When it rains.......it pours

OK, my life is taking on the version of a bad country song here lately.
What gives??? Thanks for the encouragement on the throat issue, I have no doubt it will work out just the way God planned it to. I have had issues previously with it and had polyps removed and yada yada yada . I am not in a panic state or anything, just day by day and not looking forward to being scoped again! For those of you unfamiliar with it, they must go up your nose and down your throat with oh something the size of a pencil.
Not fun.....

Besides this fun, Tank is off again. Not sure what is going on here, he is just lethargic and not very interested in food and just seems off. I am not getting good vibes so I called the vet for a consult, better safe then sorry .
I am especially concerned because Harley is to leave Saturday and I am worried the added stress of being left behind may worsen it. I can always borrow a pal horse to keep him company but again new friend stress may be worse. Decisions , decisions.........

On another note of some positive here, the sun is shining on all my fresh mud and makes me happy. I also want to put this out there for thought for you. I have a friend with a Thoroughbred gelding that broke his hind leg last may. She had the leg operated on and pinned and he has made a great recovery, she is starting to ride him lightly and he should be trail or lightly ridden sound. The problem is she bought him to three day event and jumping is not in his future. She has since purchased another horse and would love to find "Eddie" a new home. He is not your typical Thoroughbred, he is quiet on trails and is a real lover. I think he is about 12 years old and bay with white star. He is current on all his shots and such. I think she is willing to give him to a good home. Reply to me if you are interested or know someone who is. I know the rescues are full and people are bailing out on horses and it may be hard to place him, but she just wants him to have a decent home with some more attention. She has two small children and two other horses as well. Thanks for all the encouragement and I will keep you posted on our progress here.
Happy trails......

OK How is Tank? Let us know!

Hey at least the scoping is through your NOSE! ;) It could be a whoooole lot worse there...

Its scary how many rescues are having to turn horses away. I sure hope that Eddie can find the perfect home there!

I hope Tank is feeling better. Catfish has been down also, as in the dumps down. I am having a vet out next week to look at his teeth. He's a bit ribby and just not "right."
