New Year, exciting 2012

Hoping for all of our plans to go well for the upcoming year. NBHA Belize will be our biggest project and many changes to the BEA are in the works as well.

AND...our own lilttle guest house is in the planning stages and hopefully started after my return in April! YEAY!!! A real bed and a real kitchen, ohhh, and a real bathroom and...sigh...

More progress

After two months of cleaning and bandaging daily, this filly is gonna be fine! There was a 1/2 inch bone area on lateral side and a Proud Flesh product had been used inappropriately on a fresh wound...the lil blue shreds are the remains of the latex stuff that had smeared all over it. Owner was diligent and took over all wrapping/cleaning after three weeks and has done a remarkable job.

A few things going well...

This stud foundered probably over a yr and half ago when he was brought in to country...the hauler has killed many horses and foundered a bunch...then foundered again after he hit a post after being run into the rail at a race track. But again, months ago. Owner to put him back on the track...Uhm yeah no promises there.

he is a much happier boy with his Combi pads on
This little mare had hung her foot up somehow and abcessed 3/4s around and was sloughing her sole, heels and much of her wall. Would not bear weight at all. Now will bare enough to not have to rock onto her hinds to move and we seem to be creating new sole and heels, keeping fingers crossed for rull recovery.
Hopefully will be able to do a real trim next month. She was in so much pain it was all I could do to just try to get some balance after all dead hoof was removed
