    Horses! Is there anything else?
  1. Awww... he's still going to be a nice looking colt... even if he is gray. And Rainbow really HAS put on weight!! She's looking great! Thanks so much for sharing.... [Huggy]
  2. Awww... Romeo is such a cutie! Just give him some time... he will even out, and fill out. I also think it would be so cool if he turns into a smoky blue roan for you... but right now, he looks like a smoky black. Which is pretty cool, too. He's going to be awesome! I wish you and him very many happy memories!! [Huggy]
  3. WOW! [shocked] Things have sure changed at your place, eh?! You've gotten more rescues!! What a cute bunch of young ones you've got on your hands!! So sorry that the lady who was going to take two of them backed out on you. I wish you all the best in trying to win over the ones that are being fearful yet. I KNOW you can do it, though. Look at how you won over the first two... you can win over the newer ones, too! Just remember... TIME is the answer. Go slowly, and before you know it... they'll be following you around like a puppy! Cute pictures... it was so fun to see all your 'new' ones! Good luck!! [Huggy]
  4. I remember baby Faith. So sorry! I've lost two babies... one in 2005 and one in 2007. I still think of them often, and wonder all the time... "what if?" Your baby was so pretty! I'm so sorry you lost her, and that it was from reasons which were never really found out. [Huggy] As far as the lameness issues with your mare... have you had her checked by a vet? It wouldn't be a bad idea to take her to a vet and have her hooves X-rayed. Long story short... one of our mares, Dixie, was suffering with lameness issues for a long time. We bought her gimpy (previous owner told us a stone bruise)... ha ha. Anyways, finally we decided something else needed to be done... as our farrier that we had at the time wasn't being much help either (oh, she'll be fine...blah, blah, blah). Well, we found out she'd foundered in all four feet, and the vet told us to put her down on the spot. After all the time, money...etc, that we had put into her, I couldn't accept that, and finally got him to give me the name of somebody.... anybody who would look at her. She is now on the road to recovery!! She will soon be able to go barefoot... she has NO gimpiness... NO lameness anymore... isn't sore at all, can walk, trot and run ALL with no pain!! It's WORTH it! This is a mare who just early this spring could barely hobble across the pasture on soft grassy ground. Her eyes and ears always told of pain... and now her ears are always alert, and she is raring to go. Anyways... I know this is just Dixie's story, and that all horses are different... but it is SO worth going to the vet. Don't alwasy LISTEN to your vet, though. If we had listened to ours, Dixie would be euthed right now instead of being ridden by my daughter every chance she gets. But, at least you can find out what is wrong... and go from there. Good luck!! :-)
  5. They're all gorgeous. [Huggy] And I think I mentioned this before, but I just love the names you picked out for them. I think you did an excellent job of naming them!! I agree that we need more pics of DeeDee!
  6. Wow! He's getting so big! I'm so glad you got what you wanted, and in the right color, too! He's so pretty. [smiley Wavey]
  7. Awww... she's gorgeous! [Huggy] And SO big! She is starting to look more like a grown up horse than a baby. She really does look like a yearling. She is filling out so nicely. I can't believe it's almost been a year, either. Wow! Seems like just yesterday, and we were all here looking at her newborn baby pics. She is one gorgeous gal!! Happy early birthday, Patience!!! [Jump] [Jump] [Jump] [Jump]
  8. Awww man! No pics?!?! How could you torture us with an update, but no pics?! Glad to hear that they are alright. Can't wait to see pics of them! Oh, and thanks for updating us on them... I really was wondering how they were. [Huggy]
  9. Wow... yeah. Seems kinda odd, huh? Unless she maybe had him mixed up with another colt that was born sooner than yours?? Maybe wrote THAT colt's wean date on the bill of sale instead of your colt's. I have NO idea... just attempted to place myself in her shoes... that's all. Anyways... I sure hope that you can re-schedule the truck! If so, then nothing to worry about, and you still get your gorgeous colt. Congratulations! And keep us updated!! [Huggy]
  10. Apartment Big tall horse or Small stout pony?
  11. [ROTFL] [Crazy] [surrender] Uh... neither! Neon Green or Neon Yellow??
  12. First of all... many, many prayers going out to this poor horse. [Angel] [Angel] [Angel] [Angel] Second of all... this horse belongs in an equine hospital right now. If he were a human, he'd have been admitted to one already (human hospital, that is). Burns are VERY delicate, and infection can set in very rapidly. We're talking BURNT flesh here... BURNT hooves. This is not your typical injury. This is a SERIOUS EMERGENCY. MOST vets WILL let you make payments on a large bill. Which I'm sure this will be, but either this horse gets admitted to an equine hospital equipped to handle burn victims, and is treated and hopefully recovers and owners can make payments till bill is paid off... OR this horse should probably be euthed. Of course that all depends on how SERIOUS his injuries are, but it doesn't sound good since you say his hooves have a chance of sloughing off. A horse can't stand without his hooves... so to me this spells EMERGENCY. This is something you can't treat in a pasture or stall. He's going to run WAY too high of a risk for infection to set into his burns. I certainly wish all involved the best of luck... he's going to need every ounce you guys can muster up. Please keep us updated. Thanks! [Angel] [Angel] [Huggy]
  13. Thanks so much for taking the time to explain all that... I was about to ditto Itchysmom at the end and say I needed pictures, too... but then, there they were... and it STILL didn't make sense! Waiting patiently for that day when that DING DING DING!!! will happen to me. [surrender] I mean... I GET IT. I just don't get how this works and that works and how they all work together. I get most of the PARTS of the hoof, I just don't get WHICH part does WHAT with WHICH part. *sigh* BUT... I'll get there... I WON'T give up... gonna keep reading, and lurking and learning till I DO get it! So... thanks again for explaining this. Now I can read it over and over and over and over and....
  14. Good luck with the X-rays. Hope you find out some answers. I wished I could offer more... wished I was a hoof expert!! Keep us updated!! [Huggy] [smiley Wavey]
