LAME, LAME, LAME!!!!!

I've got two horses that are lame now.

Honey has a split in the goes all the way through the hoof wall and was separating at the toe. We put a shoe on to stabilize her hoof and prevent flexing until the split grew out. While turned out, she stepped too close to one of the fence posts and cracked the toe of her bad foot on it. So ever since, she's been gimpy, pointing, and lame. I picked her hoof and brushed it off, but I can't see if the split is any worse. I DO know that she isn't getting any better.

Then today, Frankie trashed the water bucket. Big yellow dork! He and Bullwinkle have two water tubs. A 10 gallon heated tub, and a big 30 gallon tub with a sinking heater in it. He trashed the little one. The big one was more than half full. Cathy won't let me shoot him.

OFF TOPIC - I've noticed on three occasions that an Annonymous poster posted a link in the comments to porn sites. I've deleted them as I've found them. BUT - if you come across something like that, PLEASE - post a comment in the most recent post's comments and tell me where they are.

Karen, you can set your Blogger account up to email you every time someone posts a comment. That way you can find the nasty comments as they come in. :o)

Sorry to hear about Honey, and the water tub! My Honey has trashed 3 buckets this month! Luckily they were cheap-o grain buckets, not heated. I hope she starts feeling better soon! Keep us posted. I just figured out the whole moderation of comments thing yesterday! Still waiting to get to use it lol.

I have three boys that are 2 and younger, and one morning, when the 100 gallon water trough was down to about 1/3 full, one of them somehow got hold of the heating element and ripped it out, destroying the element in the process! It had only been in use about 2 weeks - the little buggers. If they can find something to tear up, they will :)

Hi there. I was clicking the next blog link and came upon yours. I've had one lame horse after another this past year. It's like an epidemic! I wish Honey the best luck.
