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!
Stop it! Your making me jealous...again!
Lordy, that's beautiful. I'll bet your horse enjoys that view too.
I'm bringing my sketch pad, hopefully there's a lot I can draw.
He does... He loves to ride trail, and I love to follow his ears. I am really looking forward to getting to ride a lot this summer!
Hopefully! It's not that green yet, but the woods are starting to wake up. :~D
New thread huh? Guess you are really getting ready to go! Packed yet? : )
Heh - Actually no, I'm not ;~D
Well, good night, have a good flight, call on my cell phone anytime if you need to reach me, and I'll see you in the morning!
Can't wait til tomorrow. I'm almost too nervous to sleep!
Sleep.... you have to get up at some incredibly early hour! sorry about that part! I'm beat, I'm going to bed now myself!
Well, Markie's on her way.
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?
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)
She has a stop, but no plane change on this flight.
She is on the ground right now at Chicago midway.
I'll have her call you the minute we link up!
But you can keep checking that link too, to see if it stays on time.
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!
"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?"
What's your record for consecutive questions asked?
20 mins to go. (tap tap tap)
OK...13 mins to go and I'm signing off so I can wait for THE call!!!! Wooohoooo!!!
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.
My memory is getting really bad - seems like you tried bran and molasses last time and it didn't work? Have you heard any gut sounds?
Looks like her plane has landed.
Thank you sir :) Let us know when you all have her with you.
Well, actually I'm sitting here at work waiting for updates too. Hair went to pick her up. ;~D
LOL - well figure 10-15mins at least to get to the gate, get unloaded and walk down to where Hair can meet her.
