Ok...So you guys might hate me...Buuut, Annie broke her halter and needed a new one, so I had to dip into my vet money a bit. Anyways, my friend and I went to Wilco (which is unfortunately the most expensive tack/feed store on earth :/), and I had to get her the cheapest one they had...It's a rainbow rope halter. On the bright side, mom has her colors and I can have mine! I wanted blue to be Annie's official color, but mom wanted a maroon color. It's also neon enough for when hunting season comes around! Maybe it will help her get over her issue with ropes too!

Geez I haven't updated you guys in a while, these past few months have been totally crazy, but now I'm on bed rest for the rest of the night (I passed out because I drank a Monster energy drink and I'm really weak now so I can't do anything)
Alrightey, shall we start off on all you've missed?
1: Before I left for vacation, I went out and spent time with Annie. While I was out there, she layed down so I just layed there with her...Then I was stupid and sat on her. Thankfully she didn't care, but I know I shouldn't have done it (you really can't trust me alone with horses)
2: We went on vacation, and when we came back Annie was limping so bad she could hardly walk....I was panicking...A lot. Turns out she had a HUGE abscess. Don't worry, we are treating it though, we have bute and we are wrapping it with this stuff my boss told me to use for it (Annie got hurt on the fourth and we could only get a hold of my boss) and it popped that day...Thankfully! It was HUGE! I had a tiny one and it hurt like crazy, I can only imagine how she felt!...Anyways, guess who gets to start cleaning it out with an old toothbrush soon?...Yup. She'll love that... Annie has already started putting weight on it, and when she saw she could walk the first thing she did was start cantering around her field. She loooveesss to run!
3: We switched Annie over from Alfalfa to Orchard hay...Turns out I'm highley allergic to orchard hay...Guess I can't feed her anymore till all 3 huge bales are gone :/
Annie has taken bute surprisingly well! She really didn't like the vanilla icing flavor, but she loooved the applesauce! Which is surprising because my boss said it's usually the other way around....All well, every horse is different!....And Annie is definitely special (: I'm going to upload some pictures of her soon, but it will probably be in a new forum post with her and Brandy

who what is Brandy ? As for that abcess, clean the hoof, you can even rinse with water in a squirt bottle and apply any drying agent.
if she is a pain with her feet, just use the drawing salve and cotton and keep it wrapped for a week.

Brandy is my other mare (:
My mom doesn't want me rinsing it if it still has some of the medicine left over on it.
Thankfully all the pain in her feet are gone! She's much happier being able to run around again (:

Ha! Annie is a biker pony now! Dad's motorcycle is sitting out in the yard, and we had Annie tied out to graze, and she loves it! I've caught her "talking" to it! She likes to graze by it...It's kinda cute! I think she's telling us she needs a friend...I hope we can bring my mare home soon, I miss her soo much and Annie and Brandy were both always in herds, so I think having a companion will be good for both of them!

That would be a huge positive, provided that there's the right amount of space/shelter/provisions for two horses - they are grazing herd animals (as I'm sure you know!), and find extreme security/comfort in the presence of another of 'their own kind'. I had my QH @ home alone for nearly a year before getting my Morgan, but only due to the fact she was a strong alpha and I had the time to give her very much attention - I watched her from the start for signs of depression, etc. but there was none. When I brought Laney home, however, the scenario was complete. She went from a happy horse to a very happy horse :)
Wallaby and Stichy like this.

Thats why we were so happy about boarding Brandy, she was never really happy, and from the moment we boarded her, her ears were always up (and still are!), and it's great seeing her this happy! The only thing I worry about is the fact that Brandy is a jealous horse, and Annie seems to be very clingy, but I guess we can work on that whenever we bring my baby home.

Hey guys! I'm not dead just really...really...really...really busy. Annie's been doing great, and this last farrier visit she lifted her feet like a pro! I'm kinda frustrated that her flanks won't fill in and her spine sticks out a little, but other than that she's looking pretty good! I also got a new dog!...and she showed him who the boss was around here..But now they get along pretty well! Look at how far she's come! I'm so proud of my girl <3

She's quite the pro at smiling now, too! We are probably going to board her this winter, but we really need to work on getting her trailered to do that. Anyways, I guess I'll show you guys some pics! There aren't any recent ones because I haven't uploaded them onto my computer yet.

There might be repeats in here because I can't remember if I posted them or not, lol
