How are you doing? I am going to write a pure copy and paste message because I am so far behind with my HC blogs that you wouldn't believe it.

A lot has happened since I last blogged properly on here and I can't promise to be on as much as I would like.

Eddie has settled in really well. He and Pippin are great friends but boys will be boys and because of their giant size difference, 2000lbs vs 200lbs, they cannot be alone in the same field. So, Eddie has a pen within Pippin's huge day pen and they get at each other through the fence.

Eddie is the tall silent type and his previous owner has never heard him make a noise. Well, now that he's here he whinnies if we take Pippin for a walk and leave him behind. He nickers low and sweetly when Pippin is put in the pen near him. They are cute together.

We've had a couple of tough moments, health-wise, with both of them. Eddie had several episodes of choke earlier this year leading up to a major case which almost killed him. The vet actually thought he wouldn't make it and we were discussing the dreaded topic of carcass disposal…

Well, the long and short of it is, he's completely and absolutely healthy and looks the best he's ever looked. He's fit and shiny and has a spring in his step. That is, when he's not sleep walking which he'll do on a hot day like today.

3 weeks ago Pippin had surgery for the removal of 2 large enteroliths from his colon. They weigh about 3lbs and I've kept them as souvenirs. He's on the road to recovery and is also doing super well.

For a couple of months he was rapidly going downhill and we couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. Using a portable x-ray the vet discovered the stones. They are so huge that she actually screamed when spotted them on the radiograph. It's a wonder that he was still eating and pooping fine. Not sure how that was even possible.

Anyway, that's what's up here. I will try (really I will!) to write more often.

I hope you had a great weekend! Leaving a vote.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

She will be on Facebook though for those who are friends with her! Dropping into the 40’s to mid 30’s today believe it or not! In Texas-yes that is unheard of this time of year.

Hi Thomas! So sorry it's been so long since I was online! I should be able to get online more now that tax season is over. Last week tax season ended, but my kitty also got really sick and ending up passing away on 4/20/13 so it's been a pretty tough week :( can't wait to get to talking with my HC friends again! I hope you have a nice weekend! Koot got his yearly shots this morning and was a great boy for the vet as always :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

HELLO! Hope you are enjoying spring! So much has happened with everyone!
Our club enjoyed a delightful dressage presentation Tuesday evening! I am still excited about that. I have been admiring my flower garden while Fancy grazes in the yard.
Fancy is ok now and bossing poor Trigger with all of her might. I am tons better, still experiencing some physical limitations. I am so ready to start working on our driving lessons. Cowboy and I assembled our easy entry horse cart about one year before I ever got Fancy and we have never used it. One of the tires went flat just sitting in the outbuilding. I have that pumped up now, so when Fancy & I are ready that cart will be ready!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
“A good rider can hear his horse speak to him. A great rider can hear his horse whisper. But a bad rider won't hear his horse even if it screams at him!” (unknown)

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: Sacking out - A condition caused by Sleeping Sickness (see below). The state of deep sleep a mare owner will be in at the time a mare actually goes into labor and foals.
Sleeping Sickness - A disease peculiar to mare owners while waiting for their mares to foal. Caused by nights of lost sleep, symptoms include irritability, red baggy eyes and a zombie-like waking state. Can last several weeks.

Have a peaceful nights rest ✞

Congratulations on your HOTD win ☆
Hi! Here is a mid week vote from Fancy and our herd!
I added a pic of Fancy's heel injury at the bottom of our page. She is out of the stall leaping, bucking, & running hard!
I think Trigger wants Fancy back in the stall. She is directing his every move, even if he can eat. Poor guy. Trigger gained weight while Fancy was in the stall. If he loses any weight, I will have to separate them so he can have some peace.

Depending on days I am physically able, I will ground drive Fancy and let her pull some things. I am excited for this!

Last Saturday my brothers rode Buttercup and Goldie. I got to ride Buttercup. Buttercup kept trying to follow my brother and she would not listen to me. She wanted to have a temper tantrum, so my brother lead her around so I could ride here. I felt like a little kid. But at least I got to ride. LOL.

I wanted to ride Goldie, but after I saw her behavior, I was fearful for my brother to ride her. Goldie is dangerously buddy sour, I tried to hold the reins so he could tack her up. But she pushes you with her body and neck and she will not listen to instruction. She will turn her butt to push you and try to run past you. I think that means she will kick if she wants too. I had to ask Buttercup's owner (my other brother) to hold Goldie because, Goldie made my wrists hurt. I don't want to ride Goldie anymore. She needs some schooling! My brother had a time getting on her but when he was finally on her, they started out rough until she was under her buddy. He had to keep them two together so he could hope for a peaceful ride.

Have a lovely HUMP-DAY
Love from our horsey family to yours ♥
