....because I haven't done horsie stuff besides cleaning up their shit in like a month.....
Not much going on here and a lot all at the same time.... just boring stuff. Sold Dnieper, ironically after my last post to a little breeding farm in East Texas. A couple of old school horsemen will mainly breed to their own mares with him. I think it's going to be a pretty good home for him. He will basically be a lawn ornament who gets lots of grooming, treats, plush stall and a few visits with the ladies each spring. Went to NY for a weekend to visit my besties from college and stand up for one of them in her wedding. That was a ton of fun! Then I came home and we had to bring Curtis home. He has a 75% tear in his right front tendon. So stall rest for him for a million years and maybe we can bring him back if another ultrasound shows it healed. If it doesn't, there goes his career as my next jumper. Though he would make a pretty dressage horse too. So there's always that outlook.
My carport and storage shed are done but the addition/sunroom probably isn't getting done this year :(
I have to work on Twister's and Rascal's feet this weekend. It's my project. I want to ride so bad but at this point they are too tender and their feet too awkward to boot. My person has promised to help. I will be holding him to that!!! I hate Twister's feet sooooo much. They are a fulltime job and I just don't have 10 minutes 6 days a week to doctor them, nor the $50 a month for special supplements nor the 45 mins every 7-10 days to trim them. Not to mention I'm not riding so he isn't getting the stimulation and blood flow he used to.... And he STILL has white line. I spent MONTHS last year cleaning out the cracks, soaking, medicinalizing, painting his feet and gave him SMZs and copper and Vit E to help fight the white line. But did it ever take a hike? Fuck no. I love this horse like crazy. He is the best horse. But I fucking hate his feet. SO. MUCH. Sometimes I just want to sell him and buy a horse who can go 4-6 weeks between trimmings like a normal, sound fucking horse.

And Twister has gotten a random grey patch on his withers. Not sure what that's from. I'd say poor saddle fit, but it's appeared since my last pregnant ride around New Years and I've ridden maybe 7 times since then? And it's a little further up than where either of my saddles go.... Hmmm....
|because even when I hate him, I love him and he's|
