another horsey escape but with something a tad fishy

sam got and went over to see Chad. cHAD WAS NOT AMUSED. he called the cops we tretreived and found a tree fallen onto the eltric fence knocking it down in a section so sam was able to just walk out.

what knocked the tree down is something of a mystery

bad news from the vet....

Aeolae is not healing up right after some surgery unless this changes the only humane thing to do will be to put her down

Samwise the lucky is healing from his problems and so we will have one fit horse

looking at 2 horses

we made it through the winter but what now...I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by the pair of them and the pressure of the affection they give is a big deal like how could I consider anything but keeping them

every new horse owner goes through this I guess or do they?

I love my horses and they love me but they are BIG

Aeolae needs some meds first you hide the powdered horse pill in molassas then feed in some grain and give sweet feed tedious but she needs it

Aolea was a limping a bit she will need a minor surgery in the spring but should be fine after that. it could be done now if I could take to wisconsin but instated we have a mild meds for her and then do the surgery here in a couple of months

A dya with the fairer

had a long day yesterday with the horses. the fairer came ( fairer is the guys or gal takes care of hoofs for the horse folk in the readership) and did his thing with the guys took a while a new to them fairer, and the horses have not been to see one as often as they should have in the past it took a while but no one got hurt and the horses seem to feel better but the people (us) are beat. Aeolae was a realy good horse although she was VERY dubious about the whole however
