Cross Your Fingers, Say a Prayer

Just another day at the barn, you know, with horses and deer! I didn't actually see the deer, but I was out walking Izzy on a trail and saw the footprints. Fun times.

Tomorrow is the big day. We re-evaluate Izzy's soundness level and behave accordingly. I'm crossing everything I have right now... She's been looking really solid at the walk and moving forward nicely, so I hope that she gets to go back to regular turnout and at least light work under saddle.



Also, a funny story to share: Izzy's former farrier and I had some ideological disagreements, which resulted in him trimming her hooves and putting on one shoe, then us deciding he was done working on her. I offered to pay him the value of his work so far, but he declined. The new farrier came out and put the other shoe on her. He charged me $25.

Yes folks, I just got front shoes and a trim for $25. Beat that.

  5. Wishing you both well.

    Nope, can't beat $25. Hope the shoes match. I'd hate to think of Izzy in one fashion style on the right and another on the left. *G*

  7. Good on you for doing what's right for your pony. Good farriers that you can trust are worth their weight in gold... I hope this next one fills the bill!

    I know I sure as hell miss the farriers that knew what they were doing. It's really a crapshoot in my area anymore :(

  10. Good for you for sticking up for your girl. Whatever the disagreement was, I hope the new farrier is more on the same page with you.

  11. Way to go on the farrier discount lol. And you go girl for sticking up for Izzy instead of just letting him finish the job. :)

    Keeping my fingers crossed for her!
