Beautiful weekend. Since I can't ride mine yet, Spent the weekend, getting up the dead cactus, so the pasture is now cactus free!!! Now have to work on the dead mesquite trees. Spent 3-1/2 hrs trying to get my new mare in the horse trailer friday. She's had 4 races.... you'd think she would be ok with a trailer. At the rescue they have a bit 6 horse slant, she walked right in. Never could get her in the stock trailer when we went to pick her up. After a dose of ACE, finally got her in the 2 horse trailer to get her home..... Never got her in the trailer friday. even put my elderly mare in, who patiently waited while I worked with Lil (new mare). She would go up to where her knees where right at the trailer. She would let me pick up one foot to put in the trailer. then all at once, her back feet would spread (and stomp my toes...TWICE) and she would rear straight up!. tried the trick's I've seen on TV.. Finally was loosing my patience. So I had to stop. She won that round. My farrier is great with getting troubled horses in a trailer. I'm going to ask him if he would spend some extra time with us when he comes out to trim (he's also my GF's husband, so she'll make him! lol)

It was definitely a beautiful weekend! Henny may not have thought so, though . He did great at the vet's. His feet are in pretty bad shape ): They said if a grown horse had his feet, they'd have already foundered. Poor boy, we'll be seeing the farrier every 4 weeks for a while to get everything corrected. He also really needed the acupuncture! In some places, his muscles flexed so much they bent the needles! We'll also be doing that again in 4 weeks to see if it helps him out. And to top everything off, he likes to bleed. After his gelding, he bled too much for their liking so he got to spend the night at the vet's. I brought him home yesterday and he is all kinds of swollen. He spent his first night out in the paddock since I moved stables and he was doing great when I checked on him last night and this morning. Poor thing just can't get a break sometimes! But the good news is we're stopping the steroids to see if he'll need to continue treatment or not! Yay for progress!

He didn't even want me looking down there! He says "I am never letting y'all get near my no-no place ever again!" I might cold hose him either at lunch time or tonight, depending on how warm it is. He's got dried blood all over his legs, so I'll definitely need to clean that up. :/

Bahaha, I feel so bad for him. He's been all over me "Mommy I hurt! Love me, hold me, pet me" He's been so affectionate the past couple days. I'm not sure if it's because we took his manhood away, or because he's hurting from getting it taken away. I do feel bad for him, but it's in his best interest!

Sorry to hear about Henny, glad though that he is still loving to be around you and not mad at you.

It' s been nice this weekend. Though I got some attitude from my young girl for the first time on Saturday, I worked her through it and my trainer said I did it right. My old gut pretended to have forgotten that you can trot over ground poles and jumped them. So I had to remind him, when they're on the ground, you can step over them. Silly horses.

On another note, I went to feed this morning. Brushed some hay off my young girls butt, thinking it looked tall. Put them in their stalls and walked to they hay bale to see how much they have eaten. Look back at them to realize, jeez, little girl had another growth spurt! Her butt is higher again. So my little girl, that was shorter than my 15.1 hand gelding when I first got her is probably taller than 16 hands (her last measurement) now. That's what I get for calling her little girl The farrier had mentioned she looked like she still had baby feet, so she might be younger than what I was told. We'll see where this goes...

we had this beautiful 2 year old double registered Paint/QH mare for our West Texas Rehab Telathon Auction. This girl was gorgeous and she already has some great training as well. She was valued at 3500.00 but only went for 2,025.00. I really wanted to put in a bid but just couldn't afford it for now.

She was already well over 15 hands and will easily top out over 16. She had good confirmation as well though I felt she was a bit long she was sturdy and even with good solid legs. I really wish I could have gotten her.

Oh well she found a good home so thats all that really matters.
