    5 days earlier: And Thursday. UGH, vet is coming Friday morning and I hope we can get a freekin' HANDLE on this! The swelling and edema is getting worse. I've cold-hosed, hot-toweled and mineral-oiled inside his sheath. I just want him to be comfortable and be better. I'll let y'all know what the vet says after she sees him.
  3. Today

    The vwet heavy snow that they are forecasting, nothing moves it very well, I guess a person can only wait & see what does happen & go from there. I did make room foe more today, but don't know that I made enough room. Take Care All, PD

    PD the detour is supposed to come this weekend. Projected two day heatwave with temps in the 30's along with more snow. A friend said the last two winters reminds him of the snow we used to get in the 80's. Our truck is great for moving snow but they are not build for piling the crud. Can only push it so much.

    RRW, Just came in from outside, been working on a snow relocation most of the AM, trying to figure out where to put it. I also cleaned out my neighbor this AM , trying to clean out his driveway, was like a jigsaw puzzle, as he had his cars parked here & there & in the way. The thing he has much better equipment to clean out his driveway than I do, but he sits & waits on me. or he just does care ine or the other. At least he can move around as bit now. I got about 6 inches of snow, but my old tractor has really had a work out lately.. Spring is coming, but I think it is going to get detoured before it arrives. Take Care All, PD

    Got some of that white stuff the night before last. Woke up to a winter wonderland. Thank goodness I didnt have to work. The 60 degree day today will melt it all away for sure.

    Any takers for snow? All you have to do is come up, pick your pile & shovel into the back of you truck or trailer. Another 10in yesterday & more on the way this weekend. Hard to believe that all we got came in a 5? week period. With a second year of getting dumped on late winter hubby now has the justification for getting a new/er frontend loader. That way he can push the banks further into the yard as we are already at the brink of how much the truck is able to push.

    I had finished Sleeping Beauties by Steven & Owen King. Was about the women across the world going to sleep. I really enjoyed it & sure made you think of what the world would be with no women only men.

    I gave Mr. Butters the soaked alfalfa cubes last night and the night before. He didn't finish them and I figured here we go with Mr. Picky pants again. Tonight Im happy to say he licked his bowl clean. Maybe it was the time I spent making sure every cube was soaked and seperated. Yep, every last cube. Thats ok though as long as he eats it. Supposed to get some winter weather in tonight. Ice, some snow, freezing rain. Glad I dont have to work tomorrow. Anyone read any good books lately? I just finished "Under the Trestle" about the 1980 murder of a local college student and Virginias first no body murder trial. It was extremely interesting, and I highly recommend it. Spoiler alert..the jerk is still doing life and still won't tell where the body is. I searched all over town today for the next book I want to read "One day she'll darken" by Fauna Hodel. No library or Barnes and Noble had it. Looks like Ill be getting it off ebay and then donating to my little local library when Im done.

    Thanks for defining the one being a prego pony. Conformation requirements/standard for minis is ROUND.
  17. Xmas update

    Thanks. I'm not quite cut out for girly modelling..... Pulling nice faces is hard ha. Solo is still out and about slowly. He's doing some tricks in the clinics I do as the 'starter' horse and learnt bow and jambette and is halfway to lying down. He won't do anymore 'interesting' tricks till he's older though. He had a little jump yesterday with Sparkles, schooled him at liberty whilst my friend rode Sparks. He's only jumped a handful of times so still learning but he's got a nice little pop in him and takes confidence off Sparks. He got too confident and wanted to be lead horse by the end of it.

    Thanks for sharing pics of Sage - she looks great! Hope you can squeeze in some riding time - it's good therapy for busy nursing student!!

    Thank you RailroadWoman, it's definitely hard to believe she's that old. I have to stop and think if she's really 12 or not lol Thank you Jubal, she's much slimmer. My friend liked to keep her well fed, even though I said she's an easy keeper and doesn't need the extra food. Thank you QueenBAW, it gets a little hectic with school but it'll be worth it next May when I'm finished. I'll have to find another college to finish up the BA but at least the majority of it will be done. Sadly, this is the first set of pictures I've taken of Sage. I usually take quite a few pictures of her. She's good for stress relief!

    Ooo what a pretty girl!!! Nice saddle too! Good luck with nursing school, dont forget to take a little time for yourself.
  23. Just a Quick Hello (Sage Pictures)

    She doesn't look a bit older but she does look a bit slimmer. Still beautiful!
  24. Just a Quick Hello (Sage Pictures)

    Have always loved seeing pic of your girl. Hard to believe its been 12 hrs since the first pic.
  25. Just a Quick Hello (Sage Pictures)

    Hello everyone, I thought I’d say hello and share some recent pictures of Sage. It’s hard to believe that she’s going to be 12 this May. It seems like it was just yesterday that I brought her home. Since she’s not being spoiled rotten, she’s dropped the weight. I’m sure she misses all the “just because” feedings, but she’ll get over it lol I’m in my second semester of nursing school so I haven’t really had any time to spend with her. No riding or anything. I had a custom saddle and tree built for her because she has such wide shoulders, I couldn’t find a saddle to fit. This summer I’ll be able to break it in. I’ll be working in Western Kansas all summer. I’m thinking Sage will love not spending the summer in humidity. I hope everyone is doing well. I periodically check on here when I get a spare minute or two from nursing school.

    Lol arent minis always starving?! That ones actually pregnant in her defense.
  27. The Front Porch

    Looks like the minis are starving like mine this winter. I like how you did the stall & looks to work perfect for what you need them for.
  28. The Front Porch

    Pics of my makeshift stalls. Sonics stall is on the far end with no one next to him because he likes to reach over and bite bootys. Bad boy. The sides stay put and I just take the front panels off when Im done so they all can still hang out in the barn together. Theyre just tied to the pole with paracord.

    RRW, You were right, all of the above, plus a bit of old age mixed in. But I'm trying to improve. PD
