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).

Wrapping up November...

Sunday I had a great ride on Laz. He was SOOOO spirited!! Squealing and arching his neck and curling up, shortening his stride and then taking off like a little race horse. He has some MAJOR zoomies to get out and it took a good 30 minute ride to get his brain back in his head. I was so happy to have my saddle that makes me feel centered and secure on him, especially out in our hilly large pasture. Why is it they always act up at the top of a hill pointing downwards?
He finally started to blow out and relax and stretch down and after I got one good, large figure 8, I ended that pasture ride and cooled off with a road ride. That and it was 22 degrees and windy
Silly pony... I wish I had video of it!!

More updated photos as I see progress in Laz's hoof with Thrush b gone
It just seems that his 'holes' are closing which is fantastic
I basically apply it to his RH after I pick it out, every 3 days now...

This white line disease has been active in there for years and must run deep into his hoof wall, so any improvement is great
Below is to compare fresh after his trim 10/30 to see how the hoof has been changing with the Thrush b Gone application

Today I just hand walked the two boys 
(I was wishing I had time to ride inside as it was a nice day with no wind)

 And we saw like 6 wild turkeys!!! I haven't seen any in AGES and of all weeks, Thanksgiving?! 
LOL They have some nerve! 
It made me giggle as to 'oh, maybe that's why we eat Turkey...because they were out and about.'
It still shocks me to see them flap and fly away.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
I know I feel thankful for so so much...

  3. Whenever I see a turkey fly I am shocked they can actually get up in the air. They are so awkward and clunky looking!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving wishes late and always - we all have so much to be grateful for every day with these sweet horses and pups. Not sure if I commented on Mason's post but that was just adorable! Can totally imagine your happiness seeing him play with his brother. Sovey and Foggy were so bonded right away as reunited brothers. Definitely the most happy photos you have of the two brothers playing - and Pudgie confused! Hilarious!
