I have nothing exciting to report, which at this point I am assuming that is a good thing. Eli FINALLY got to go outside for a little bit because the round pen finally dried out. His stitches can't get wet, and I don't think he should have too much room because I DO NOT want … Continue reading Wrapping and Stitches Update
Eli managed to cut his left hind in his stall somehow, so he got stitches on Monday. Wednesday was the day to change the wrap. Such innocence ... Eli was actually very good about it, and didn't seem overly sore or sensitive and didn't try to kick me even once. So, yay? Anyway ... Please … Continue reading I Won’t Quit My Day Job
It's finally sweater weather here in Texas! Maybe even a little too cold for me, but Conrad looks ready for winter.
The benefit of today is that it's Tuesday. Yesterday was a doozy. I knew going in to Monday that I would be at work until very late, so I had asked a working student to hand walk Eli (it was raining on Monday so no turn out) and give him one of his supplements that … Continue reading Monday, Monday
Winter came by last night and seems to be hanging around. I don't like it, but I'm not unprepared for it. First of all, Winter Eli finally showed up last night and I can't blame him. We walked a little bit last night, but I could tell getting a decent trot wasn't going to happen … Continue reading Layer Up
Conrad had a rough Thursday last week. I made him a vet appointment because recently he developed a lumpy spot behind his right shoulder and it was making me nervous. I know dogs can get benign fatty tumors, but I didn't really want to guess at that. He doesn't really like being at the vet … Continue reading Weenie Wednesday: Bill of Health
Regardless of why, Eli sprouted an extra fluffy (for him) winter coat this year. Very inconvenient, especially in Texas. I had not ever body clipped him and the entire time I have known the horse, he has not been body clipped. While Eli's ground manners have improved over the years by leaps and bounds, he … Continue reading Wahl KM10 Clippers Review
I really wondered whether Eli would be okay with the whole body clipping thing. I had never body clipped him before, but he got shaggy early on this fall, and considering the high today is supposed to be in the 80s, the winter coat had to go. He's okay for clipping his whiskers and his … Continue reading That Was Easy
I have been loving the Instagram question templates just like everyone else, but Amanda had the genius idea of blogging the questions, so us slow people can actually read and provide good answers. Why horses? Why not a sane sport, like soccer or softball or curling? I am convinced there is some gene mutation that … Continue reading 25 Questions
