Thank you! He is quite the character! Momma is sweet as can be just very nervous and shy, still undergoing evaluations, glad I was able to see her in person! She's quite the pretty little mare!

Thanks! He's super fluffy! And incredibly soft!

Didnt do too much with him today, just checked to make sure he hasnt started to become a man yet lol. I called the vet today, $110 for a gelding, granted he's not a cryptochid so fingers crossed he isnt! Getting to visit the vet tomorrow and check it out, not for anything good, time for our 6yr old pitbull to be put to sleep sadly. She had ivermectin poisoning after I wormed Rodeo, and she ate his manure almost 4yrs ago, had some pretty bad seizures, thought we were going to lose her but she pushed through it and came out fine, or so we thought, a year later she had vertigo, was only for a few months and she was fine after that, we moved to MT 5 weeks ago or so now, and shes losing weight like crazy, cant stop using the bathroom in the house, shes still pretty active but at this point, shes getting 10 cups of food a day and losing weight faster than I can put it on her, we've been talking about having her pts for a while now, but we came to the decision this morning that it is time, we're going to give her a good meal tonight and things like that but we feel its the best for her.

It was warmer today! Close to 50 F! The wind was pretty bad but the kids have been dying to go outside and see Squishy, so we went out lol. Squishy was wide eyed and staring at the kids as if they were some sort of monster, he was a little stand offish at first but since Rodeo was sucking up all the attention, he must have figured he'd survive the little monsters as well. He was awesome! Loved every second the kids gave him, and of course they loved it, gave him hugs and kisses....super cute, but since my husband is at work and I was worried about my kids being too obnoxious for him, of course I didnt bring the camera :( About time to start having my daughter come out with me and play with him a bit, she's dying to "train" him haha

Have an appointment for Ms Bailey at 4pm today, Ive been so back and fourth if its actually the right time or not for her but when I woke up this morning, she had used the bathroom in the crate, again, and it was pretty bloody and she just didnt look like she felt real awesome. I called my vet from NC who had seen her after her seizures a few years back and picked their brain for a few minutes, told them all her symptoms, weight loss, trouble swallowing, vertigo, loss of balance, seizures have been coming back, diarrhea, and she said sounds like a pretty good case of brain tumor/cancer. Of course to know for sure I could get testing done, chemo and radiation would be the treatment, I just dont think she's up for it and we def cant afford it sadly. As sad as we are, we are just happy to get her out of being in pain!

So sorry about your Ms Bailey. Never easy, even when we know it is the right/best thing to do for them.
Have to say how much I enjoy this thread! Squishy is like a real come to life stuffed animal! Will be checking in for developments and lots and lots of pictures!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Thank you! Of course it was even more difficult when she was happy as can be when we got to the vets, made me rethink my decision a bit but I truly know if was the right decision for her, she was always on the heavier side, so when she started losing weight so drastically, I knew it was serious :(

That is an awesome way to describe him! He really is like a stuffed animal! And yes, there will probably be more photos than anyone wants to see but I can say after I made Rodeo's, i have looked back quite often and find it a lot of fun to read back, so much that Ive forgotten about!

Following along...Mr. Squishy is adorable! Can't wait to see what the little guy looks like under all that hair! Reminds me of an angora rabbit

The picture with your DD is just precious, brought tears to my eyes

So sorry about your poor Ms. Bailey, she was suffering but still so hard to let go

Thank you! Same! Very good description! I keep trying to think of another horse Ive seen with as much hair as him and cannot think of any! And thank you! Was def harder than I thought, she was always quite attached to my husband, but it was quite difficult! I dont regret it, but very strange only having 1 dog as I havent had just a single dog since I cant even remember!

Aww, that's so cute! Happy to hear he was good with the kiddos, I'm sure he was happy to be around people around his size! I'm sure your daughter will love that! What a good boy he is!

I have to say too, he really does look like a stuffed animal. He is just so darn cute and fluffy.

I'm so sorry about Ms. Bailey. Cancer is horrible and we had to put our dog down because of it. It's never easy to do, but she will no longer be in pain. Hugs to you.

Ride more, worry less.

Walked down to see Rodeo and Squishy with the kids, Squishy was much less afraid compared to yesterday. As much as it sucks having the kids with me at times (around the horses), I think its really good for them to be around Squishy as much as possible. I brought the camera down with me! Yay! I wasnt planning on doing anything with Squishy today but my husband ended up getting home while we were outside so I ended up playing with him quite a bit. My daughter wanted to help as well as my son, so basically had hands all over him and kids around every where. My daughter brushed him and generally just spent time around him, my son is pretty clumsy so it was a really good day for desensitizing Squishy to the kids.

While my daughter was brushing him, my son was holding the lead rope, and i was picking up all his feet, messing with his ears, eyes, mouth, nose, belly, legs, tail, lol, literally every spot on the poor guy has been touched Haha....this was good though, as I made him stand still in one spot the whole time so he did really well with that, overall a good day. Just need to lead up to where my daughter is doing more things with him but itll come with time! Little guy has only been here for 2 weeks or so
