Ellie Updates

It’s been quite a while since I have given an update on Estella. In fact, I totally missed blogging about her yearly conformation update (in June…whoops) and her 5th birthday (in July…whoops, again). Hopefully she doesn’t take my laziness personally… Although, I do think I will blog about those...

Moving

Estella will be moving barns today. I hate moving her only 5 months after we moved down here, but it has to happen. The new barn is closer to work, only 14 stalls, and a beautiful facility including an indoor arena, outdoor arena, round pens, big pastures, and is...

Updates

A quick summary of what has been going on: I found someone to haul Estella! I sent him a deposit, so hopefully that means he will be showing up ;). We both leave on June 29th. The humans will be leaving in the morning, Estella will be leaving at...

A Lack Of Updates

Apparently Estella loves our vet so much that she can’t go a week without seeing him. Friday she was the lamest I have ever seen her on her left hind. Like worse than before the hock injections. To top it off, she looked so weak and acted so lethargic I though she...

Sunshine and Vet Updates

My boyfriend and I made a rather quick trip to North Carolina this weekend. The plans got cut short because of the glorious weather today, but we still got a lot accomplished in the day and a half we were there! Although it was a little cold, it was nothing compared...

Quick Update

OSU will be back out Friday afternoon. Hopefully I can take the day off because it sounds like the vet has some pretty big plans! He is bringing in a neurological specialist from Medicine to evaluate her. It is hard to determine if her “wonkyness” is neurologically related, or muscle...

Quick Update

Although I have lots of interesting, thought-provoking posts in the works, I haven’t had time to finish them. In the meantime, here is a little update on Estella: She recently started a 14 day treatment for her neurological problems (not to treat the EPM, but to treat the symptoms)....

We Love Fridays

It’s Friday. That means: No work tomorrow. Or even the next day! The electricity is back on in my barn after a week and a half of dark, miserable, miserable, 1800s hell. I had a lesson for the first time in months. My horse is a superstar. My boyfriend...

‘Merica

Last night we got back to the good, ol’ U. S. of A. Vacation was absolute paradise and Ohio just doesn’t compare on any level. Except for this: Even though I have to leave for the weekend, I had to stop by to see my precious angel. I didn’t...

Taking the Leap

I finally got the courage to change the look of my blog! I have been wanting to give it a face lift for a while now, but never had the time to put the effort in it to make it exactly how I want it. Although I kept the...
