a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Here Come Da Doc

Thursday we got to use the round pen. Coggins tests for all equines, five-way shots and gelding for poor Broken Arrow. I also wormed every body since I had them up.

Everything ran smoothly which kinda surprised me. I should have been stepped at least once or pushed out the way, with every one begging for loving. I got fly wipe on everyone, brushed manes and coats and just loved them in general. I was very proud of how well they behaved. My trainer, Samantha or Sam, is responsible for all this good behaviour.

Knot shows his disdain of the whole event by leaving a pile right by the vet's truck.

Magic decided to eat the truck for revenge.

The knock out shot.

We had an audience


The safety tie

Waking up, stallion no more, Broken Arrow

And he's up, feeling woozy.

Mama checking our her big baby. Everything is good.

We load up our horses (3) to take them to the vet, although I'm sure he would come here if we asked. Now if I can just find a farrier that will come HERE. The farrier my hubby uses does not make house visits. What a pain in the arse. I start a new job Weds so I'm hoping to meet some local horsey people and make some new contacts. :)

Poor Broken Arrow, glad he made it through his gelding ok.

I loved the movie, Broken Arrow.

Being a dumb city girl, I had to go and look up the definition of farrier. I wish I could get one to come tom my house to give me a pedicure. My feet are looking rough-and that's a crime during flip flop weather.

Vet day can always be interesting! This year we had so much mud from the terrible winter we had, so our poor vet had to wade through sticky mud!
Thank you for stopping by my blog!

The name Broken Arrow takes on a whole new meaning now doesn't it? What beautiful horses:)

I'm glad everything went so smoothly. Your horses look so fat, sleek, happy and healthy, too.
