Well the horses should be all ready to go for the year. Well at least for a while. I got teeth checked and floated on Bailey, Razz, Kali and Dinero on Monday and Tuesday. They all got thier vaccines, and wormed on Tuesday. And Bailey, Razz, Disco, Belle, and George got thier feet trimmed on Tuesday as well. Oh and Bailey got a massage on Tuesday too.
I also got my back mostly fixed on Wednesday, I went to the chiro and you know its not good when he says "you sure did a number this time" It sure felt better but he said there is too much to do at once, so I am going back tommorow again.
No baby from Disco this morning, but she is feeling a little more spry as she layed down and did a big roll, although not all the way over cause I dont think she would make it, lol. But sure is a big belly view from the bottom. Of course I never had my camera ready.
I have still been doing a little bit with Jazz everyday I am over at Jardi's, but I have been pretty careful cause of my back, but we tied her up yesterday and one little tug and she just stood there. Even when we accidentally spooked her, she just spun around without any pressure on the rope. So that was good, we plan to do that a few more times for really short and she should be good. I still haven't really tried to lead her out of her stall cause I have been sore, but maybe this weekend. I still have to get her to load too, but that shouldn't be too bad if she will lead good. She picks up her front feet really good without a fight and I haven't been brave enough to do the back feet yet.
Ummm and the blogger ride. I talked to Linda about it and we are not sure we want to risk horses coming in right now and gas is super expensive and it is a really busy time for some, so if it works sometime for you guys, we can plan it whenever. It shouldn't take too much planning, and I am still willing to go around our branding as long as the risk has gone down for EHV. Speaking of, we may have exposed our horses inadvertantly already and didn't know. Where we go practice cattle, like we did Friday, there are cutters there who went down to the finals in Ogden, Utah where this outbreak started. We are not sure they were at the arena, but we are keeping a close eye on our ponies thats for sure. The arena phoned Monday to tell us they are not letting in any horses till its contained. Which is good news, but a little late for us, maybe. So far it has been seven days and nothing seems out of the ordinary but I am staying close to home till I know for sure.
Oh and one last thing, does anyone know a good chiropractor for ponies. And has anyone used one, we are thinking since us humans go and get all fixed up, maybe the ponies need to too. We get massages done on them, but we are interested in a chiropractor too, at least finding out more info on them.
