.

I found out that one of my mare's four year old colts just sold for $10,000. That is with training, but I'm breeding her back to the same stallion, Heart Of A Fox. Don't know who I'm breeding the other mare to.

Well, May Our 2009 Foaling Season Bring Nothing But The Best, For Our Mares, Their Foals And Their DUHH Inflicted Owners/Managers. Eh?

Is there no thread for this year's mare watching? I'm in the middle of DUHH and see no one out there in the same situation! What happened to all the mare watching?
