Shoeing in front only has been common for decades for reasons of necessity or economy. Some pacers are shod behind only while they are being gaited. And I'm sure plenty of people ride horses that have lost a shoe or two with out a problem as well. Though that is a bit of a bugbear with me.

Ok. I was there today. It is very confusing, even reading the rules.
Today was just establishing an order/ranking. Everyone those that were eliminated today can ride tomoz but at the bottom.
Tomorrow, starts again, don't know draw or order yet. But from tomorrow's results, will get the top 10 teams and top 50 individual riders. Those will then compete Thursday.
Clear as mud?

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
ppg has the best rump bar setup as it is one the only ones I have seen that can be released easily with a horse pushing on it. I'll see if I can prompt a pic or two out of her.

Sounds odd to me, unless you weigh 100kg plus.

This is probably the hardest topic to read, that I have ever opened on here.

I first met Buster when Nicolle returned from WA and it was clear he was a special boy even then. Nicolle had already entered him in South West Horse Trials and I was keen to meet the horse that we were taking. He didn't disapoint.

Whilst early success eluded him at that event, largely due to him being incredibly tense, discussions ensued about his potential for great things. By the time of his next event at Heytesbury, Half Moon Eventing had been born. It was very nearly stillborn as he proceeded to display an "athleticism" in the warmup, worthy of a Spanish Stallion. He ultimately collected his first placing that day, and in doing so started showing the early signs of the amazing trust that was to develop between him and Nicolle.

He quickly progressed to the point where we laid down the path he needed to take to reach Melbourne International Horse Trials in 2015. I have no doubt we would have made it, but for the intervention of fate and no doubt that was just the beginning.

Despite being there for most of his events, despite having an enormous treasure trove of memories from that time, the thing that stands out the most, is the way this horse used to lock on to wherever Nicolle was. It could be as small a glimpse as the brim of a hat coming through a doorway, and he knew it was Nicolle. It was a very special bond.

Vale Buster. Massive hugs Nicolle.

This is the closing of a chapter, not the end of the story.

Step away from the computer,
This may sound weird, but I can get really absorbed into serial killer movies, the way their minds must be so twisted intrigues me, in a curious way, not a morbid way.

Great cars, but there's a reason they are known as "retirement funds" to a lot of mechanics.

My standard reply is 'I don't have a computer'. They really don't know what to say after that and usually hang up.


I haven't had one ring for ages since I said this so hopefully I have been wiped off their list

My lovely Louis is 15 months old and the last week or so has been acting a bit weird. He seems to be turning into a teenager and I already have two human versions so I don't need a furry one! Crying or Very Sad

He is happy to sit on the couch with OH and I, but will go and lay on the couch in the other room when the kids are in 'his' lounge. He is spending more time outside, early in the morning he heads out the backyard and comes back inside sheepish for breakfast. He is doing this after dinner as well, just before dawn and just after dark it seems to be. I can't find any (new) signs of mischief.
He seems to get embarrassed when we watch him play like a puppy, but after a moment will get over it and continue Rolls Eyes
His recall is getting bad at home (in the paddock), he will come but not close enough to clip a lead on (to tie him up to stop him annoying the horses) but is still good elsewhere; including being tied up at the shed with us.

To me, he is acting just like a teenager- going out, hiding from family, awkward/embarrassed and disobedient Embarassed Laughing Embarassed

Is this normal???

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Didn't read all the comments, buuut..

I actually really like the idea of the challenge.
Yeah it's a pain in the ass seeing all of those videos on Faceslap, but look at how much of a success it has been at raising awareness of the disease.
I'd never even heard of it before, as I'd imagine most others hadn't, but now look at the knowledge spreading about it.

I think the donations are just an added bonus. And now that people are aware of it, when someone is feeling generous and wants to donate to a good cause, they may just think of this one.

I'd rather have a cause like this spreading around on Facebook, where everyone can have a bit of a laugh and some fun, then some of those other stupid causes where they just say "give us money".

I think for the most part the challenge has raised awareness of motor neurone disease and having known someone who died from it, it is a truly horrible disease. It has also raised a lot of money which will be used for research and support.

Yes for some it will just be the next social media thing with no real awareness of why, but for many it has made them think a little and donate to something that isn't quite as fashionable a cause.

In regard to being pressured into it or not being able to afford it, you can say no, however most of us can afford to at least donate the price of a coffee, beer, drink of choice and have one less this week. Yes, there are some out there that can't afford even that, however they are probably not the people on this forum with horses. Razz
