It was pretty this morning, with everything covered in ice. Horses included, but they all seem fine. BA is still mostly on stall rest due to the leg. I’d post pictures, but it would totally gross everyone out. Snake bites can get ugly. I put Jeff and BA out yesterday so they could get some […]
Yep, I had just finished morning rounds when Dave called. He takes his dogs out for a good run on the weekends, but today the girls engaged Mr. Skunk in a lively debate, which I believe they lost. Big time. Since Dave didn’t want to stuff the two stinky (and that’s being really polite) ladies […]
about the pie. The sweet potato pie was awesome! Really good. Better than pumpkin. The other one didn’t set, so was mushy. Mushy sugar. Still tasted okay, but I threw it in the trash. So if anyone wants to try a sweet potato pie recipe, I will send it along.
Looks like BA is doing really well! The nasty leg infection has finally burst and drained, and he is SO much happier that he is trotting around and rolling in the mud. Of course, now that he is feeling better, he isn’t so keen on seeing me. Every time I show up it is another […]
Okay, Reggie and T got a visit from the chiropractor yesterday. Reggie’s SI was seriously knocked out of joint (probable cause: T). After his adjustment he seemed much more comfortable, so we are going back to the very long and low work. Not R’s favorite, as he prefers to watch birds. And everything else. Mr. […]
So, lacking other stuff to talk about except renegotiating the field swap I did two years ago with Montpelier, I will talk about T. No good conformation shots in the above, but he is a nice, big, athletic horse. And he looks like butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth, as J3 is always saying. However, […]
Okay, I really think we might be on to something with this ulcer thing. I put him on ranitidine, which I mix with peppermint Maalox, three days ago and suddenly T has his bounce back! I’m not saying he suddenly became totally warm and fuzzy (he’s a jerk), but that trot was one of the […]
Two of my sweetest horses have found a foster home! Lifer and Gracie (Itsaladylife and Relic Peace, for those of you who want to know) impressed Janet yesterday, and since she couldn’t decide, said she’d take them both. Paws crossed that this works out superfantabulistic for all parties involved. Yes, I made that word up. […]
Tony’s potential pet human liked him well enough the first time to come back and ride him herself. She did great, and Tony was his usual lovely self. Everyone keep their paws crossed!
Was a complete disaster. I was so disappointed in T. So were J3 and Reggie, because they didn’t get to run and jump. But here’s a brief synopsis: The morning started just fine, like all the others, albeit cold and windy (probably a lesson there). The boys hopped right on the trailer (we have discovered […]
