Horsey Update ♥

Update on all current rescue horses:

FREYA ~ Freya had an internal preg test on Friday and she is not in foal which is awesome. Due to heavey sedation she was left in the stable for the night but during the night, she jumped over the stable door and into the handling yard which is were hope was. Naughty naughty Freya. She is a bit unsettled since June was re-homed but all in all she is well and still searching for a new home (see horses for adoption section of this website).

HOPE ~ Hope has been with me since the 31st of July. When the vet checked her over he said it would be touch and go with her as she was in such a bad way. She was 12.2hh, the size of a weanling and almost 2 years old. I put her in the paddock, feeding small meals and regular for the last 1 and a half months with not much handling or other interaction besides some aromatheropy treatment. Last weekend, I decided that it was time for her to have some handling. She was in a 1 acre paddock and took hours to catch and after a nasty rope burn, Carol and I caught her and lead her up to the handling yard, which is were she will stay for a few weeks to settle. The next mission is to bath her. She has so much energy which is awesome and is really acting like a baby TB filly. Her sire is very well known TB stallion Elvstroem who is by Danehill and his service fee is $38,500 Yet this little filly was so badly starved she will probably not grow over 14hh. Her poor little legs have no muscle what so ever but her little body is putting on weight well. The warts on her nose are starting to fall off which is great. I will keep you all posted on how she goes with handling etc.

MA ~ Grandma is doing really well and putting on weight like a trooper, she has so much energy and was galloping around the property like a mad woman on Friday while i was trying to catch Hope. She has the most loving amazing personality and i just love the old girl to bits. I did put her in the paddock with Gabby for a short while after June left but Gabby was picking on her, so i took her out again. She gets bossed around by all of the horses, even little hope. But ill paddock her with Whiskey when he comes home, he will just love annoying her ♥.

ZORIA ~ Zoria is doing really well out at Karen's, she is really loving having the massive paddocks to herself. She is healthy and almost ready for a new home. Karen will be spending the next 2-3 riding her and she has first option to adopt her, which is very much likely. She has grown attached to the beautiful girl.

KRYSTAL ~ The beautiful 27 year old retired stock horse mare who has retired with me and is fostered to Ryley and her beautiful family. She is still having the odd nose bleed but is happy and healthy, enjoys a swim in the creek and eating all of the reeds. She is a beautiful old girl and i think she will be happy to see the end of Whiskey who has been there to keep her company. Whiskey is now coming home as Ryley has bought a lovely riding horse, who will also keep Krystal company. :-)

WHISKEY ~ Whiskey has been up with Krystal keeping her company and healing from the loss of Brandy, but he is coming home on Friday. He will now go into the paddock with Ma. Whiskey has the most loving personality and makes an amazing nanny horse. ♥

SAMPY ~ Sampy is still in Foster care with Janelle, heavey rain and a very steep drive way have stopped me from having him picked up yet, but he is happy there and Janelle is just amazing for looking after him while he is in her care. He is very much in awesome hands. But we will get him home as soon as we can.
