Staying Grateful


Life seems to have a way of reminding us of the bad things more than the good when we are living in the middle of the storm in our life.  Seems to me this is the time it appears nothing is alive and growing, we must remember  “GOD has planted each one of his children to be a light in a dark world.”

This video is really a wonderful way to stop and smell the roses in our life, take a moment to thank GOD for all of our blessings.  Being able to see, walk without pain, sleep, smell, be healthy is indeed a blessing.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!

Blog Of The Year Award 2012


I am honored to receive this Award from All Things Boys – Thank you again!  I am a bit overwhelmed as blogging started out after surviving a life threatening motor vehicle accident while riding as a passenger.

How Blogging Has Helped Me

Blogging helped me fill my time, stay connected to the people in our most fragile world

Blogging has given me a sense of purpose

with the extremely long isolated days and nights (pain) turned into

 weeks than months and finally years

Almost three years of physical therapy rehabilitation learning how to walk and adapt to chronic nagging pain caused by the broken ribs that did not heal correctly along with three long surgically installed screws in my pelvis. I suffer from horrific back pain, rib pain, neuropathy in my feet, ankles and deep aching pain in my right hip where the screws were surgically drilled into my pelvis.  Pain is something I write about to help others and share why training equine in a natural way without pain and resistance is the very best way.

Please remember to trust Jesus Christ each and every day and make him your Lord & Savior as he is truly the light of our most fragile world.

Here is instructions for the Blog Of The Year 2012  

As you can see there is one gold star with the possibility of six in total.

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

Donkeys Living In The Pacific Northwest – Rain, Sores and Self Mutilation


Howdy,

Last spring after record amounts of rain in the Pacific Northwest our little mini donkey “Rocket Man” came up with a huge open sore on his little donkey boy face.  “Our equine are talked to and touched visually checked at least once a day” the big sore on his face came on fast within twelve hours.   It was a huge sore and left me perplexed but luckily the home remedy was an easy fix just took some doctoring for about a week and then his donkey fur started growing again.  Please make sure to check your horse, donkey or mule at least once a day to keep them in optimum health.

Donkeys seem to have more of a problem with this I think due to their ability to grow enough fur to live in Alaska during the winter

I have seen these open sores on the bottom of a friends horses hocks from standing in the mud and rain I suggest trying not to pick off the scabs and keep as clean and sterile as possible.   My horse Miss Lily happens to spend most of her time in the barn during the rain as well she does not like the rain.  All equine need to have the opportunity to get out of the weather and seek shelter from rain, snow, wind and relentless sunshine something we don’t get much in the Pacific Northwest, Washington.

What Can I Do To Treat Rain Rot/Scald for my horse, donkey or mule?

Shave the sore spot to see what is happening under the open sores

Use Cotton balls drenched in Betadine scrub dab and clean the sore spot

Top off the clean sores with cortisone cream to help stop the itching

If the open sores do not heal consult your vet as your sweet horse, donkey or mule may need an antibiotic .

Please remember it is most important to check your equine morning and night from head to toe looking for outchies, and making sure they are walking good and feeling good.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
