According to a text from my dad I received about an hour ago, the little guy is on his feet again!

And as an "official" announcement and after a VERY brief discussion with my parents, we're going to go with Trooper as his name


But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.

Hope things keep going well.
Just wanted to say that this girl of mine was a rejected foal and she's now 22 years old
Please don't make the mistake that her well meaning breeders did though and treat the foal like a puppy dog because at 15.2 they can be really dangerous without knowing it if they still think that way - and when I got here she did!!!

Yay for trooper!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

So Trooper was finally well enough to go outside today :) He's not up to full speed yet and he will definitely have to be monitored for any residual effects of his head injury, but my mom is keeping a very watchful eye on him (considering how accident prone he has been). From the most recent report, he was happily trotting around the pasture with his filly friend and he has been quite vocal, as if overjoyed to be out of that stuffy stable haha In a couple of days, we're going to try and get him to feed with the mare again.

Also, my dad and my uncle are going to be working on padding his stall later this evening. More updates as I get them

Hey guys!

Little Trooper is doing just fine. As of this morning, he was back to his usual playful self :)

The mommy of his filly friend is still accepting him to suckle, so I couldn't be happier about that!

More updates soon!
