Back to Normalacy

It's been 4 days since Loretta had her teeth floated. And so far, she has been back to herself. No agitation or irritation symptoms. I am keeping my fingers crossed it wasn't colic or ulcers and that getting her mouth on the right track helped her out. Time will tell.....


 Thank you Ranch Girl, for bringing me back my sweetheart!!

 Awwww.... (would have been a cute photo had the hot wire tape not been in the middle of it!)


My roany pony happy to be back home and nibbling.......

 My "girls" are ready to go out and help me feed!!

Lizzy loves to get the old muck boot belly rub!

In other news, we had another horse colic the other night. Ranch Boy's mother's most favorite horse! We went out to feed at dark and this one laid down next to the hay breathing heavily. Catching him (amongst 30 other horses) was not easy but we got him hauled in from pasture and called out the vet.



Luckily this handsome Andalusian gelding just had some gas and minor dehydration and is on the mend. He is enjoying his bran mashes!

Have a good rest of the week everyone!!

Colic, or similar symptoms still stike fear into my heart in a big way . while I have been able to help many horses over the years , with gas or spasmodic colics here, I have also seen when a colic goes bad and there is nothing I can think of more devastating to see your horse go through . So glad you caught the big fella , (he looks like a good one) in time , and Sending up good thoughts and prayers that little Lorretta will be fine now

WHAT is all that white stuff on the ground?! I am hoping hoping hoping we get some next week. The horses are too cute nuzzling each other like that. I also didn't realize Lizzie would stay that small. She's an adorable scruffy little gal! That white horse is a beauty too!
