I have an update on Zeke. He has left my farm. Currently, he is going somewhere as a "Very Pretty Pasture Puff". If he gets out of hand or things don't work out he will come back to me. I have worked with him, bathed him, saddled, drove, sat on him, and worked on his … Continue reading Zeke. The Reality of Things.
So let's say Zeke will not be living with Rev. They cannot peacefully safely cohabitate. Which is super inconvenient. Regardless they both got plenty of work today. Rev did excellent as always and was incredibly responsive to voice commands and just generally soft. On a better note, Rev modeling his new gear. How does anyone attach … Continue reading Zeke and Rev. BFFs ForNever.
Today I went out and gave semi-annual vaccinations. Here in the Swamp we have a lot of mosquitoes. All year. Also, vaccinations are required before and after breeding season etc. The ponies also got Ivermectin. I went out and gave shots and dewormers first to Skye and when I was done I didn't even have … Continue reading One Reason I Love Rev.
Zohan was finally caught today. Sometimes when you get a horse like this it's a challenge. This is the last stop for Zohan so he needs to get it worked out. There are no other options for him through no fault of his own. I've heard a variety of stories and 'facts' about him. The … Continue reading Zohan’s Story. I Think I May Call Him Zeke.
First, let me begin with, Zohan will probably be undergoing a name change. It will probably be Crazypants Craig or Shithead Fred for a while. On the other hand, I named Remus and he's a little cutie. Remus is a little wild but he's still cute. I'm told Zohan is … Continue reading Meet Zohan and Remus.
I have been making a solid effort to pare down my farming and work activities so that I can focus more on my horse. I have sold all but one heifer that will be kept as the family milk cow. I bought a bull for her and he will be shipped in hopefully later this week. … Continue reading Raining, Conditioning, Maintenance, and More Fat Loot.
So like I was saying in the last post, Miss Faar colicked pretty badly last week. Our weather here has been pretty chilly at night and high 90's during the day and insane humidity. I went out to feed for the day earlier than usual because I had clients scheduled early that day. At about 5am … Continue reading Faar Filly: The Great Tummy Ache
My hubby has always gotten me Mother's Day presents because of our fur children and I get him Father's Day gifts too. We also use it as an excuse to go somewhere and eat a steak and have delicious beer. This past Monday Hubby told me to go ahead and order some stuff that I … Continue reading Fat Loot
I worked Rev a little yesterday. More mental than physical. His breeding season is coming to a close and today he helped me water my garden and other plants. This may sound insane but he had to do it with my hubby's mare following us around(she lives in the yard and mows it). We also … Continue reading Preparing Mentally.
Basically, we bought a horse trailer that needs a lot of work. We have a stock trailer that would be easily useable for Rev and we have hauled him in it many times. I just wanted a trailer that's smaller and more "Horsai" and more of a home away from home. So after my big … Continue reading The Endurance Rig.
