How We Met

I had begged my parents for a pony and so finally my dad took me to a horse and tack auction.While we waited for the tack to sell we looked at all the horses and ponys.After a couple hours they finally started selling the horses.When Dakota came into the arena I told my dad to bid for him.The bidding went up a ways until my dad and 1 other guy were the last bidders.the auctioneer stared at us waiting for my dad to bid.My dad thought about it for a minute and then he nodded.I could hardly believe it I finnally had a pony!

Trying to stay awake, today. I worked last night. When I got home, I let Sadie out of her corral and let her run. She ran for about 10 minutes or so. What a beautiful sight! Can't let her out to roam around until I get the door back on her hay shed. Monday's my next day off, so hoping to have it repaired by then.
Rick's picking up the 2 corral panels on his next days off. Holidays are busy where he works. He's working on his schedule days off. I have a 10 hour shift tomorrow, too. Austin did a great job of keeping Sadie's water trough clean. So thankful.
Much to do. Leaving love and a vote. Have a great weekend.

Such a long day, yesterday. So wonderful to be back home. It was hard leaving my mom. She's not herself, anymore. Becoming feeble.
Scruffy was happy to see me. It took my cats a few minutes. Sadie didn't seem to notice I'd been gone. They had Austin taking care of them, so they all were content. The rain here has made a mess of Sadie's corral. Can't let her out, because she tore on of the doors off of my hay shed, and I haven't had a chance to work on it. She tore down her mister, too.
Thanks for being there. Leaving love and a vote.

After work yesterday I got home and we had company so I only got out to the barn for feeding time and of course I sat out there until they finished eating. The rains moved in and all through the night we had very high winds and LOTS of rain. It was dark when I left for work this morning so I couldn't see the rain gauge and it was raining to hard to get a flashlight to go look. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday ✞

im so sorry that Dakota is suffering from heaves. yeah, ive heard that about round bales too. you have the same problem i do: it's going to be very inconvenient to feed one horse something different than the others when they all live outside together.
i have been feeding Freeway respiratory herbs to BJ and Cinnamon (you can find it on Amazon) and it seems to ease their symptoms about 1/3-1/2 better. the only other option the vet really had was steriods for 9-10 months out of the year, and that's so bad for them. the manufacturer of horse antihistamines has had it on backorder for nearly a year, and i think they've just quit making it, what a shame. i dont know if you could get it through another country or not.
well, good luck with his treatment. hope the new hay is a huge help for him

Yaaaay...finally got to ride two days in a row!! My husband rode Ace on Sunday and I rode on Monday and Tuesday. I was so excited and wanted to share with HC and I couldn't log on the past few days. What's up with that? Anyway I really enjoyed my rides. I posted six photos below (3 from each day). We are having some beautiful weather here, hope it holds out. Have a great weekend! Left votes all around.

Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days. I had to work on Monday (which is my day off). I wormed the horses on Tuesday. I got Susie's joint supplement in and gave her a double dose. She has been a little stiff since she ran out of her supplement. Wow...that was a lot of rain we had yesterday! Although like most of you, we needed it. Also having some cooler temps here. Enjoy the rest of your week. Left a vote.

Susie made August HOTM...yip yip hooray!! We will definitely celebrate with the herd. I told my husband Susie gets to do whatever she wants today because she is Queen. Thanks so much HC friends for all your votes and support. We could not have done it without you. Susie is happy to be your Top Horse for this month. I look forward to sharing more of Susie's escapades with our HC friends...because you know there will be more. lol

As you know, Susie survived all her tragic incidents and accidents. Through it all she has been a real trooper. She is the biggest horse in the pasture, but she allows the other horses to boss her around. She does anything you ask of her. She is such a sweet and playful mare. I call Susie my “million dollar” horse. One because of all the time, effort and expense we have invested in her, but the second and main reason is because nobody has enough money to buy Susie. She is worth the world to me. She has found her forever home. She will live here at our pasture for as long as she is alive and she will be laid to rest next to dear sweet Lollipop, when her time ends. She has touched my heart in a way that I can’t explain. I hope she has touched yours in some way through her story. The End.~~~~
Our HOTM run has come to an end. I have enjoyed sharing Susie’s story with you. Thanks to all my HC friends for your support. (Left a big thank you vote)

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)
