Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

Glamour Shots

Yes, I braved the COLD and snow and drive (slowly and carefully) to check on my boy.
I over worry (shocker!!!) that he's cold.  He was fine and as snug as a bug in his winter rug.
Out at pasture, playing and digging for grass nibs, but still comes to me..........aw!
 Iceballs on his whiskers and chin hairs but he was warm!
 "Sniff..PawPawPawPaw...Oh, a blade of grass. YUM!"
 Soon, Laz will be able to be turned out with the other geldings...I'm sure he'll be so excited to be able to naw and play with others.  He's been home schooled for so long, and longs to be with the others and finally he's at that stage where he can safely. (knock on wood of course)
 Ice balls on his feet, yet when I put my bare hand on his leg it was warm (not hot)...so I need not worry about him being cold.
I was so inspired by this photo, that I HAD to try out our own Holiday Glamour Shots....lol!
Not an easy task!!!
First we had to walk to line of horse eating trees...
 Laz was a little concerned a had two BIG spooks where he jumped back, but I just told him "Beauty is Pain" and we worked it out until he was calm. It was more of a fake spook really...he was just feeling GOOD!
So, for $1 at Target, you too can have a Seussical Santa hat!
Just cram one big furry ear in there... and Snap away
This was the best shot of the day...cute but not cover material
 Darn that beautiful sunshine!
 Laz was going to town wanting to EAT this horse eating pine tree
 Black Stallion??
 "Mom..I'm over this"
 "Mmmm, maybe one more bite...can I get a lemon twist with this?"
 I love this one too!  
Despite the COLD, it was a beautiful winter day with tons of white snow

"RUUUUUN...Pine tree came alive!!!!!"
 "what happened??"
 Mason wanted to show his modeling skill..
"Like this Mom?"
 "How about I do the 'give me your steak' gaze while I casually look over my right shoulder, Mom"
Paparazzi beware!


  1. Great photos! He looks very happy out there in the snow!

  2. So adorable!!!! I am glad you are able to enjoy the cold and sun and snow. Laz and Mason are both too cute. I like your new header too. Laz might be naughty with his spooks but he has the most innocent eyes. Stay warm!!!!

  3. ROFL @ "home-schooled." Hahahahaha! I'm sure Laz will be thrilled to be back with a herd. :-) And I'll bet he will be even more calm once he gets to pal around with his pony friends.
    He looks very handsome in his Santa hat. And, yes, like Juliette said, stay warm up there in that frozen Northland!

  4. Target? Seriously? I'm so there!
    I'd love to get our boys together for a photo shoot...they are such poster boys for cute OTTBs!
    Laz is adorable, Mason is adorable...I love winter photography, actually. I'm going to try to get something decent this weekend of my boy.
    I also totally loled at homeschooled Laz:)

  5. Miles-we can SO get our boys together! I was going to talk to u about a 'confidence builder' class that we may do in Spring. It's a 5 hr class and $60 per person :) Check it out http://www.confidenthorse.com/

  6. An idea for ice balls in the hoof. Spray Pam on his feet when you pick them out. I heard it keeps the ice from building up. If it works or not, I do not know. Denali would freak if I sprayed anything. We're still working on that.

  7. Oh the Pam does work. His ice balls were actually on his legs, not under hooves. :)
    He'd be cool with anything I do to his feet now..lord knows I'm always fussing with them.
    This will be his first barefoot winter so I'll keep my eyes out for snowballs forming under toe.

  9. Oh don't worry, if he's been getting homeschooled, he'll be fine!! :-)


    Seems like it's cold everywhere!

    (sorry about the delete- had the link wrong!)

  10. Aren't photo sessions so fun? :) It's difficult to do by yourself for sure.

    Mason sure is photogenic. I think he wants to be a model lol.
