Oh, hopefully it wont come back. My horse had the bumps on the sclera of his eye. Freaked me out. We had to put ointment in his eyes for over a month, and it got to be so difficult. So kind of you take her in. She looks super sweet and she is pretty cute, parrot mouth and all. ;> and on the draft mixes, it does not take long for thier feet to get wonky . Miss one trim and they can look like nothings been done for ages.. must be all those pounds they carry.

Thank you!! She definitely has a cute personality. Such a sweet horse. When you get on her, you get this feeling.. you just know she's safe. Never felt that on any other horse before. Not a care in the world. And that tongue. Oh my.. lol galloping through the field with her tongue flapping in the wind.. its enough to turn any bad day into a good one. You know how some horses have "itchy spots"? Floocie's 'itchy spot' is inside her mouth. She loves you to scratch her tongue. Weird as can be. That horse is something. Lol im just glad she is finally on the road to recovery. She's only 9! So hopefully this works and we can have many more laughs and maybe more years together. :)

Have you thought of doing some dressage with this horse? She is nicely balanced when working and while she might not be a world class horse I think she might do quite well.

Best wishes on the cancer and it not coming back. In other animals that sort of cancer is usually not fast growing, so hopefully this surgery will get it all and she will live a fine long life.

Apparently, according to the woman that bred and raised her, she was put through dressage training from age 3 to 7. She was up to training level 3. But then she was sold and passed around so her training ceased. I use her as a trail horse. I have thought about maybe doing a little with her. But I would need to find a decent priced and PATIENT trainer as I have not the best English posture and I have an issue with my heels. I don't stick them down enough. Horrible and hard habit to break. Id have to have as much training as she would need in fine tuning/refreshing... :) Maybe that's something I should look into. It could be a goal for us.

Oh my goodness, I am in love with this horse! She is just my style. BIG and BAY I really, really like her. Better be glad you aren't in KY! Heheh I've always wanted a TB/draft cross.

Bay? I don't see that at all.

Good luck on the surgery-hope that takes care of the problem & there is no recurrence. So nice to have a horse you feel safe on.

Haha, you're so right. I was looking on my phone and could have sworn she was a wild-bay.

On that note, I don't like her as much anymore.

;) Totally kidding.

She has a nice Lonngggg shoulder! Though it could be more sloped. And her croup is lacking in length, though it's sloped well. And she has a thick throat latch. But a strong underline, and looks happy and peaceful!! Good luck with her!
