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 Toes

My Arab looking OTTB
Had to pull out the soaking boot with clean trax a couple of weeks ago.
Either an abscess popped or something was causing him to be a bit foot sore. Prior to our starting them back on the grass pastures too :/
I did find a hole/thrushy spot in his RH frog so this soak cleaned it out 
After the soak I booted him, and here he was napping the next morning
I walked over and rubbed his back and hips and he groaned and stretched 
Sweet boy
He was walking 99% better so I unbooted him

Laz was RUNNING like a true race horse out there...and then promptly stopped and stuffed his face

Mother's Day brunch...boy it was great. 
 French food and Moms go hand in hand
My cousin and I took my Mom and Aunt out and had a great time
 Back at the barn
Both my chocolate men are..uh, grazing. Mason is mid snap lol!
 Laz has mostly shedded out his winter coat
 Looking back at some noise on our walk.
He still needs a bath and a mane trim but he is shiny on his own accord!
