    Well, I spent my entire day with horses. First the boys where I got a lovely nail through my foot. Thank God I had my tetanus a couple years back. And thankfully I found the board with the nail before the boys did.
    This afternoon was spent grooming the girls and Spirit. He is so happy to not be wearing a halter. And he is super easy to catch. When I took it off the other day he looked up at me with a sparkle in his eye and nuzzled me. He whinnies every time I come out. Falling in love fast with that little guy. Going to trim his hooves tomorrow. :fl Never have I ever done a mini horse....
    Speaking of hooves.... had a visit with an old fella who has thrush and beginning stages of founder. His toes were long and I had to trim back his bars so he sits back off his toes. Had to correct the breakaway point and give him a nice point of rollover. His frog should be able to shed itself now but his owner needs to take him off pasture. Not a lot of heat coming off his hoof wall and no bounding pulse so I'm hoping we caught it in time. Could be a grazing muzzle would do the trick....

    Coffee is on. DH was off to work early... lots aches this morning, sincerely hoping I am not getting sick.
    @MatthewsHomestead hopefully they can make use of a dry lot. My Richie is prone to laminitis (foundered 3 years ago)but it's definitely controllable in the dry lot. He does get some limited pasture too. My farrier has had success with her mare who also fights it with a grazing muzzle.

    This is encouraging to hear. I'm not a farrier. But I know the basics enough to barefoot trim. Going back out today to see how the trim is working for him... kids awards day today too....

    I still have a LOT to learn. But I pick things up quick. Biggest thing is remembering to map properly for balance and the breakaway/mustang roll. I Have to map first. Cant just eyeball like the pros.

    I take niacin too. However, my numbers didn't start going down, until I started taking a higher dose of natural thyroid medication (balanced T3 and T4). From what I understand low thyroid can cause elevated cholesterol.
