Skip to comments.FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread 12
Posted on 08/07/2007 7:33:14 AM PDT 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, usually about our horses, sometimes about our dogs, gardens and other stuff we do. :~)
I have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and MissTargets will ping everyone most mornings. Let MissTargets and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list.
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.

New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
I think so :~)
I think Cyn is flaring now though, more than she did when Mark was trimming her. Not real sure, I was going to take some new pics to show you and compare to the old, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
Please add me to your ping list. TIA!!!!
Certainly, and welcome and good morning!
Do you have horses? :~)
Rattlesnakes and gators...100 degree heat with 95% humidity...ticks...mosquitoes big enough to drain you dry...you gotta wonder why people ever decided to settle some places in the deep South! ;o)
(I'm dead serious. There was an article in American Heritage magazine that proposed that theory!)
When my father was young (he grew up in Rome, GA, which is in the foothills of the mountains and quite bearable compared to down here on the GA coast) the entire town cleared out in the summer and went to the mountains. His family had a cottage in Monteagle TN and they just stayed there until fall.
No wonder nothing got done!
We had quite a few thunderstorms yesterday and last night. The rain was sorely needed. Very hot and humid though.
Cool but humid here... I can’t believe I’m actually worried about getting hay for fear of rain... in August.
Hey, I've always thought that! I'd always heard of people moving to the mountains for the summer. I think their reasoning at the time was to get away from the "bad air" that brought on the Malaria. Back then they didn't know that the mosquitoes were what was carrying it.
Classic example which you may enjoy reading (I'm a big Kipling fan, and this is from what I think may be his very best book, Rewards and Fairies): A Doctor of Medicine.
Gators and rattlesnakes? Sounds like not a good place for people, nevermind dogs!
Go ahead and link it... I don’t know exactly what you’re referring to :~)

What’s it about... I’m really quite lost... if it’s gory, I may not want to watch either!
A pride of lions attacks a young buffalo. While working to take down their prey, an alligator attempts to wrestle the kill away from the lions -- a tug of war ensues. And just when that ends, the herd of buffalo return to rescue their own...
Sounds pretty interesting. I'm assuming the buffalo walks away, at least for a while.
Sounds like a lot of drama. I never know who to root for in those things...
Well I was supposed to get hay Monday but it got rained on Monday night so he was not going to squarebale it, instead he round baled it for cattle. It has not rained in over a week and it picked that one night to rain, just my luck!
It is a little gory. If I tell you though, I spoil the ending. Guess you will never know:’)
