What a week...

So it's been a little bit of the week from hell here lately. Johnny managed to colic twice this week for no apparent reason and on top of that I've been studying like crazy for finals and getting all sorts of loose ends tied up with classes. Not to mention that the temperatures this week plummeted down into the low 30s during the day and the 20s and high teens at night. We got our first snows this week and the ground has started to freeze over. Not ideal conditions for the late night camp outs at the barn with a sick horse. The good news is that Johnny looked better again today (although I'm still holding my breath because last time he was fine for 2 days and then got sick again.) I've got a few new pictures to add to this blog, mainly because I don't really have anything else to update.

Johnny in his stall (and very muddy) a few weeks ago

John's nameplate above his stall. All of the horses have matching ones :)

John's post-colic mush. All he gets is a couple handfuls and a whole bunch of water and mineral oil.

Johnny and Fino in the pasture today. There's like no grass left, but Johnny's trying anyway.

More updates as they come.

  1. Aw, poor guy! My older mare always liked to colic when the weather changed. Hope he is feeling better soon!
