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...

Spring in December

This December has had some FUNKEE weather patterns!
Tuesday and Wednesday were warm, like high 40's to 50's.
Then it rained, and poured.
I came out check on my delicate OTTB to make sure he was ok..

"HI MOMMMMMMM MOM MOM MOM, I has bezt furnds!!"
When I was pulling up to the barn, I saw Laz and Justin rearing and playing and zip zipping around.  It literally made my heart swell with happiness!
 These two were having such fun playing, it was SO fun to watch and snap photos of
 "Iz u wachin???"

 "I do's my fancee leg muves"
This was so great to see. Just the day before I was freaking myself out that I hadn't seen Laz trot on his own in a while.
Well this day made up for it
 Chasing each other back and forth in the two pastures
 "Whur'da go?"
 "I luvs u..."
 "I luvs to eats yo face!"

 "Ohhhh Heeeeeei LazMommMom"
 "Ery buddy OUTS!"
I actually LOVE this picture despite the filth.
I love Laz's tiny floaty trot as he hovers over the puddle unmuddling his reflection in the mud
 Red, the other OTTB makes me laugh in photo below.
Look at him ZOOOOM
 The spring air in December made for a fun day for these 3 boys
 One (of many) great characteristic of Laz is how he's come into his own the last 3 yrs.
He shows independent thoughts frequently and it rocks.
 He decided he had enough play time and came to me for our groom session (oh, and maybe because I had his bucket of beet pulp especial waiting for him!)
"Whew...iz tirud"

And when I was done with Laz..he went off into the mist with his best friend.
Ha! It's so great how happy he is
 Today, after CRAZY 25 mph winds yesterday (which dried up all the mud thankfully) it's back to normal December weather of mid 30 to low 30's.  Laz is still naked and doing great with it.
I also snapped a quick image of his RH
It shows less bruising (hoorah) and hopefully is healing and getting thicker by the day.
I treat at least 5 days a week with Keratex Hoof hardener and it seems to be doing a great job.
Below is from a few weeks ago which shows how his bruising is clearing up


  1. Laz looks like he is having so much fun!! Yay! I am so happy for him. . .and you! :)

  2. Great pictures. I'm so glad he's feeling good!! :)

  3. These photos made me smile! So great to see. I love the reflection photo too... I don't care if he's muddy, he's still beautiful!

  4. Aaawww, Lazaroo is definitely enjoying his new lifestyle!

    And I'm still cracking up over the fact that Laz is naked and people down here are starting to put sheets on their horses if the overnight low is in the mid-fifties. :-D

  5. Laz looks like he is having lots of fun! I like the picture of him trotting over the puddle too!

  6. Laz looks like he's having a blast with his paddock mates.

  7. We haven't had any snow yet but the weather sure has been weird!!

  8. His hoof looks fantastic!!! Yay for such wonderful progress. The mudball boy looks like he's having so much fun. :D I'm glad he's feeling good and has such great buddies. I'm enjoying the bizarre warm days too.
