Twilight Crossed Rainbow Bridge

1 am update: The little filly that I named Twilight has crossed Rainbow Bridge – she was just too far gone. In her final hours she knew she was loved. She knew kind and caring hands. I’m so sorry we couldn’t help her – she was just a baby – likely just over a year…

URGENT: Young Paint Down in BHFER Neighborhood!

10:14 PM: Theresa got a call tonight from someone in the area we have never met, stating an unknown horse wandered onto his unfenced property. When the owners checked her, she was too weak to get up. The horse is young, a one on the Henneke Scale, and a rack of bones. Theresa is on-site…

Mini Mare Update!

The little mini mare arrived today while the podiatrists were here. Watching her try to back off the trailer was horrible. She got her left foot stuck between the floor and the ramp in that little drop down space you can see in the below picture just behind her back left foot. When her left…

BH update for the last few days…

We hope everyone had a really nice weekend. It was very busy here but a lot got done. We had a few extra helping hands which helped a lot! Narissa has put a little weight on but right now we’d be happy for her to just maintain until we can get her feet more healthy….

My birthday today…

I had a really nice birthday today! I did work all day but the weather was perfect and I worked outside with the horses – not at my computer so I loved it! I wanted to ride for a few minutes but the day was over before I knew it. Our kids came home late…

Narissa’s x-rays and Gentleman

I’ve been putting this update off since this afternoon. I’m sorry to have to share bad news. Narissa’s right front has rotated and she is a sinker. We don’t know how long she’s been this way. She’s 25+ years old and certainly has a love for life – she’s a survivor, IMO. We will try…

BHFER Update 03/20/12

This past weekend was a really good weekend for BH for a few reasons. There were very successful fundraisers and some horses went to new homes! Three Paso Fino’s left for their new homes over the weekend. Two went together on Saturday. And yesterday, Monday, two mares left for their new home. I just love…

Narissa Update 03/17/12

Narissa had a good day today – Pam body clipped her and then she got another bath. She’s being terribly spoiled and everyone loves her! Her feet were trimmed yesterday. She seems to be walking better but is ouchy. We put booties on her back feet – they were pretty infected and they are being…

BHFER Update 03/16/12

Hi everyone – I am sorry I’m overdue for an update but I came home Wednesday and went to bed with a horrible stomach/flu bug Not sure I’m over it 100% yet but I’m trying – I have too much to do to stay sick. We have a new rescue that was picked up yesterday…

Sayan – a bittersweet day…

Some bittersweet news to start the day. Sayan, a handsome and sweet 17 year old Arabian gelding that has been with us for about 2 years, is going to his forever home today. He will only be about 20 minutes away and will be keeping company to a lonely mare. Congratulations Sayan – we love…

BH Update 03/06/12

An update on what’s going on here – a lot! The weather has been nuts. The winds have been horrible but we have no right to complain – many have lost lives and so much in the storms throughout the Midwest. Our prayers are with them. Yesterday was the first day in many that it…

BHFER Update 02/28/12

It’s staying busy here – as usual. It’s still busy at the Paso farm too. A little update on both… Beenie Barbaro arrived at the rescue today! He made his way first to visit Legacy who has an ouchy front left foot. Dr. Ryan examined Legs today and it’s likely an abscess. I remember holding…

Paso Update 02/26/12

It was a very productive day at the Paso farm yesterday. We got a couple mares into the barn and got them settled in. I called Dr. Joan Gariboldi out to treat one of the mare’s (Maraca) that has been in for a few days that appeared to be trying to colic and she had…

BH Update 02/24/11

Well, our day started out finding HighTower in the tack/feed room! The giveaway was Little E’s butt hanging out of the workshop door and High Tower was nowhere in sight. He’d only been in there for a couple of minutes – I’d just gone to the house from the barn. The cat wanted to follow…

Hooficures And More – Update 02/22/12

02/22/17 Update Fabio was out today to do some hooficures. Classy still doesn’t like anyone touching her back feet. Touch her legs anywhere and she is fine but touch her feet and oh my gosh she’ll kick you from here to Texas! Legacy, Silver Belle and Aaleyah Belle were good. But guess who didn’t want…

Update 02/21/12

Sorry, not much of an update today. I’m feeling very much under the weather but did get out long enough to meet the vet at the Paso farm for her to pull coggins on a few of the mares today. I did not go through any paperwork today – none. I’ve had little of a…

BHFER Update 02/19/12

We hope everyone had a great weekend. It was busy here, as usual. The winds today were horrible – anything that could blow away, did. The temps tonight are going down into the low 40’s so we had to blanket some. Here are some weekend pictures. Rolling out some big hay bales. There were more…
