The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread FIVE
See our who's who page! ^

Posted on 03/21/2005 7:18:04 PM PST by HairOfTheDog

*New* The FreeRepublic Saddle Club - Who's Who *pics*

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.

That's OK with me. I draw in pencils and charcoals. For some reason I'm not a big fan with colors in my pictures.

Can't wait til tomorrow. I'm almost too nervous to sleep!

We didn't have to fill out any forms for her being a minor. We couldn't go past the first security guard for the line.

It took all I had to walk back to the car without cryin'. sniff, sniff

We had to ride a glass elevator and hubby was ASKING to die!!!! Kept telling me look out there mommadoo. (he knows I'm scared of heights. grrrr) I just hugged the wall and closed my eyes. LOL.

Has she ever been on a trip like this by herself before?

What time will she get there? Does she have to change plans anywhere?

No, she's never been on a trip like this, never been on a plane.

She'll get to Hair's about 9:30. THEIR time I think.

No changes on the way there...but coming home, she'll have @1 1/2 hr. delay in Tenn.

I will be on ABSOLUTE pins and needles till they call. BELIEVE ME....that plane is HEAVILY loaded with lotsa Jesus Angels. (sigh)

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.

She's in the air again! headed our way!

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.

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:)

Well, I won't be able to post from the airport, but I'll have her call her mom!

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!

B, I don't know if she has a window seat. She WAS saying she didn't want one because she didn't want to see the earth WAAAY down there. LOL.

If she peeks out on the landing approach, I'm sure it'll take her breath away!!!

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.

Does his belly still make gurgly/growly type noises? If he lets ya, put your ear on his side and listen. If it's 'noisy' in there, he's probably OK, and not going 'colicky'. At least, that's what my vet has told me the first few times I paniced and called him.

Finally, it sank in my head.....listen first...THEN see if I should freak out. LOL!

Okay, 10 minutes out so probably a wait of 30minutes here before I hear anything. I've got the flight tracker up in another window so I can watch.
