that is too cute, the pony .. going for the goodies.. Chrome looks like he is going to be a nice horse, sounds like some one used the crop one time to many with him . its good that you got him to calm down. Hope your shoulder and knee are okay.

Yup that pony is a charachter she was used in a petting zoo so she is sooo friendly if she is let out and we are out by the big horses she will come up and poke your legs with her muzzle. The first time she did it she about gave me a heart attack as I was leaning and almost fell over haha.

Ya I wish there was a way to know what happened with him. He has no problem when its in my hand and I'm riding or when I have it in my hand and go to get on. He is great lunging until I go to switch directions and then he gets all weird. We right now are connecting it with his ears as thats the only thing we can think of that would cause him to act the way he does. Between being ear twitched and having pus and gunk cleaned from the oppopsite ear daily, possiby beaten and being young all with questionable methods and background well he isn't too bad. He still loves people and even in a group of hot headed horses running ragged I can walk out and right up to him with no problems. He definitely isn't being allowed to bully or walk all over us though, he was seemingly babied as he likes to be right up on top of you and tries to use his body weight to push you around, he also had a slight nipping problem that we got rid of real quick.

Ill be fine nothing a little rest won't fix :]

Well looks like chrome still has something in that darn ear. He is an awesome ride but his ear is still needing to be squeezed out daily. Sooo another vet call is in order. The guy will be coming out on Wednesday and I wish wr had better closer equine vets cause I am not very impressed with this guy already. Had this really been an abscess it would have cleared up with us doing everything he told us. However he didnt listen about our worry that there was something lodged. We'll see.

Update on him. Well he is still oozing -_- we are thinking he has an ear tooth possibly however it I way smaller then it initially was. He also had front shoes out on because he was looking super off but upon our farrier testing him ( hoof testers, checked make sure he wasn't out anywhere and watching him move) we think he began to founder at his old home and is tender footed in front. So we are going to start out with basic front shoes and see if that helps and go from there. After we out them on he looked way more comfortable already so hoping it works .

Haha she is so cute if she wants out she will bucker and nose bump we gate. At 20 she still has quite the attitude though especially if tied she rears an paw and is a total brat but she works for the boys till they are confident enough with the big guys, slowly getting there haha.

Yes we have. The vet said he didn't think he was or would be blind/impaired however I have noticed he will tilt his head funny to see me and likes to keep me on his right 'good' side. He lets me do whatever I want he just at times will jump or turn his head funny. He really is a great guy for being 4 and having been through so much so early. He was great for being his first time (that we know of) having shoes put on.

Oh I understand haha. He was checked for hearing and sight when I first looked at him. We initially thought it would be a simple fox but not so much. 4 months in and it still hasn't gone away, it's gotten smaller but still oozing. He is great but I really need to get him healed so I can move him on to a new home and get my barrel horse. He was more of a rescue even though I wanted something completely different I just couldn't leave him there. My farrier and trainer have been amazing I just wish we had better equine vets here , mine is decent but nothing special besides being easy on the eyes haha.

ETA: he had a second surgery on the ear to clear it out about 2 months ago it seemed to be clearing up nicely but after a month he started ripping his fly mask off I think itching it and re opening it. Not really sure, going to give it a few more weeks but I may have to borrow a trailer and haul him to the vet and have him fully put under and sliced open to see what is causing it to not heal.
