COLIC SCARE!!! We had one of the boarder horses come in acting really funny last night. A very large ex race horse that didn't wnt to eat!! That's always a sign of trouble. He came in fine just didn't dive into his feed like a big horses should. We watched him for awhile and he was lying down and getting up and pawing the floor.  We then took his grain away and gave him a shot of banamine. We called the vet but ended up not needing them  It was a long night going out to the barn every hour or so to see what was going on. First check he was laying down, second check he was up but no poop in the stall, third check he was up and eating hay, forth check...yup still dark outside.... finally a pile of poop. Never thought I'd be doing a happy dance for finding poop, but that is just what happened.  It was good. Horse people are definetly different from others. We like the smell of worn leather, horse hide and manure, it's as good as any scented candle and just as relaxing.

    Hi,
    Thanks for visiting our website. My name is Mary Loch and I have had horses in my life for 33 years now. I have had the great pleasure of meeting many horse people from a huge variety of horse back grounds. From the first time horse rider to the highly skilled horse trainer. I have learned one thing from all of them. We all love our horses and the presence of horses in our lives. We all started with the love of the horse. Then some of us moved on to where we want to be, or hope to be, constantly changing directions, as we see new paths that we can challenge ourselves with. New obstacles  that we can try with our horse companions,  I hope this blog of ours touches you with some great horse stories and experiences and lets you become a part of our STABLE LIFE.
