It was kinda on a whim. I wasn’t out shopping for another horse when Bonnie at After The Races (where i got Jezebel) posted that she had a couple horses coming back to her, no room for them and needed them placed/housed/fostered. For some reason I picked up the phone and made the call. Bonnie […]

Most mornings she gets it all the way off…. she really has a knack for making me hike out into the field and look for it. I got to the barn early enough the other day to see her fly mask removal task in process. Clever pony!

When Circe came up lame a week and a half ago and i saw the bruise, I put her on rest and waited it out to see if it would manifest into an abscess or get better. A week went by and it didn’t get better. The lameness did get a little more pronounced but […]
