    The vet came out on Saturday to vaccinate my horses and float their teeth. She confirmed my fears that Bleu, my main horse is getting too fat :eek: He normally stays pretty slim but the grass is especially good this year so my poor boy is on a diet! She is afraid if he gains much more weight than he may founder. We definitely don't want that!! Until further notice, my boy is in a stall during the day and let out in a run at night. He's gonna get grumpy but it's for his own good :rolleyes:

    Aww!
    I really want a horse and have been doing riding lessons for several years, but the board is too expensive over here :(. $600 a month.

    Aww poor boy!

    get him a crazing muzzle!!!

    We used to have one for our pony that foundered a while back so he wouldn't get it worse. (Once they get it, thats it for them but light work or pasture ornament).

    They are fabulous!

    Tucker - board went up over here as well, at a friends old stable(two barns attached with about 20 stalls in each, plus attached indoor arena, outdoor arena and cross country field) They were charging $250 for it, now its $500+ something.
    Its because of the drought and the shortage of hay.

    Ya, it sucks :(.
    I have pictures covering my bedroom door of horses I would like to own.
    *sigh*
    At this rate, I won't be owning unless I OWN the property it stays on. LOL.
