Ollie's In Good Shape

Ollie had his scope today and he seems to be just fine and normal there.  His teeth seemed to be in good shape and there are no early signs of EPM.  In a nut shell, he just eats too fast and swallows too big of gulps.  When I water down his feed into a soupy consistency then he has no problems.  So that's what we're going to do from now on.  Easy enough!  

In other developments, my husband felt badly about my riding britches so after attending an open house to meet Havre de Grace, he stopped the car at my favorite tack store in Lexington - Wise Choice!   I have a pair of new white show breeches and two pairs of full seat breeches for schooling that I bought on consignment.  Great prices!  Great products!    I'm ready to sign up for the next Snowbird Show in December!  Woo hoo!

Havre de Grace at her meet and greet hosted by Vinery and Fox Hill Farm.
 I'm also excited to see that the Paulick Report picked up the War Horse story that Fran Jurga wrote.  Very cool! 


  1. Yay for Ollie! So glad there's nothing wrong with the silly boy except greed. :-) You could look into something like this as well: I knew they made hay slow feeders but wondered about grain, so I went looking. But I guess wetting his food is cheap and pretty easy.

    That HdG girl is just GORGEOUS. Such a feminine, lovely head.

  2. Our horses have been choking too, keep in mind there are always a lot more chokings around the full moon. I think the change in temperature might be affecting the way they are able to swallow. Never hurts to add water!
