Worked & rode there. Bonnie Lee married a veterinarian & lives in Bel Air. Who are  you?

Does anyone know whatever happened to Nancy Goll who spent a lot of time at Golden Vein Farm?

Yes I remember Golden Vein- I took lessons there when I was in jr high / high school, with Bonnie Watts.  I loved loved loved this place. Sadly, once I started jumping and taking some pretty bad falls, my parents encouraged me to find another interest. I wish I had fought them on that... I loved riding so much.   I remember my favorite horse named Trigger, and when he died. It was so sad. Remember another horse named Angel, that I only rode a few times because I lacked the skills to handle him.   Also recall two older girls named Sue and Bonnie who were awesome equestrians, and they were fun, too.  I went to GV summer camp, and I remember galloping up hills in the woods on my horse and loving every moment.  Great fun, great memories.  Is the farm still there?

The farm is still basicaly there with about 4 new houuses built where the 2 barns were beyond the riding ring.

bonnie Lee lives in Bel Air & I don't know whatever happened to Sue.

I went to camp there several summers. I ran across an old camp brochure and old pictures a while back. The horse Angel you mentioned was the horse I rode most often. He was a homebred Tb about 16.1, a nice horse. I still ride and used to event. now just foxhunting and shoveling poop for my six horses.

I see the last post was a year ago so who knows if anyone will read this.  If so - I attended GV during the early -mid 60's or so, when in my early teens.  I remember BT Watts, Bonnie Lee, Twig (I think, her sister), and Sue. Also campers Marcia A (Columbus OH) and Timmi B (NY, NY), and Penny, the local girl who was a fixture during my summers there.  I have wonderful memories of being both a camper and 'stable crew'.  I learned so much and am so grateful for the summers I was able to spend there. Would love to hear from anyone who was a part of that experience, also any news of where/how people are at this point in their lives.  I don't ride at all any more but did ride and even fox hunt into my adulthood.  Still love horses and miss those days very much.

Do you treat brachial vein clot with anticoagulants.

My very limited experience with this goes back decades. Without invoking a Dr. G conslutation, I say no. But that does not seem to make a lot of sense. I would think that a big fresh clot in the brachial vein would have a reasonably high chance of breaking off and embolizing to the lungs.
