Our Beloved Wally Has Crossed Rainbow Bridge

BHFER & EW: Weekly Hoof – April 18, 2014

April 18, 2014 Spring Pasture Transitioning The first spring sprouts are actually lower in sugars and starch (non-structural carbohydrates or NSC) because they use all that energy to promote their own rapid growth. But horses crave fresh grass and will eat volumes of it, making their overall NSC consumption really high – in fact, dangerously…

BH April 5th – April 7th Update

On Saturday, I bent over to put two feed tubs on the ground. As I was standing back up, one of the horses quickly turned her head and pinned her ears at another horse walking towards her. We bumped heads pretty hard. My nose is broken and my right cheek and right side of my…

BHFER March 31st – April 2nd Update

March 31st We never know when we respond to a call what may be in store for us. On the way to a doctor appointment this morning, I listened to a voice mail from an elderly woman that was crying and in obvious distress. Her message was that her mare’s companion goat had passed and…

Silly Peaches! She doesn’t even like the apple flavored dewormer. Aren’t they just beautiful? They are all doing better by the day. They are happy horses – that makes me very happy.

BH March 15th, 2014 Update

I wish all year was like this. Not too hot, not too cool. Not muggy. Just plain beautiful. Well, the warm temps were back today after a few nights of cold weather. But the flies and gnats are back too. Kamanchee snoozing after breakfast. He’s such a sweet, sweet boy. He is looking for a…

BH February 27, 2014 Update

This is what is called a "1/2 pasture bale" of hay. We’ve bought many and they have ranged from about 592 lbs up to 915 lbs. They are great – the horses can’t pig out on them. We do have to check for metal rings that hold them together a couple of times a day….
