That kinda reminds me of my signature... Except it's lyrics from The Fighter by Gym Class Heroes.

The farrier was out at the barn last night and I was going to have him do Lookit. The farrier said that Lookit didn't need it done since I'm riding him enough so that his feet are being worn down. Yay! I saved $50 because I ride my horse

Lucky you! :)
My horses don't need trims very often, because they wear them down on the concrete slab (where their hay & water is) in their pastures :)

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it's the voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow"...

Keeping on the topic of hooves Bandit is having his feet checked by the farrier. He's never seen it or had it done! Yikes.

Ikr?! Natural farrier! ;)
I always let the hooves grow out a little longer in the Winter, I'm told it gives them extra grip in snow/ice, especially when they get snowballs in their hooves :/

He had to cancel because his truck broke down and he lives 40 miles away from us.

Last night my sisters horse Kayla got stuck in a gate and tore up her legs. My dad's a vet but, he was out helping his friends horse foal, we called out abother vet who live about 2 hrs away from us. He's not an equine vet so he only could help fix exterior wounds like cuts and bruises. That was until about 1:30 am whe I finally went to bed. (so tired) My dad checked her out this morning and found out that Kayla is 2 and 1/2 months pregnant! Bullets the only Mature stallion soo... It looks like he's gonna be a father. Bandit was born to my sisters other horse Blazeing Arrow. (long story)

Oh, wow, Country! We've had two "oops" babies... The first: our neighbor's stallion grew thumbs, opened the gate, politely closed it behind him, LOCKED it, and then proceeded to get MY good mare pregnant. (aka, they let him in on purpose. The worst part is, the neighbor is a SHERIFF!) The second time: one of our mares was being ridden by a cowboy and he decided that he didn't like her and threw her out into a buddy's pasture. Needless to say, there was a stud in that pasture that got her. The baby's name is Whiskey Tango Foxtrot lol.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
