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.

Deacon 237272 IS running Jan 2015 HOTM
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

Whiskey & I hauled out to Mccown and had a nice small ride. We rode the day riding parking/camping area then rode to the bigger horse camping area. No one was there it was totally empty! We enjoy it. I used my water rake and Whiskey looked so beautiful after his bath. We saw deer and turkey, so peaceful there surrounded by nature =)

★ extremely busy today so I hope I don’t miss anyone, if I do I apologize! Saturday I had a nice ride on Deacon at the lake. Bill & Amber rode with us. Lots of people were there but we rode in different area’s then the regular public. Sunday I took a small 10 minute bareback ride on Whiskey. The rest of Sunday we had company. Sunday night through today we have had rain; I believe our total is right at 2 ½ now. Very muddy! I Work today and tomorrow, off work Friday. Hoping to de-mud my horses on Friday but have to work the weekend. Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote ♡

★ Whiskey’s xrays were good! He will have the wedge shoes reset on June 2nd, then 6 weeks later set one more time. The wedge shoes help his hooves have more blood flow at the bottom. He still is not able to have total turn out because off the spring grass growth has too much sugar in it. All easy keepers need to follow this method I have learned, just passing on what Doc Edwards told me. I was informed that I need to be careful in the fall from Oct. to around Dec. if we have a lot of rain. I can start riding at a walk, no hard work outs. I will start and increase times little by little. Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers!

Deacon & I met up with Cisco & Cheryl at Mccown Lake Whitney yesterday. We had a blast! It is so beautiful out there. We were the only one’s there and the peace and quiet along with some good riding, it was perfect!!! Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote ♡

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"To understand the soul of a horse is the closest human beings can come to knowing perfection." (Author Unknown)

HI! Have a great night and a vote.

I rode today! Yeehaa! LOL
I tried out a lightweight saddle because my saddle is hard to lift now. I did not like the lightweight. But I think I can get used to it. I will change the girth and I might just like it. I have to test it out before vacation is over so my husband can tighten the saddle for me.

I have figured Fatima out. She acts like Trigger used to act. Now Trigger comes to us and is so sweet. It is so irritating to me when she turns and walks off when ever I want her. But long as you don't have a lead or halter you have to beat her out of your face.

Fancy waits for me at the gate when I go out. I just love my little mare.

Sorry I was offline for a while. My husband is on vacation. I just don't have the gumption I used to have. After doing clean up of limbs and debris in our yard, my hands were swollen and I was so tuckered out. We also had to replace some tin on the roof of Fancy's stall, that blew off during the storms. I am out side a lot more now. I will be online often as I am able.
I really hope I can ride some more.

Good Night :)

☆ extremely windy yesterday-WOW…so, I haltered the boys & fly sprayed, cleaned hoofs and checked them out good. Turned Deacon & Rocket out and Whiskey stayed in the home paddock area where the round bale and barn is. It is like a dry lot, no grass growing and what grass is there are dried up! Cliff is adding 8’ to the barn toward the west so I helped him with that. It will increase the shade in our barn for the horses & create better coverage in the winter. Got to love a man that will continue to help me with the horse projects!!! Whinnies, love & hugs
