Just a quick update. Blind stallion is now in a new home! It has been a couple of weeksand no complaints but I was straight up about what they were getting.
Sally is starting to look pretty good! She is all healed up and running in small bursts. She has grown 4 inches long and 2 inches higher. Hard to get weight on them in a growing spurt, let alone with one that was in such bad shape.

Hope you can get some pics up soon. I can't wait to see how much she's improved and so glad she has energy enough to run now. That's quite a change from that poor starved filly you brought home .

I am having a artist do a drawing of her and will post that when I get it. Will be a bit before I can get pictures up but will soon. Have a surprise up my sleeve so will post all at the same time. I will be with out a riding horse soon and I am OK with that, as will be starting Lovie very slowly after X-rays to make sure her knees are done. She is my favorite and I am willing to wait for her!

I found Sally the rescue a home. Reality sunk in and I don't need 3 horses and she went to a good home. Mark has left his job to try and make a go at his photography and had to do some dollar crunching.

I'm glad you found Sally a good home! Now you can concentrate on Lovie & Lad. What a combo!

I couldn't agree more. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with all that long hair around my horses feet .

Good work Beth on saving that poor filly's life and placing her. I hope you're breathing easier now .

Gotta take mineral oil and sulphur mix and coat the feathers to keep them healthy and not hold things in them such as mud. It is nasty and smelly work but love running my fingers through all of the hair on the clydesdale! It also helps prevent scratches! Instead of pure sulpher I use MTG.

The long hair that covers the hooves on a Clydesdale are called "feathers" .

Actually it doesn't. It just helps to keep mud and ice balls from sticking. It also helps with keeping away scratches(think that is what it is called). Fungus is also controlled!Washes out easy for shows and is absorbed pretty quickly .Doesen't even look oily.
As of yesterday only 2 horses here! Yaaaaaa........Lovie was upset with her buddy leaving but Lad was to busy enjoying not getting ran out of his stall!
I wonder if a gypsy or a clyde has ever done endurance? Hum.....

Thanks for explaining, Beth! I was having visions of you squirting motor oil or something into the horses' legs!
