Thought 4the day: Life is twists and turns and ups and downs. Not just for us but for all the horses and ponies and any animal on the planet. Things can run smoothly and then all change and not sure where you are heading! We have a few at the moment that when they see the trailer they assume there off elsewhere as they are not quite settled yet but in time they will be. Yes they will fingers crossed find homes but it has to be the right home one that will make them want to leave. The connection can be instantanious with some of the horses and perspective new mums and dads and to see that is beautiful :o) It means there happy ever after is just around that next corner...
Fact 4the day: Oleanders are a common ornamental shrub, often growing along roadways and used as a visual barrier or wind screen. All varieties are extremely toxic.
The first signs of oleander poisoning will usually be profuse diorrhea which may be bloody. Immediate veterinary intervention and a lot of good luck is required to prevent death, which often occurs within 8 to 24 hours after ingestion. Administration of laxatives to purge the remaining oleander from the horse and prompt treatment of symptoms which the horse presents can sometimes save the horse.
