My catch up blog!

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!

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

Thank you so much for stopping by with congratulations for Eddie on his horse of the day win today. It sure was a nice surprise and a nice welcome back to HC. I haven't written properly on here for a long time. I'll post my catch up blog too in case you're interested.

It was pretty hot here today, about 100 degrees. So, instead of driving Eddie, I and a couple of crazy friends, went for a 3 mile walk this afternoon with Eddie, Pippin, and 5 dogs. We carried water and gave the dogs drinks every 15 minutes. Most of them loved it but they sure were dog tired when we got back.

It was great exercise for Pippin who can't trot yet for another 3 weeks of recovery. He's getting bored with the lack of adventure! Every time I go in his pen he squeals like a pig the entire time I'm in there! Silly boy has always been quite talkative.

Thanks again for the congratulations!

Leaving a vote for you.

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

Voted. I read my blogs, looks like most of us are really enjoying our equine pals this spring! Great blogs! And now we have a whole new weekend to enjoy more adventures, have fun :)

Trigger had a bath Wednesday evening, then he spent the night stalled. Trigger had his vet visit today. He loaded up nicely the first time, but he backed out before I got the butt bar up. The second time he stayed in there. Fancy ran around screaming bloody murder. I like to take them places without the other one so they can know that it is ok to be separated. They do not agree with that. LOL. When we returned, Fancy was filthy with sweat and dirt, from all of her running and screaming. When I turned Trigger loose, Fancy scolded him roughly for leaving her. After that, Fancy was nice to Trigger. I cannot believe how silly Fancy can be.

We really had a bad storm this evening. I was filling Fancy’s water tub when the storm began. The wind was exceptionally high and Fancy was playing in the water. I just put a tarp over Bandit’s (my Siberian Husky) kennel on his birthday, May 31, Well, the wind lifted that kennel and tossed it sideways into our chain link fence on that side of our yard. Bandit was a bit terrified, he ran into his dog house and stayed there until Cowboy and I got his kennel back in place. Then I took that tarp off. The wind did blow harder, and I was thankful the kennel stayed on the ground for the remainder of the storm. As we worked on the kennel, Fancy ran crazy then went to eat hay. I guess all the running wild and crazy did work up an appetite. Trigger did not seem to really care that the wind was up. He did join Fancy munching hay in the rain though.

It was amazing to see huge trees swaying wildly, almost touching the ground. It was beautiful and frightful at the same time. I hardly ever see this because I am usually in the house when the storms come up. I was glad when the storm was over and things were peaceful again.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: ‘Everyone loves a good, wet, slobbery kiss.’

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Phrase of the day: RECENTLY VETTED: someone else found something really wrong with this horse.


Have a peaceful and safe night ✞
Love from Fancy & Frances ♥
