Good Morning Everyone
Not so nice today. Overcast skies and a bit on the chilly side. Winter is-a-coming. Brrrrrrrr
Boss is off to London today so it shall be quiet around here for about one week.
I am still half asleep. I drove to work and do not remember much of the trip, That is bad man!!! Must wake up. Need a coffee!
Have a great day/evening everyone and enjoy!
Ummmmffff..... Its one o'clock in the morning here and I've got an hour left before I can go home. I hope the frigging deer aren't hitch hiking tonite. I'd LOOOOVE a coffee but if I do I won't get to sleep before 5:00-6:00. and that ain't good. As it is I'll be lucky to be asleep by 4:00..... I really dislike this new schedule. Hopefully it won't last long. Hope y'all have a nice day. Ours here is supposed to be warm and clear.

They didn't bite my head off like I expected them to. They asked about his age, lifestyle and exercise routine and after I answered those questions, one of them said he gets too much to eat (too much concentrate, not too much grass). They also said it could be anything from a neurogical problem to him pulling a muscle in the field. Another poster also said we should monitor him for biliary.( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biliary_fever )
Those posts made me really stressed and worried. But I know my horse and I can also rest assured knowing he's being closely monitored by the grooms and the yard owners. They will let me know immediately if something serious is going on with him, like they did when he walked like a drunk...
Morning Ruby. Does the stable have an exercise walker? A mechanical carosel you tether the horse to and it walks them in a circle? We used them when I was working with race horses. Keeps them trim and in shape without the stress of constant riding. It is a electric motorized contraption with 3-4 arms/booms that extend out for you to tie the horse to. It rotates at a slow walking pace. Wonderful gizmo to have around a stable.

Sounds like it might be a sweet feed mixture of oats,corn and molasses with some vitamin supplements added. We just call it sweet feed here. It can be pretty fattening for a horse if they are overfed and/or fairly inactive.

Thanks Princess. I shall do that.
I am trying to start a herb garden but it is not going very well as my little female doggy keeps pulling the plants out. She seems to like the smell of herbs. I have a huge pot outside my backdoor with mint in it. That she does not touch, cause I think the smell is too strong for her liking. Oh I shall always have mint!
Have a wonderful day /evening.
Sounds like you might have an African strain of Wisteria.....

Hey Okimar
What type of work do you do that you work nights? They say that you get used to sleeping during the day but I don't know about that .......... Dogs barking, lawnmowers revving up and down the grass and kids shouting. No cannot be done.
I hope you get some sleep when you get off work and that there are no frigging deer hitch hiking (that is funny). Have a good sleep Okimar.

Okimar, it grows close to the ground and moves quickly. It is very pretty but "gawd harry" it takes over the whole garden bed. I pulled some out on Monday and it comes away quite easily so I reckon I need to make it my mission to start pulling it out on this weekend. I like the colour but ..........
My son says I should pour motor car oil on it. I told him he is mad cause it will kill my ferns and palms.

Hey Ruby
I am so pleased to hear that you have some news of Spartan. I been keeping him in my prayers when I tune in to the Big Guy at night. So the grooms and yard owners will keep you informed if there is anything the matter or he gets worse. That is great news! At least you know that he is getting the attention that he needs. Maybe horses are like us. Some days we feel just fine and the next we feel up-to-sh*t. Do you think that is possible. Mind you anything is possible in this life hey! And are you okay?
Thank you for the prayers. Yes, I know he's being looked after well when I'm not there. I also think horses have their "off" days like us. And just like we sometimes get aches and pains, so do they.(And we don't have to carry a person on our backs).

And I'm okay, thank you for asking :) I'm just hoping and praying he gets better. Or else I'm going to have to retire him and just let him live his life just being a horse and getting spoiled by me and other horse owners.

This keeping the house all up to date is getting a bit boring. I don't want anyone to mess the place up and I am sweeping the floor after the dogs walk inside from outside. They bring all dead leaves into the house and I feel that I have to tidy after them.
Wow, it does sound like a full-time job. Pets don't know when they're messing up the place. Just like when their paws are full of mud and they jump up against you in the morning before work... Fortunately our dog doesn't jump up. At 60kg it's a little disastrous if she jumps up against people - she'd jump us over. Smaller dogs don't necessarily understand that their paws are muddy, and not all of them know not to jump up or jump onto the clean couch or bed... Lol

Our cat's right front paw was sore and a little swollen I think on Sunday night, she was walking on three legs. She didn't want us to get anywhere near her leg, she'd growl at us if we touched it. We were going to take her to the vet the following morning (Monday) but her leg was magically healed and she's walking on it fine now. Don't know if she maybe sprained it or something. Just glad she's ok

Hey Ruby
Nothing wrong with Spartan being retired if the need arises. He can enjoy himself eating and getting spoilt by you and other people. Be a laid-back-horse. I can just picture him. In any event I will continue praying. Nothing wrong with that either.
My dogs both do not understand about jumping up. Especially the female. I have a white duvet cover (yes white) and when it rains she jumps on my bed and there are muddy paw marks all over it. She really does not understand what she has done wrong when she does this. I tried to show her the marks and she looks at me with her head on one side and her tail wagging. Not a clue. She does not understand .The male cannot get on the bed as it is too high for him (he had a hip replacement, the equivalent to a persons hip replacement) so he has to be picked up. I suppose my tidying up all the time will wear itself out (I can feel it already) and I will get back to normal. Oh well it was nice whilst it lasted.

