Cookie and Porter 2nd Set


06/30/17, Thursday Dr. Porter (PHD Veterinary Services) was out yesterday to reassess Cookie and to do another set of x-rays on her front feet.  She is in very good spirits,  her appetite is great, and she still adores attention!  Another set of x-rays indicated that there has been a bit more rotation.  Also, she is…

Cookie’s Eye – Not Good News

Earlier this year, Cookie appeared to be depressed – she just wasn’t herself. With her history of cancer, well, I was just concerned. Dr. Specht ran some blood work and some values were all over the place. Then Cookie developed chronic imflammation in her left eye and was put on eye medications which didn’t seem…

Cookie Mangan biopsy


February 12th, 2017 Cookie’s eye is worse. Dr. Mangan will be checking it tomorrow when he comes to hopefully, remove the lavage from Magic’s eye.

Cookie’s Cancer, an Adoption, & Updates on Many

April 10th, 2014 Dr. Porter examined Cookie’s eye – the cancer has progressed. We will be taking her to UF – it’s highly possible that she will lose her left eye. Sisco’s front right was x-rayed – he’s been on and off lame. He walked pretty good for Dr. Porter yesterday but we did x-rays…

Updates on Many Horses, Volunteers, and Poker Ride

February 1st – 3rd, 2014 Joanne Kelley and Elaine visited yesterday – it was so nice to meet them! Putting names to faces and introducing the horses is something I truly enjoy! I probably talked way too much! LOL Joanne wanted to get slimmed by the famous Aaleyah Belle – well, she got it ok!…


BH 11/24/12 Update – lots of photos

November 24th, 2012… We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was beautiful here. But the nice day closed with temperatures down into the high 30’s yesterday morning. The babies and seniors were blanketed and comfortable. We’ll have to break out a few more blankets though – looks like it’s going down to freezing tonight….
