Meet my Boys

Some of you might know me as Crazy4sinbad off of UHB.

Anyway. I thought i had better introduce you to my two boys, Sinbad and Barney.

Sinbad, is a 32 year old Welsh Cob D x Anglo Arab gelding.

Barney (we, unfortuantley don't own him, just look after him) is a 40 something, New Forest x everything (i think he has some Welsh Pony, TB, Arab and Appaloosa in him) gelding. He's had a bit of a bad life, and is partially blind. He was extremely mistrustful when he first arrived, but i', gaining his trust.

Anyway, i have about 10 billion pictures of them, so i apologize for the ridiculous amount of photos.



Well, thats my boys!
We also used to look after a Shetland, for over a year, called Hamish, but he moved a few months ago.

Sorry if my pictures deformed your pages, or were too big.

Hey Crazy4Sinbad! It's Jenny V. from UHB. Darling pics of Sinbad, Barney, and Hamish. I love the name Hamish. Dad gum, I need to put up pics of Texas & Misty on here. I know how you feel about lots of pics. I've got an enormous folder of horse pics, and I've only got two!

Jenny, the bluegrass music chic.
I love my babies. Texas & Misty!

I would rather you didn't comment on their weight. I know you mean well but...

Some of the pictures of Sinbad, where ones of him coming out of last winter (picture 3). He was dropping weight all through winter, and coming into spring, we really thought we were going to lose him.
He's well fed, he's fed Spillers Senior Conditioning Mix and Alpha Oil A chaff (both fatty, vit rich feeds). He's old (veterns do have trouble putting on and keeping weight just so you know) and he has regular check ups from the vet.
I know he's a bit of a skinny malinky, but he's a good weight now, and he has a thick rug for the winter, and of course, he'll be fed sugar beet and hay when it gets colder.

Barney, he was skinny when he came to us in April, but he's MUCH better now. He's laminitic, so during the summer, he had to be penned up during the day. He's put loads of weight on, now, and has a little pot belly.

You're right to be concerned, but their age is kind of an excuse, its hard keeping weight on a 32 year old and 40 something.
Sorry if i came across rude, i understand your concern. Their both happy, healthy boys.

Thanks for the comments guys.
