Due to financial problems I am selling my horse.  Good news is: she's going back to her previous owners.  They're very excited about getting her back.  She's leaving this afternoon :(

Other then that I've been having problems signing in here, so will have to contact the admin people.  So haven't been here in a bit, so what's new?

That must have been reaaly difficult to see her go Brigitte, but at least she is going to another good home.

Not much new here, we went to see my Mother on the weekend, she has just turned 83 and lives alone.  It takes around two hours to get there, on the way we couldn't help noticing how dry the countryside is becoming again, already there is talk of another drought and  in some areas farmers are beginning to face the possibility of hand feeding livestock again.

Elaine, yes, it was very difficult to see her go. I didn't cry until the trailer was leaving the driveway. The woman who picked her up went into overdrive about having to leave once DD #3 said she wanted to give her one more treat. She didn't get to do it, because the woman already was closing the trailer before I even got out properly :(   Well, I got an email this weekend that the horse is doing ok, although she's been coughing quite a bit these days. She's had a cough on and off for about a year and I did tell the people who took her back about it. I had to write it down for her again (she obviously didn't take notes ...) and gave her the number of my vet so that her vet can check up with them. I didn't keep the coughing a secret and I hope they can get it back under control. Whenever she coughed here the vet had told me to give her some steroids for a few days and it helped, she stopped, but started again a month or so later.

It's quite dry here, too, but we're supposed to get some rain tomorrow and two days after that. Hopefully that helps a bit.
