    She had her baby last night! ❤️ A beautiful little filly!

    In a sad turn of events rodeo has moved on. We went for a walk yesterday with him and found him down this morning. He had blood coming from his mouth and was cold to the touch. The vet is thinking a brain aneurysm or something traumatic in his body. RIP little guy ❤️

    They will be separate as soon as she is getting ready to foal. We check her daily but right now they are doing well together. He’s too malnourished at the moment to try anything. The vet was not concerned with keeping them together awhile longer. I didn’t even think about shaving all his color...

    Slowly getting there! It has only been a few weeks but we are getting better! The vet came out and confirmed a pregnancy on the mare! Also told us our little rodeo is a stud. Please don’t let him be the father of this foal. He’s also looking to be closer to 4 in age, so seriously… fingers...

    I wish you luck in building stuff!! It’s so rewarding. We built the dirt up right there in the front so it’s not such a drop. We haven’t completely decided where we want it so until we decide we won’t make anything permanent!

    Nope. Nope! My moms boyfriend is a carpenter and has help me and my mom build every building on the property! I certainly am taking notes though! We have quite the funny farm so we have lots of different barns. Luckily they all match since we get to do them ourselves!

    Don’t mind the scary haircut. I promise it’s better under his body. His face was so itchy it was hard to get a clean cut 😆 we got his barn built and moved outside today though! We did build him a ramp also because man that was a big leap for him 😅 he’s happier everyday though!

    Luckily my boyfriend is a fantastic farrier! I turn him out daily in sand to get him exercise. Once he has a bit more weight I plan to start taking him for walks up and down our HUGE hill on our road.

    The girl does not have a name yet. I was thinking Dally maybe but our mustang is named Sally already 😂 we were told she is bred so the 28th we have an ultrasound set up for her to see! For now they are safe and warm with full belly’s. (Not too full though) 😉 I can’t wait till they are healthy...

    They are clipped and staying in the basement next to a pellet stove. They should be warm and toasty! The mare has hard lumps all over her and little rodeo looks so much thinner now 😭

    I shampooed with medicated lice shampoo clipped and then put lice powder on him. I also worked him again with ivermectin. We will just have to wash his blankets weekly!

    I was thinking lice. They wouldn’t come out and are stuck to the hair so I’m thinking they are Eggs. We just adopted them from a rescue. A crappy one I’d say!

    He just seems like he’s lame at the moment. His hips move weird but maybe there is something else going on. The vet should be able to tell us! Just bathed him and his sister and holy moly live central! I’m afraid clipping is the best option right now as we have multiple other horses and donkeys...

    I am going to start soaking some cubes overnight and give him that in the morning. I named him little rodeo for my little cowboy. My son is three months old (yes he got a pony before he could walk) 😂 I would love for him to either be able to ride or drive him! I want to be able to spend the next...

    This little guy is nothing but bones. I started him on good quality grass hay, mini feed, and alfalfa pellets. We just picked him up today from a rescue. His coat is like a woolly mammoths. Should I clip him? Should I feed him differently? I’ve had tons of horses but this is my first mini. We...
