Find a saddle I can use until mine arrives?


Use it?

How about no.




The saddle is a very kind offer from the people who allow me to agist on their property. However, it is also the saddle of their breaker who has just returned home, so I am trying very hard to stay out of their way and not use it when they need it.

We tend to run on similar horse-work schedules, so this has been tricky.




Lame horse.



Please. Just… please.


It’s getting to the point where I feel like people are starting to question my sanity or if I am just making all this crap up.

Who has luck like this?



Me. All day. Every day.


This horse was in work for 4 weeks with no issues.

He’s been home with me for 2 weeks and I have had a saddle not arrive, a colic and a lameness.

You’d think I have Munchausen syndrome by proxy.

I’m starting to think I have MSBP.




It’s only minor, but like come on.

Someone just come put me out of my misery please.

I pulled out the hoof testers and got nothing, so I gave him the bute I had saved from the colic incident and he will get today off (which was scheduled anyway).

Fingers crossed for improvement, because the B-car ain’t a fan of bute.

Worm/medicate this horse, and the outcome is always the same.

Food tantrum.

      1. Ah yes! That is a problem with Biasini when I try to give him electrolyte paste He holds it in his mouth and will not eat for up to half an hour and then I give up and syringe water into his mouth. But he will take electrolyte powder in his feed.Horses can be such characters. Thanks for commenting.

  1. Who has luck like this? Me, so I can vouch for your un-insaneness (however, it’s likely I’m actually insane so take that how you will). The thought of purchasing a remote island and dropping P off there has crossed my mind more than once, and I can make room for B (insert evil cackle here). Hope the bute + rest does the trick!
