don't forget to vote for Deacon on his page!
♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

What type of natural horsemanship do you do? Do you follow someone? My aunt turned me onto Clinton Anderson and the results have been nothing but amazing on my mare :) Hope your bus ride goes well and leaving your big boy a vote! Hugs, Kat and Dee Dee.

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
Dino is so handsome and your profile picture is just beautiful ☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Glad you got in a ride. Finished the fencing for the calves yesterday - so far they have stayed put. Started raining a little after noon today, and rain is forecast all week. Who wants to ride, anyway? Would much rather wade thru the mud, LOL!

I'm hoping to talk to our Dr. C today, Charlie is OK as long as he is on the high dose of ulcer meds, I'm making small changes in his feed program, adding thing to help with is hind gut digestion and taking away grains which I have learned are very hard on their tummy's. Marion has been a huge support, when i feel like I'm loosing it, she picks me back up. I can't explain how this is a constant worry, I just want him well again. Marion also suggested that the stall kicking may be a symptom of the ulcers? could be...Love Donna Lee

yes, sorting out the gifts took longer than i expected, and also revealed that i have more shopping to do than i thought. sigh.
well, it was pretty yesterday, so i chucked the to-do list and went for a short ride. while i was unsaddling, i remembered i was supposed to take my sister in law somewhere and i was late. oh well. got that worked in, but i probably wouldnt have ridden if i had remembered that appointment. talk about selective memory, haha. you know, its pretty again today...

Dr. C should b home tomorrow, OMG I have had such a stressful week without him. Charlie had one mild episode on Thursday evening, but we were able to stop it with more ulcer meds. he is back on the max amount....I found a great website with some home remedies for diet. I am making feed changes myself, since the nutritionists have been NO HELP, thank you very much. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

oi! yes, that is hard on the bank account to have a bunch of birthdays right around Christmas. most of my family's is in the fall, so i have a little recovery time, but not a lot. one of the things on my to-do list today is to sort through Christmas presents and see what i do and dont have. hope all's well with you and your boys. have a great friday.

Yep, all kinds of monsters out there. Horse poop, cow poop, and an especially scary milkweed plant in the middle of the trail. Never know what they will take exception too. Luckily, we have never encountered the leaf monster (at least not yet).

Hi Dino! I'm sure they are completely happy with their shelter that you created for them. I wish I could give Koot a pasture life. I bet he would love that so much. He's in a really good sized stall right next to one of his horse buddies and they have a cover that goes almost the entire length of the back of their stalls so it's nice but the ground is uneven so water puddles sometimes. We are expecting more rain on Friday so I'll most likely get Koot out Thursday and then we'll see about this weekend depending on how muddy everything is. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Dino, I hope you had a great weekend! Ya Koot is super fluffy but we normally only get rain from about December-February so it's never too horribly bad. I don't have a barn for him, just an outdoor corral and a shelter, but he's fine with it. He's not a huge fan of the mud but he deals with it lol. Koot got new shoes on Saturday and then I turned him out for a bit and he ran a little but wasn't very interested. I'll be taking him out again on Tuesday. Voted! XOXO Danya and Koot

I had a lesson yesterday morning. We worked on Rose rounding and some on my position. When Rose rounds, it feels cool:) It was a good lesson.
Last night was my awards dinner for my playday club. My last night as sweetheart. I got reserve in my group and got a pretty red halter. We also got a carrot mineral block. It was a good, but long night:)

im dying laughing at your description of Dino spooking. the Quarter Horses are bred to be quick on cows, so they can be plugging along with their heads down, and be heading the opposite direction with no warning if something spooks them. they are tough to ride in a spook, which is why i hate spooking so much.
glad your midpoint is almost finished. hope you get a rest and a lot of horse time over the holidays.

I had to work yesterday, but it was 7 hours of OT, yipee.

Yes, they were very naughty calves. Should have the fencing done in a week or so depending on the weather. Have about 600' where posts have to reset, and some replaced, then will put up heavy duty field fencing. Then a few more places to patch. 50-60's the next few days, at least it's nice weather to work in outside.

Baby showers are fun!
Family finally left, and yes, it can be a strain when there are dietary restrictions that I'm not used to dealing with. One good thing I did was for my birthday (in October) was ask for pizza when they came for a visit so I got 1 time off from cooking!
We have 25 acres here besides our 5 we sit on, surrounded by crops. My cousins rent it from us until we expand. Hope to add to our horses and chickens someday-cows, sheep, maybe nanny goats, but no pigs, lol!
Husband got a deer day after Thanksgiving. Shot it in self-defense he said! He was on the ground and it was heading straight at him, hauling! I told him maybe he should've washed his gear in doe pee like he did last year (accidently!) coz he had a grandpa of a deer (18+ pointer)breathing on his neck through the brush! He didn't find that funny for some reason!

Why, you are very welcome. Warm here today at near 80. Picked up more fencing - we are working at re-fencing the 5 acre pasture for the 3 calves, since they decided to go visit the neighbors. They are up in a pipe pen until we get it done.

Yes, they are the "wee" bells. Found mine at MyHorseBling.com, also explains how to use them, measure for them and get the horse used to them. You could try stringing some bells and attaching them to the mane near the withers or on the front of the saddle, or as one lady did, to an old breastcollar. Have been enjoying riding to the sound of bells, and I think Cisco enjoys them, too.

Still have family here from FL. Yesterday we helped them in cleaning up property in IL. Still a lot to do there.
I picked up horse vacs from the vet and gave them their shots. Ella flinched causing me to withdraw the needle, so had to stick her twice lol.
Need to get my house cleaned-never did finish fall deep cleaning! Seems like not enough minutes in the day any more. One good thing is that I'm almost done Christmas shopping! Yay! Now about that tree...

I know this is a tough time of year for folks in uni. My niece isn't finding time to ride either, all she's doing is work and studying. Hang in there.
All's well here. BJs herbs came yesterday, but I might not start them until spring because he is doing so much better in the winter; I won't know if the herbs are working or not and they are kind of expensive. I rode him for the first time in over a week yesterday and it was wonderful to be on. We just did a lazy ride in the field next door.
Hope Dino is doing well too and that these last days of this semester go well.

It was a 4 hr obstacle clinic.
Wonderful, wonderful day at the clinic. Cisco went from being nearly unridable a week and a half ago to being nearly perfect - still wouldn't go thru the water box, and he did get a little hyper at the last canter. Everyone loved the beads, don't know if they really have a calming effect or we were just having a really good day. He can be such a joy to ride!
