Not accepting new clients
Hooves big and small, I trim them all!!! - Trim on 4w schedule - Take hoof pictures across trims to track & show changes - Promptly return phone calls, text messages and emails - Come on time as per trimming schedule - Send trim reminders - Send advanced notices if I need to reschedule a trim for any reason - Send ETAs when driving between multiple appointments - Honest and polite with you and gentle with your critters - Competent, know my limitations; will refer to vet or colleague trimmers / farriers if needed -------------------- -- Trimming according to The Welz System of Trimming (http://www.hoofhelponline.com/infosys.html) with James Welz as my hands-on mentor (http://www.hoofhelponline.com/infojy.html) I keep all of my clients' horses on regular 4w trim schedule, track their appointments and send reminders. I keep meticulous records for all clients' horses, including pictures of their feet. I pay taxes on everything you pay me, including tips and I will provide a receipt if you so desire. I am very much "pro-pony" - if there is anything that worries me about the horse, I will tell you as it is my JOB to tell you and I will provide information on how to address the situation. If I do not know something, I will tell you that as well and will research it for you or refer you to people who can help. I will work with "difficult" horses provided both the horse and the owner work with me - I expect to be informed about horse's history, triggers for the behavior and anything else of interest. I may charge for any extra time needed.

Hubby attempted to shock & awe me by presenting this segment of John Oliver show about Turkmenistan president and his love for Akhal-Teke horses. Apparently the guy loves the breed and owns like, a 10% of their world population. He breeds them and rides them and writes books and poetry about them and raises golden statues of himself riding an Akhal-Teke.
Unfortunately, it all fell on deaf ears. I was not shocked or awed. The guy runs a totalitarian dictatorship. Alright, we have many of those. And he is a weirdo, but we have many of those, too. BUT he is doing a wonderful job promoting a breed that might have disappeared altogether otherwise. And many a horse person would do the same had they have the means.
The part about horses starts at 6 min 20 seconds and then resumes at 20 min 40 seconds and is really, really something.

This elderly horse with chronic arthritis became more and more difficult to trim, especially in the last year. Dr. Jeremy Frederick and I were granted permission to harvest the fore limbs for scientific and educational purposes, for which we are both very grateful to the owners. These photos show the process and what arthritic changes we found, primarily in the carpus, articular and periarticular.

EOTRH is such a painful condition but because it develops slowly over time, it can be difficult for owners to appreciate the extent of disease. I will post the radiograph from this case in comments - sadly facebook doesn't let you post pictures and videos together now? Even if you know nothing about dental radiographs, one can see massive infection of bone and tooth roots. These horses almost without exception always feel better after affected teeth are removed. Early intervention is important and we can often save some teeth is the disease is addressed early.
We will be flying. I need to take my cats in the cabin with me. So we bought carriers and started practicing.
I am stumped and perplexed. Apparently, my cats will do just about ANYTHING for the right treat. The treat gets thrown into a carrier, cat enthusiastically gets in, carrier is zipped up while the cat is munching, and that's that. No hissy fit, no nothing. Just a little concerned when carried around outside, because they never were in front of the house. Huh ... But then, I can teach a 1,200lbs horse to give me his feet and behave in exchange for treats. I just expected the cats to be more ... difficult. This could not have possibly been any more anti-climactic.
That's all folks. :( I just handed over my last horse, little Stormy, to a colleague.
We are moving to Canada on June 18th, 2019. We bought a house in Mississauga. It's a perplexing little house, called "back split 4". It means that it has "half-floors", 6 steps up or 6 steps down, and has 4 levels - ground floor, 2 levels "down" and 1 level up, with "butterfly roof" - apparently, these were all the rage in the 70ties. The weirdest thing ever. Painted inside like The Simpsons house and I love everything about it. And it has this thing called "central vac". Basically there is a big, bad vacuum cleaner in the basement connected to all these tubes in the walls - there is an outlet or two in each room, you carry around the house a hose with vacuum brush, plug it in and voila! vacuum the room, then unplug it and go to the next one. All the debris end up in a big bucket in the basement. And that central vac REALLY, REALLY SUCKS 🤣

Afternoon rounds - This is baby Waylon at his 4th trim. His feet are finally free of all ingrown/overlaid bar and false sole. Owner says that he feels better and moves better, no lameness, no soreness. She put lots of work into teaching the boy manners and he was very polite.
🤣 We found out today that baby Waylon is a REAL BOY. He was so relaxed and so happy munching on treats that he dropped his pen*s and I looked ... looked closer ... and pointed to two, quite impressive boy bits - "Wasn't he supposed to be gelded?". Owner looked, then looked closer, then we both laughed and concluded that it must have been really cold during previous trims and otherwise (it was) for he hid his balls very successfully for all this time. Now the proud owner has an opinionated colt on her hands and says she'll be calling a vet the first thing Monday morning. Oh boy.

This is a picture of an enterolith discovered during colic surgery in the colon of a horse. These masses are usually composed of ammonium magnesium phosphate (struvite). They almost always form around a foreign body a horse ingests, such as a nail, piece of wood or a piece of rope. We occasionally find these during colic surgeries in Kentucky, although they more commonly found in horses in California. Arabians, Morgans, American Saddlebreds and donkeys are the breeds we most commonly find these in. Surgery is usually required to remove large enteroliths that occlude the colon causing the horse abdominal pain. You can see in the picture that this enterolith is round. If you find an enterolith with a flat side (not round) you must be suspicious during surgery that there is more than one enterolith. The prognosis for horses with enteroliths is considered good and our patient is doing well in the immediate post-operative period.

Today the BLM is proud to announce the new Adoption Incentive Program! Now you can earn up to $1,000 by adopting an eligible untrained wild horse or burro from the BLM. Starting March 12, all untrained wild horses and burros up for adoption will be eligible for an incentive of up to $1,000 ($500 within 60 days of adoption and $500 at time of title eligibility). A $25 adoption fee is required.
The BLM is currently faced with an overpopulation of wild horses and burros that is threatening the health of our wild herds and the public rangelands on which they roam. At the same time, the BLM continues to care for approximately 50,000 unadopted and unsold animals every year, at considerable cost to taxpayers. Last year, more than 4,600 wild horses and burros were placed into private care – 12% more than FY2017, 54% more than FY2012 – though population growth continues to outpace private care. By offering a financial incentive for adoption, the BLM can reduce costs to taxpayers and find more good homes for animals under our care.
All facility and animal welfare requirements still apply. Find more information: blm.gov/adoption-incentive
Image text: Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Incentive Program. $500 within 60 days of the adoption date + $500 within 60 days of the title date = $1,000. Untrained animals only. Additional restrictions apply. Learn more at blm.gov/adoption-incentive.
