My dad is taking my neice and great nephew to see Kit's daddy tomorrow, I'm going to go. I never got any good pics of him, so hopefully I can tomorrow. Then they want to ride, so I'll saddle Lil up and let them ride in the arena. That way if she decides to be silly (which she never has for me yet...knock on wood) she won't go far, being closed in there. I may saddle up Cat to see if she'll buck me off or not.. She hasn't been ridden in a year and a half... still don't know if she'll be able to be ridden or not, until the vet checks out her foot, since she still limps on it. I won't ride her hard, just around the arena to see what she'll do, but if it looks like it's hurting her, I'll stop. Tried to upload some pics of Kit I took this pm, but they are too "big" to upload here. So, you'll have to see them on FB if you want to see them... never mind, I figured out how to resize the, so I'll post more in a bit
Scary, KC! If stuff was coming out of his nose, it sounds like he was aspirating too. Henny choked twice in one week last year. I was so freaked out I was crying LOL. My dad and I were able to massage his throat to get the blockage out, which he promptly coughed up on me. Never have I been so happy to be spit up on! Then he just went back to eating like it was no big deal.
There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh
Nice pics Nu!
CC hope your back gets better soon.
KC I don't envy all your driving around... sounds like you are covering a lot of distance.
I've begun my summer work schedule and am adjusting. Meanwhile my colt has been bratty. He gets nippy and pushy when his herd changes and with new horses around, and moving has resulted in the same behavior. Am going to work with him every morning and hope to have a saddle on him by the end of the summer. I won't be the first to ride him though! That will be one of the younger guys ha ha.
Happy 4th of July y'all! Everyone have a great time and stay safe:)
On another note, we endes up taking my friends horse to the vet last night. The first vet cleared thw blockage to his stomach. We went to dinner came back and he was in the exact spot she left him. So he spent the night at the vets office sue to colic.... Posted via Mobile Device
Poor horse! I hope it will be ok - don't you love how horses tend to need vet care on holidays or weekends or during the middle of the night when the clinic isn't working normal hours so every visit has an extra emergency fee?
Didn't they read the book? THey are only supposed to get sick M-F 8-5.