Ignoreer die man wat boodskappe skryf oor "Bipolar". Hy is fieslik en 'n klein bliksim.
(I told you my Afrikaans was dreadful). Hope I got the message across to you Ha ha ha

Your cat sounds as if it did sprain her paw/foot. They are resilient creatures cats are. Does not surprise me that she was fine on Monday. Maybe she heard the word "Vet" and decided to make her foot heal faster. I am pleased that she is okay.

Ruby don't worry too much about Spartan. What will be, will be and no amount of worrying is going to change that. You have the grooms and yard owners watching him and they will let you know how things are going. I will continue, as I said already, saying prayers for Spartan each night. I have found through this life, that prayer does work. So he will be fine my friend.

Will pop back in later on to say "howzit"

Mens spel bliksem met 'n E, maar ek het die boodskap gekry, dankie. Dalk moet ons in Afrikaans vir mekaar begin tik. Then you can "sommer" improve your Afrikaans at the same time. Lol

Trolls will be trolls, and I think we should stop feeding it. We shouldn't even mention its existence. It is just a figment of our imaginations, it's not real. And we should treat it as such.

Hey Ruby
Yes I agree with you.
Dankie dat jy bliksem respel (?) vir my. As ons in Afrikaans tik vir personlike boodeskappe dit is goed. And perhaps my Afrikaans will improve. I warn you it is really bad. It took me ages to send that first message to you but I am prepared to give it a try. Your on ...... ha ha ha
Yes I agree that it is not real and we shall treat it as such .Ignore.

Speak a bit later at lunch time hopefully.

Hey Ruby
I am sat here at the computer and it is bloody pouring with rain outside. Can you credit it? Rain in winter on the Highveld. It is going to be a bloody cold winter friend. I need to get a heater from Pick 'n Pay. One of the two bar things that do not cost a fortune as they only really last 12 months and then you have to bin them cause they are broken. Dammit man!

Hey Andet1987,
Nice to speak to you again. No I have not tried glucosamine chondroitin supplement. My main problem is Nerve End Damage in my feet. The Doctor says it could be from high Blood Pressure, bad circulation or wearing shoes that did not fit properly!!!! So they are leaving it open that it could have been caused by "anything". My feet cramp very badly (the arthritis cramp and pain) and it takes a good half an hour for them to un-cramp. And it only happens half an hour after going to bed. As soon as you get into bed, the pain starts shortly thereafter. It wakes a person up and it is not easy to get a good nights sleep at all. I drink a lot of water during the day as the Doc says that it helps, but at night this is a problem. I don't eat peanuts but I do eat peas (Legumes). The only thing that has helped me so far is the script meds that the Doc prescribed but if I can I would prefer to do it through diet.
There are a lot of foods that I have had to give up because of the arthritis and nerve end damage. It is not actually fair, is it. Fruit, veg, fish and stay away from red meat. Don't drink alcohol at all otherwise you go through hell. I would be interested to hear what your doctor has to say about it. It seems that it never ever goes completely away. It is always there in the background waiting to "pounce: hey!

<quoted text>The million dollar figure being tossed around as what Bundy owes has been found to be a gross exageration. The real number is closer to $300,000 which includes legal fees and court costs from over the past 2 decades. Now for some more recently immerging facts. Bundy is the LAST cattle rancher left in his immediate area. The rest have been forced out by BLM over the last 20-30 years thru the increasing cost of those grazing fees. Also the BLM was limiting where and how much graze land the ranchers could utilize. These factors combined with the hostility towards ranchers by buearacrats who had designs on their acreage caused many to sell out. This is much more about the land than a few cows on what property and how much a rancher pays for grass. Its about an expanded Federal Government and the dangerous growth in its power to regulate/fine/incarcerate on the whim of some minor Buearacrats. Tell me,why does the Dept of Education need an ARMED section? Dept of Agriculture? NOAA? FDA? There are gun toting Buearacrats in these and other relatively peaceful sectors of Government services. This is a potentially deadly trend in an over reaching government bent on consolidating its expanded role in American's everday lives.
This has become much much more than a dispute about a few cows doing a dine-n-dash on public lands.......... And people are watching.
Were they 'watching' when it was pointed out to the government 140 years ago, that the land wouldn't support a population the size said government was poised to encourage? Were they watching, when it was decided that a desert would be a good place to raise cattle at all? Were they watching when Los Angeles decided Lake Havasu was capable of supporting the potable water needs of the population in 4 States?

They should have been. It's a bit late now.
