It’s been a full week so it was time for Jez’s recheck. Dr Engle came out since he was the vet on call when we had our injury. Hes stuck with us for this injury! The plan was to unwrap her, cut the dead skin flap and put her back into regular turn out and […]

Welcome home ponies

It started like any other morning. 7:30 Am and i’m out at the barn to feed. There was a freeze over night and the grass was white. Damn it! My weather app didn’t say below freezing. Luckily my ponies are pretty fuzzy already. I threw some hay into the paddock and went to prepare their […]

As i’m sure its obvious to anyone paying attention by now, i’m taking a blogging break.

posted by on Life with Circe, OTTB, Vet

The last month or so has been hard. Harder on The Circe Effect than me but hard none the less. Her lameness issues were not progressing how anyone hoped they would. To add insult to injury she came up lame on the right hind a week ago with stocking up in both hinds. The farrier, […]

posted by on Barn tales, Life with Circe, Life with Jezebel, OTTB

The week has been long and hot and not a ton is going on.  Both ponies are still out of work. Jezebel is still being treated for ulcers, shes not as reactive when palpated and is much less cranky in general. Sammy did take her on a 20 min how is she feeling ride and […]

Peas in a pod
