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...

Back home!!

Here's my beautiful boy when I came home....still perfect. 
Of course I worry when we are away that something awful will happen, but he did great and the BO watched him like her own for me.
The BO let Laz free graze around the back property and his feet still look great, so I'm hopeful that he'll be able to continue.  I just want a more natural lifestyle for him as long as it works for him metabolically.
So far, I don't see changes in his feet and all seems to be A-ok

Laz's IR test result
Normal-non IR
I double checked numbers in Dr. Kellon's calculator as well
Still good :)
This gives me options as I plan to move Laz to a new barn, closer to me
I decided that it's too hard to drive over an hour one way and having him closer will help ease so time constraints and will make it easier for me to see him more often
I fell in love with a new small barn that is 35 minutes away that has an incredible turnout set up for Laz
(Did I mention an indoor, two outdoors, a mile long trail training course and 3/4 from a HUGE state park for trail riding) eeeeks. I hope to move him after Labor day.
I hope he adjusts well and enjoys his new barn home 
I searched high and low and after visiting over 20+ places, I had two on my list and this one was #1 choice.

For now, we work and graze and play...

More on our last ride and travels to come...


  1. love the playing photos! what a happy dog, and a good horse to put up with it :)


  2. An hour long drive? Yikes, no wonder you wanted to move. So glad you found a good place. Hope it goes well.

  3. Waaaaaaait a minute! You drive a hour to see Laz? oh good grief, no wonder you are looking for a new barn. And one with all those amenities?? Girrrrrl, you've got it made now!! I am so glad that you found something so good so close. more riding time for you, more snuggly time for Laz!!!

  4. Yaaaaaay, glad you finally found a barn that's close(ish), has great facilities, and is not run by crazy people! That's hard to find!
    Laz is looking great. His body is looking different -- less belly and more topline maybe? I bet everything is starting to fall back into place now that his hooves are making such huge improvements so quickly. Awesome!

  5. Hey, I am glad you are home and had fun! Only 35 minutes! Are you sure? Maybe I need to move, LOL.

  6. So glad you're back...can't wait to hear all about GREECE!

  7. So exciting!!! The new barn is going to be amazing. It must be sad to leave your current barn, but I think it'll be a good move. :) Less driving time and more Laz time!
