    Founder, help!

    Thank you! He’s definitely better. He took one look at the piece of apple with his bute in it and ran from me. I couldn't catch him. Little stinker. I’ll try again later.

    Founder, help!

    Yes, I understand what you mean on the laminitis vs. founder. I was in a huge panic, so overstated the worst. The vet said he may have had some rotation, but because his feet were so painful, didn’t want to put him through the walk to our closest power source. He said lets give him a few days...

    Founder, help!

    Ziggy is doing much better, thanks! The wedges along with the meds are helping him. We’ve been really sick as well, so it’s great that he’s improving despite us. Both boys are eating primarily hay, with a handful of grain at each feeding. Both of us tested negative for Covid, but we have all...

    Founder, help!

    Thank you for the suggestions! They ate an alfalfa/timothy mix over the winter. It was nice hay. What they have now isn’t great, but the other farmer wasn’t available. I’ll have to see if he is now. During my last trip to the feed store, they were out of so much. I’ll have see if they have beet...

In the meantime, I bedded his stall really deep, so he’s comfortable. He doesn’t have diarrhea any more...

    Questions about rehoming my boys

    Hi All, With great sadness, we are looking to sell our property and move back into town, which unfortunately means rehoming our yearling boys, Ziggy and Theo. I don’t have a clue how to go about it. Both boys are registrable, and have good bloodlines. Ziggy is a flashy black and white pinto...

    Lol! 🤣 They do have names, just not registered names yet. Theo is the black one and Ziggy is the pinto. We’re thinking Mini Brook Graces Dark Star for Theo and Mini Brook Color Outside the Lines for Ziggy. I just have to get good photos of each

    I hope they’re just playing...

    Your boys are beautiful and hysterical at the same time. ❤😍❤️ I wonder if the Red Spray would work on goats? I’ve caught the goats chewing on the horses tails a couple of times. 😬
