    Happy Thanksgiving to all the Aunties and future moms!!

    With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought I should attempt to explain the meaning of the holiday to all the barn kids.

    Cleaning stall walls

    My new barn stall walls now are starting to look like crime scene photos right out of CSI. Between the girls that like to lean back right up and smush the poop against the wall, the broken unbilical cord splatter, the rubbing...they are a mess. Stalls are wood....and I've tried all out scrubbing...

    New to mini horses, lots of questions!!

But yes, if it were me I would have expected him to look a little more closly too. Sometimes with older vets I find I almost have to...
