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...

The day we decided to rescue him, Sept 2008 ..my Husband meeting Lazarus for the 1st time.  

Grabbing him from a pasture full of dumped OTTB's...sad, I still think of that little grey filly below that was in love with Lazarus and what happened to her.
Lazarus: "who is this girl??"

In Oct of 2009, Laz got very ill (colic with high fever) which lead into laminitis in his hind hooves.  
I almost lost him several times in our critical battle but things finally took a turn for the better in March of 2010.
 Thanks to the many caring suggestions of my blog readers, who advised me to research alternative options and that started by taking him barefoot, put on turnout, and started researching into holistic options.
