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...

Dear Laz
What is cutting your sweet, beautiful face?
You have had 3 cuts all around the same section of your face approximately 4 inches from your star.
Today, when I visited you, and groomed you, you were dramatically head shy.
You are NEVER head/ear/anything shy.
My stomach instantly sank.
I lifted your fuzzy fragglerock bangs and found dried blood on your normally white star.
 Ohhhh Babykins, I cooed...
When I tried to wipe away the dried blood with a wet cloth to clean and treat, you told me "PLEASE...PLEASE do not touch." and lifted your normally pressing nose into my jacket, way up in the air out of any 7 ft reach.
Ugh, my stoic boy who let's me touch and treat anything...how bad does it hurt?
How did you do this?
Where you rough housing with your friends? 
Did you bang it on something?
Were you kicked?
Do I call the vet (it's after 6 pm)
What would they do anyway? No open wound, nothing to stitch...sedate?? For what?
Ok, breathe...
You don't want me touching it yet. 
You ate your BP just fine and are nibbling your hay
Good signs.
You are warm.
I will come back tomorrow to try and treat it again and figure out how this happens as I don't see anything sticking out, anything with tufts of fur on it..and I've been looking.
BO's too can't figure it out and haven't seen anything that Laz is doing to cause harm.
Both are kind people and one is a small animal Vet so there is no foul play (just wanted to rule that out as a culprit)
If only, I had my "Horsei" prototype, I could view online the last 24 hours to try and see what caused this.
What is the "Horsei?"

I can't tell you how many times I wished for this product to be real
Patent pending...
For reals.


  1. Poor Laz? What is he getting into?

    I ask the same thing about Shy. She has a cut over her eye that I have no idea how she got.

    Your invention would be a blessing for horse owners! I voted!! So cool!

  2. Aw, Lazaroo, what are you doing sweet boy? I think your idea is wonderful and I wish you all the luck in the world!! Laz, be your good boy self and let your mama make you all better:)

  3. Oh, poor Laz. I am sorry about his ouchy face. I hope you find the culprit. Poor honey.

  4. Poor Laz. A friend of mine had a horse with a wound in the exact same place - turns out he slammed his forehead into a low-hanging tree branch, and an old stub of a twig got embedded in his forehead right under the forelock (talented horse, right?) The vet was able to remove the chunks of wood with a little sedation.

    I sure hope Laz didn't manage to do anything quite that silly!

  5. I love it! I want it! Can I get a companion camera that is from his field so I can see him while I watch what he is looking at? Love it! Didn't vote though because you have to have an account :(

  6. Kristen. . .there's an award for you on my blog! :)

  7. Don't worry too much. That area is actually a pressure point, so with an injury it may be more sensitive, keep it clean and give it time to heal. Horses are amazing at healing and at finding things to get hurt on!!!

    He's looking great! LOVE the snowflakes on his coat photo you took!!

  8. Poor guy! I hope your invention makes it so you can figure out how he's doing this! I hope he feels better soon.
