So, my younger sister's creative talent is amazing. These are just a few of the shots (she took like 400 so far) of Laz and I, she took with her camera and killer skills!
She loves his eye and thinks he makes a great muse.
Love his wet neck from being hosed off in this picture.
He was awesome for the photo shoot...so relaxed and I think enjoying being center of attention. He is after all, an ex race horse and used to the paparazzi
He was really being ham that day, and she said she finally saw that goofy personality.
So far, this one below is in my top 10...I mean what a handsome boy-it's almost unfair!!! ;)
And back to regular cell phone pictures...boo.
Laz's hoof is looking funktastic but Cliff came out last night to check on a flare/crack that I texted to him and trim him on the spot. Cliff simply CARES and wants Laz to succeed. It's such tremendous support.
Laz is actually walking great and acting like that dead hoof that was trimmed off is not an issue and almost seems more comfortable. I'm off to NYC until Tuesday with my sister so the BO is going to keep her eye on him but we suspect he'll be just fine. If he's gimpy limpy more, Cliff will hoof cast him to aid him through.
It looks like a saw went thru his hoof, doesn't it? The new growth though is good and strong.
We just have a while before this dead hoof pushes off and Cliff wants Laz to determine when it comes off slowly.
So due to another rain storm, Laz got a new awesome hair cut via me begging the BO to roach it!
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think he looks like a British Sport TB and he loves it!
I know, a lot of you with horses that rub off their manes are probably gasping...but with his THICK mane, and manly good looks, I think a summer mohawk totally rocks on this brown boy.
And now for some videos....I thought since I'm taking a 5-6 day hiatus, I'd leave you with PLENTY of Laz, lol!!
Video of BO "C" walking him to see if we could tell if he was more lame since yesterday, after the 'emergency' trim of his hoof from last night. Well, it was NOT an emergency..just unexpected, sort of. He seems to be doing great, still! Whew!
Last year, Lazarus had these odd sores on his hock areas, but actually like inside this cove where his hock and ankle are (I think that's his ankle?? back knee?) and I had thought they were from laying down, but now I think they are just itchy spots that he must dig at. I found that out today while scraping off his dirty scabs to put medicine on it...you'll see what I mean when you watch the video:
This video is just me running with him being he was in such a fun mood today!
He feels good, little British Sporthorse!
Obviously he still limps, but with a few more Chiro adjustments and letting his hoof continue to grow and watching his diet, I hope to get Lazarus back to a healthy boy....well, healthier, because he is happy and healthy now considering!
