About this Blog

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...

Sunny December..what?!

 I literally cherish the sunshine. Especially on cooler days.
Today, after work, it was a mild 30 and sunny. No wind. It felt like Spring.
I decided to grab Mason who hasn't been to the barn (old man has been struggling a little lately so I've been spreading out his visits-my loyal co-pilot) in a while and head out.
Carpe Diem bitches. Sunny, and especially knowing I have the babes coming soon, I wasn't going to let this day slip by.
Belly BUMPIN'...You can see my feet but I can't ;)
I'm happy to say that in my 37+ week I can still pick/trim hooves, groom, etc. Riding not so much although if my Hubbie had been with me, I would have done it today.
Mason playing in the winter field (no snow--huurah!)
Flip flopping around

Chewing on one of our future xc logs in the field
 He was literally trying to pick it up
"MOM..I found the bestest stick everrrrr!!"

Bless his lumpy heart
Speaking of lumps.
FatLaz in trotting action. We played at liberty today
(yes I had treats in my pocket. Fatty is food motivated)
His hoof resection is looking good. I'm planning on doing a white lightening soak this weekend to keep on top of any possible disease at bay but he is moving sooooo awesome
 He was a snuggle puss. Really into wanting to play/please
 Smiles all around
oh and double chins.

Early December ...

Did you ever care about the weather before owning your horse? I swear, I'm like a make shift obsessed weather girl now. 
"What's the precipitation today?!!?" 
"Is it freezing rain or just rain??!!!"
It's all for the good of my ponyboy

At any rate, it's been relatively mild so far, I think. High to mid 30's
Hell, I'll take anything above 20 with a SMILE!!!

Yesterday afternoon I was able to sneak in time for a fun schooling session.
I haven't done much of this lately do to some hoof re-sectioning that we've been working on (more of that to come as I get more length of time in between for our dramatic results!! All great so far though!)

Laz was definitely wanting/needing some play/mind work
This is when I asked him for a canter on the line...uphill much? 
Major zoomies but he was funny and great. He needed a release.
I also had my baby shower at 36 wks..the time is near.
Holy. Shit.

Lucky to have these friends...not a one a horse girl, can you believe it?! Don't worry...I try to bribe all their children to ask for ponies, mwaa haaa haaaa!

Lots of temporary changes coming up.
Winter. Baby. Work. Easing into changes, etc.
I have no idea of how to really plan for it....all I know is no matter what, I hope my animal kids stay safe while I may be busy (and on the days I can't see Laz--ugh boarding an hour away can really be hard), and will be loved by us for life.
I look so forward to riding again. I dream of it often but nuzzling his sweet fuzzy face is a great source of happiness too.
