How We Met

Six years ago, when I finally persuaded my parents to buy a horse, it was between him and an appaloosa mare, Bella. We bought her, but then 3 years later, his owner convinced us to buy him, too. He was left alone to eat all day every day for about 5 years and hadn't been ridden since then, so he's a work in progress, but he's my boy. He's actually a quarter horse/appaloosa cross, but more appy than quarter horse. Yep, he's my boy. :-).

Hey everybody!
The vet came out today and did the vaccinations and teeth. Even after sedation, my stubborn appaloosa refused to hold still for the floating, so the vet had to give him so much sedation he nearly fell over.

Come visit me, Dashing Irish.

SUSIE AND GYPSY ARE SPORTING THEIR WINTER BLANKETS! GYPSY HAD A BLANKET THAT WAS GIVEN TO US, BUT WE HAD TO MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP TO GET SUSIE A NEW BLANKET. THEY WERE BOTH SHIVERING, IT WAS SO COLD. LOLLI AND LUCKY ARE IN A SMALLER PASTURE WITH A BARN WITH A ROUND BALE OF HAY IN IT. THEY ARE STAYING WARM. NEXT WEEK WE ARE EXPECTING WARMER WEATHER! HOPEFULLY WE CAN PACK THE BLANKETS UP TILL NEXT WINTER! I PLAN ON GETTING 3 MORE NEW BLANKETS FOR NEXT YEAR! LEAVING A VOTE.

Hey there! It is really COOOOOOOLD here down south! We are not use to this at all! We had rain and ice yesterday and cars were getting into so many wrecks that they had to close the highway down. lol Can you believe that? The horses are fine except for Gypsy, she had the shakes so we had to blanket her yesterday. They are getting plenty hay to help keep them warm. Can't wait till spring!!!! Left a vote.
