A Mikey Fix...

... for all you addicts who have been missing her so badly.
Here she is demonstrating the flamingo dance... er, um, I mean she is holding a recalcitrant Fred while Wade does the easy part ;)
Look closely at Fred's expression - even with just one eye showing, you can tell he is plotting! What's that saying? "Payback's a b*tch!"

Hurry up Wade!!
Trooper is studying Fred's method way too intently! Trooper, this is NOT how you are to behave for the farrier!!!
And for you dyed-in-the-wool addicts, here is a Mercy fix as well: modeling the latest in..... HATS?????
Hope you enjoyed our visit from The Horseshoeing Housewife (and crew -sorry Wade, not that you aren't important... but, well, Mikey is just - MIKEY!)

Well there she is!! I feel jipped, I am only a few months old to this whole blog thing.I didn't get to know Mikey very well, before she went away! Tell her I hope all is well with her!
Also I don't need another pup, but I will keep an ear open! What color is the pup? any special traits? (Sit, stay, eat the bad people!) He! He!

Hey that's pretty cool-we get to see Mikey in action(and Wade too-sort of). Don't they make an awesome team!!

Just wanted to let you know-that if your Paint Mare is in good health-there is no reason why you shouldn't breed her. Twenty-two is not that old anymore and with the good feed options and vitamin mineral supplements available-they come through it fine.
I really am considering breeding Woofer again next year-but I made a boo-boo on my comment...Woof is 24 this year, if I breed her back next year-she will be 26 when she foals again.
Considering the vet thought she was about 10-I don't think age is really against her. Mom and I have pretty much come to the conclusion that the reason she lost the foal the year before is because we let her get too fat. She was ginormous, even after she foaled. The vet agreed that all of that extra weight is probably why her placenta tore. So-we learned a hard, but valuable lesson. There is good shape and then there is way too good of shape.
