Baby Bella – or NOT!

      No Comments on Baby Bella – or NOT!

On 9 Jan we picked up a pretty little hackney pony that was reported to be three years old. She didn’t have a name so three of our littlest volunteers (all under 10) agreed on the name of Bella. She came with a large lump in her left jaw. Since Dr…. Read more »

Sebastian’s Dental Surgery

      No Comments on Sebastian’s Dental Surgery

Sebastian has a condition called EOTRH,  Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hypercementosis Syndrome, which required all his remaining front teeth to be extracted today. Although it looks as though we were using a torture chamber, Sebastian was as comfortable as he could be during his procedure. He only really fussed at… Read more »

We scheduled a Vet visit with Dr. Myran today for what was only supposed to be dental exams. The visit ended up being a well check/surgical/x-ray day instead! Winslow arrived with a damaged eye but it has been quickly changing structure (non emergent). He still has his eye and it’s… Read more »

Rescue In Need

      No Comments on Rescue In Need

Cheyenne’s Battle

      No Comments on Cheyenne’s Battle

We have been medicating the abscess in Cheyenne’s eye for the past month with no real change. Dr. Myran came back out to assess whether the medication was helping at all or we were to take the next step of either removing the eye or consulting with an Ophthalmologist. Tonight… Read more »

Farrier training 101

      No Comments on Farrier training 101

Half the herd was trimmed today, the difficult half. Very frequently our new arrivals have been through experiences that do not make standing for a farrier fun or they simply haven’t had the proper training. Once again Kasie proves why she’s our excellent choice to keep our herd on the… Read more »

Dr. Myran visited us this morning to ensure everyone was current on their vaccinations and Coggins. He also checked out our new arrivals and gave us some good and so so news. Cheyenne is doing so well that she is able to go back into rotation with light exercise. Sebastian… Read more »
