Isabella is due for a teeth floating. Her vet does it and he uses sedation and power tools. Last year was the first time I ever saw a teeth floating and thought it was very barbaric. I wish I could find someone to do it the other way. It took Isabella a couple of hours to come out of the sedation..makes me worry.
I had to share this picture. Today, my hubby and I went to visit a friend that lives on a small farm. They raise mini pigs and had a litter born on January 27th. I love piggies! (I don't eat pork...haven't had a bite of it since the movie "Babe" came out). This was my first time holding a baby pig! Loved it!
Here are a couple pictures of Doc aka chunky monkey. He makes bre look so small.
He settled right into his temp stall really well. After we asses him be will move closer to my other two. Right now he is next to faith a very pretty mustang. I will get better pics today.

When I was in horseshoeing school I was not the best at the iron work. The instructor took pity on me and told me that what really made successful farriers was their horse handling ability. So true. I eventually got so I could make passable calks, clips, square toes and bar shoes but I was never one of those farriers who made a shoe from bar stock that looked like it came out of a machine. Mine looked like they came out of a forge. However, I could shoe horses other farriers couldn't without much trouble. I had many of the same customers for 25 years because they appreciated the way that I handled their horses and I always did a conscientious job. My shoes fit and didn't come off. My nails were straight and the clinches smooth. I came to feel like I have a gift with animals that is from God. I used to hunt. I gave it up. I felt like to kill a defenseless animal would be a violation of my gift. Its the same way with veterinarians. Some have a special way with animals and others don't. You have to give all equine vets credit though. Every day they put themselves in positions where they could be maimed or killed.
