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 is cleared for same light exercise once his topline fills just a slight amount more.
Blue and Lady are as we all expected and just need some groceries. They have determined that Nick is their buddy and love the back pasture.
Dr. Myran suggests that Avery, Hiawasse, and Penny are all at least 20 years old and Moses is around 18. Penny’s leg wound and Hiawasse’s eyes will have to be watched for cancer growth as they are both prone. Moses is clear for exercise with proper padding and saddle fit, we just have to ensure he does not drain from his old withers injury.
All of our new residents need some additional groceries but otherwise seem to be in good health. Fly masks will be fun trying to keep on these guys since quite a few are having allergy / conjunctivitis reactions. Let the scavenger hunts begin!
We get horses in every condition that you can imagine. Sometimes their mental state or training level is as bad as their physical health. Kasie has been our Farrier almost from day one. None of our horses has been too much of a challenge for her yet, and those we feel may be actually turn out to be the best when she’s finished with them.
Moses has not allowed anyone to trim his feet in some time. He’s had damage to his withers and has had a lack of handling. Moses still didn’t want to allow any work today at first. Kasie had a chat with him then he decided he would stand just fine.
Moses came to us through an individual that completed most of his rehabilitation over the Winter. He still needs a little weight and some training on picking up his feet. He’s a little skittish of people but in your pocket once he realizes you’re ok. He will need some refresher training and the remaining weight and will be available to a home.
Moses is 14.2h and currently ~878 lbs. He has dark bay spots that turn reddish during the Winter. He’s truly a gorgeous boy who deserves a home where he can be loved.
