Skip to comments.The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread FIVE
Posted on 03/21/2005 7:18:04 PM PST by HairOfTheDog
This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.
I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts look for it there and wake the thread up!
I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in . There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news . Legislation that might affect horse owners.
So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.

New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
And thanks for the hugs. I'm being a BIGGER wimp than Markie. (hehehe)
As one mother to another...I don't think you're being a wimp:)
I asked my questions as a mom, to know where what level to set the worry meter on:)
I'll be glad when she is there too, and then when she is back home, and in between I want to know that she is in the house by dark with the doors locked:)
My daughter is 25, and when her husband works nights I still talk to her everynight to know that her doors are locked.
This flight tracker is a LOT better. Gives a little map of where she is and lots of other information, and it updates every minute by itself. You can just leave it open.
She's Southwest flight 502 if you want to check out the tracker - the second link is the cool one.
I have to go get in the shower :~D
We've got beautiful clear skies here today. She should get a ~great~ view of the mountains as comes in to Seattle. Do you know if she got a window seat?
I'll be praying and worrying until I hear she's there. Someone post as soon as she arrives okay?
How's Rusty this morning?
Did Rusty eat?
No, he hasn't ate yet.
I'm going to give him some Maalox.
Hair do you remember when I did that before how much I gave him? You said you were going to make a note of how much to give a horse...funny I can remember that but not the dosage:)
I don't remember... sorry. I guess I didn't make my note.
Give him plenty I'd think.
Now to answer posts.
LOL about your mommily worry meter! Heh, Markie's gonna be surprized to see so many worry warts. Gotta love it!
You can watch the Aeroseek page and post when she lands.
She's Southwest Airlines Flight 502.
We're ready to go here, she's over Montana, it's a gorgeous sunny day here and she'll have a great view. We will post as soon as we get home!
If she peeks out on the landing approach, I'm sure it'll take her breath away!!!
Prayers are ALWAYS appreciated! Hmmmm, I don't feel quite as worried as before. Must be YOU and everyone ELSE sharing the worrying dept. with me. PHEW!!!!
COOOOOL, that flight tracker shows Montana having a Malta town. That's OUR town here.
What's wrong with Rusty?
He just stopped eating. He has done this 2 other times this past year. Will go 3-4 days and not eat, then suddenly start again. No other symtoms other then being a little quieter then he usually is.
Finally, it sank in my head.....listen first...THEN see if I should freak out. LOL!
53 mins till touchdown!
