    Kay, I know that Vick is just breaking your heart. Maybe Ninnie is right and she would sell to someone else.

    If that doesn't work, well.....I'm assuming that 50 lbs on a mini or shetland is more like 200 on a full sized horse. If all else fails, you might try contacting the local SPCA or Humane Society and making a report of an underweight horse. They will do an investigation and speak with and work with the owner to educate them and remedy the problem. If they don't comply, then the agency will seize the horse and you can get him back from them.

    Can you tell I watch WAY too much Animal Cops and Animal Precinct? It drives Mom nuts, 'cause I'll call her boo-hooing about some really pitiful animal.

    Kay, I was just about to suggest the same as Gai.

    Gai - France is a pretty big country, I'm sure there's room for both of us - just! LOL Actually, my heart leapt when I read the first half of that sentence! Aw, go on! I knew some people who shipped horses with them here from the States. A French friend said to me 'they're crazy, it cost a fortune, why didn't they sell them and buy more here? Would be cheaper - its not like they were PEDIGREEs'!!! They just didn't understand that those horses were beloved pets and the people who brought them would just have soon have left their KIDS behind! Duh!!!

    Kay, I was on the 2d floor balcony...where was I supposed to go? Well, I did come inside. lol

    It's not all that bad. I remember the first one I encountered when we got here. I was in the kitchen making Courtney's lunch. As I'm standing there, I could feel the floor ripple under my feet. Was pretty cool! lol
    Earthquakes happen here all the time. Sometimes we feel them, sometimes we don't.

    Terri, I'd have hid in a cupboard! Or stood in a doorframe - aren't they supposed to stay standing if the building falls down? LOL I've been in an earthquake simulator in the Science Museum in London but I'm sure it's not the saame as the real thing! I even found that scary! LOL

    My house is built out of cinderblocks. Total "brick and morter" so to speak. This house is a tank...it's not going anywhere.

    Yup, I know just what Terri means! I was in the chat one night when we had a 5.0 quake, just a nice roller. :wink: My dining room light was swinging in a 2" arc, but nothing fell off the shelves so no worries! lol

    Gosh Kay, how awful about Vic! I'll bet it was hard to leave without him. :(

    And you're right - they should've taken one look at Joanne before the show & snatched her up! lol She's a beauty for sure. Their loss!

    Kay, when I hear stories like this, I want to lock up the owner's of these animals and starve about 100 pounds off of them!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: If you can't take care of an animal properly, let them go to someone who can!!!!!
    Joanne looks like she is loving showing off...standing there so pretty and perfect, saying "LOOK AT ME!!!! I am a Princess....where's my crown???" (or trophy, ribbons and CASH) :D :D 8) 8) :D :D
    Harley is going to be your problem child??? Nawwww, he is just revving along, living up to his name 8) 8) 8) *Tell him that Harley's don't jump...they just cruise along and go really fast* :lol: :lol:
    Promise's coloring is so soft and silky looking...no wonder she is a trophy magnent :D :D :D
    Tiny Dancer is so pretty and petite looking...
    No doubt that you have a beautiful herd of horses!!!!!!! :D :D 8) 8) :D :D

    Kay, I predict that you will get at least ONE of those money prizes! Sure hope you walk away with all of it tho.

    Ya'll should have heard Kay about the earthquake, was quite comical. Sorry, Kay, don't mean to laugh at you, I'm laughing with you.
    At least there weren't any chickens running up trees. lol (that's for those of you who remember the big one that hit here last year)

    Here's a couple pics....don't have to worry about the balcony...it's cement.

    That's the crack from the BIG one from last year. Yes, I have to sweep out there again...ugh!

    Terri, I'm with you! I'm sure Kay is gonna bring home ALL the prize money!

    BTW, what is that stuff on the table? Or do I really want to know? LOL

    Ya'll know that if Kay brings home all the money...ok, ANY of the money from the show, we will all hear her hooting and hollaring about her winnings, right? lol
    Kay, just get them babies to do what you need them to do and take ALL the prizes!

    Actually, the table is really dirty! It's a resin sort of material that makes the table top and it "collects" dirt really fast. It's really hard to keep clean here.
    That thing on the right side of it is hubs dirty, yucky ashtray. EWW!!!Hmmm....I'm thinking....he's gonna be gone for 3 weeks, I can toss it out, right?
    He usually cleans it and puts it away while he is gone, but he had been on board and wasn't able to get home before they left. Guess I'll clean it like a good wife. lol

    Hubby laughed so hard when I told him you were having a quake while we were on the phone. At first he thought I was joking!

    Sorry about the cam we have had storm after storm roll through. Its on right now but if more roll through I will have to turn it off. It will be off this weekend while my daughters boyfriend does some fine tuning on my computer. Its making odd noises ughhhh

    How are Patches and Harley? My computer was out all day and evening due to the big storms rolling thru....Big power surge in the morning and surge protector worked well and shut everything down....only I couldn't get the #$2%# thing to reset. Had to wait for hubby to do it......
    :? :wink: :? I'm sure I missed something cute!

    Missed the new name for Patches baby! Harley sounds good for the way he zooms around! Cute. Was wondering why I couldn't see anything and kept getting error messages when I went to watch the precious baby! Sorry to hear about Vic. Knew a girl in WI who collected rescue horses, and didn't know what she was doing. Grrrrr.
