Good Things and Bad Things

Hi everyone. I will probably be scarce on blogging for a few months. My mom and step dad died last Monday so I'm busy prepping a house with five acres and big barn to sell. There isn't much time for ponies and you wouldn't want to hear about what I'm doing all day.  

Dickie is doing well but he decided to poke his knee and my friends have been out giving him abx and cleaning the wound. It's not bad but I get nervous with cuts over joints. He's sound and still full of piss and vinegar. 

Bre is as pretty as ever. She made it through the whole winter without a blanket. She has started to shed like crazy. I went out for some pony therapy beauty parlor time on Friday. I can't wait for her shiny summer coat. 

In happy news I've decided to foster Dickies brother once probate closes. He needs me and emotionally I need a project like this. Dickie is to the point where he isn't a project. He's a horse I can get on and go to shows but I always crave a greenie. Isn't he cute? He has the same tb father as Dickie. They are the same age. His mom looked appy but we are thinking there might be some welsh in her. The farm that dumped him in the kill pen had a welsh stud. He moves much flashier (like a welsh) than Dickie and is smaller. He's not a pony but under 15h. He's the same color as Dickie in the winter but last summer had those pretty dapples. My friend who lives near the rescue is my partner in crime for this project. She will take him for a few months and get him used to being led in and out. Then once probate closes he will come here and get some under saddle training from me. 


  1. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom and step-dad!
    Take care of yourself.

  2. I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom and step-dad. Hopefully the new project can help cheer you up a bit.

  3. Wow. That's terrible. I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom and step-dad.

    I can't see any of the photos but I can't wait to see Dickie's brother. He sounds adorable and I love small horses!

  4. Oh my goodness!! I'm sorry to hear about your loss. :(

  5. Oh my goodness. I am so sorry for your loss! I am glad that you are able to focus on the good things as well. Many many hugs to you during this tough time.

  6. I'm so sorry about your mom and step dad. :(

    I can't see the pictures in this post for some reason.... and I really want to see Dickie's brother. That's exciting that you'll be able to work with him!!

    I hope Dickie's knee is fine. Chrome punctured his hock a long time ago and the vet had us use an antibiotic just to be on the safe side. It took forever to heal, but I don't think it punctured the joint capsule. I think the vet said you'll see a clear liquid draining and they would be limping if they did... it's been a while though so don't take my word for it. Anyway I hope he's all healed up by now. :)
