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...

Trojan Laz

The herd.
Laz, Mini little Chief, and Sawyer.
All is well.
Sawyer rules the herd but the keebler mini and Laz are still bff's
It's nice for Laz to have companionship finally
 Sunny day.
Working on our free lunging
We've been able to play in the arena in fresh, untouched snow at least 5 or 6 different times this winter
It's beautiful and peaceful
 Send away...
 Come in...
What a lovely, low sweet head of trust
 Enjoying a great ride.
Lots of trot work, circling, figure 8's 
 As a OTTB owner, there is a great feeling of ending a great ride, cooling down at the walk, on the buckle.
Any horse owner actually...but having your OTTB hang his head low and calm is heaven
 After our rides, I always rub him everywhere and tell him what a Goooooooooooood boy he is.
He enjoys it.  Licks and blinks and sighs.
"I iz a goooodz boy!"
 Laz and Mason
Mason walked around with us the whole ride and Laz didn't even once try to dart at him
I dont think Laz dislikes Mason in any way. 
I do think Mason can get too close for my comfort of his safety but he LOVES to walk with us.
I think there are days where Laz wants to play and charge at Mason and Mason is just such a softie he doesn't know to move and move FAST.
I watch for him very carefully.
Mason loves to be at the farm and I want to keep it fun for him as well as safe.
 The brown babes

What a cute Jock!
Laz is sporting the Blue and Yellow for Clawson Trojans Varsity Basketball
Because my husband is their Coach and they won 1st place in their Conference.
 Animal abuse...torture...how could I?
"Iz usedz to race Mom and be real real proudz throohoobred..."
It makes me smile to think of how far we've come.
There were days where I could hardly halter him because he would be so wound up and ignoring my space.
Now I can dress him up like a doll ;)

And who can resist a fat mini rolling in the snow?
No one


  1. OK, these pictures are the most adorable yet:) Laz is looking incredible-and I totally agree that the end of the ride, with your horse walking on the buckle is the best! This post made me smile:)

  2. Aww,the mini has such cute little tootsies!

    And Laz is looking awesome. :3

  3. Pony Dress-Up Torture is the best! Looks like you've got quite the talented model there. :-)

  4. Kristen, your pictures of Laz and Mason and mini are always so cute. I can barely stand it. That last mini picture - and Laz dressed up! I am so happy for you and your fun times with Laz. He is a perfect OTTB - on the buckle.

  5. Oh my goodness that last picture is so cute! And of course Laz is handsome. You two have come so far. I'm glad things worked out and you made it through the tough times. Enjoy your wonderful boy. :)

  6. Love, love, love an OTTB riding on the buckle. LBR is doing it now in lessons when we relax between work and courses.

    Also...the mini rolling in the snow made me remember that when I was a kid and wanted a horse more than anything, I used to make horse snow angels instead of human angels by laying on my side:-)


  8. You always manage to make your horse look extremely huggable. why am I in love with that mini too? is it because he is a Paint? All of them look so pretty in the snow. Don't you love how the snow keeps everyone so clean? The scarf is also very cute. Laz the adorable scarf-wearing cheval!! He doesn't look too tortured? He look like he rather likes it!

  9. Can u imagine the mini next to Lilly? How cute!!!
