LOVE my Noconas!!!
I want a new pair of boots pretty soon. Can't decide between some taller lucchese boots or some ariats. I lean more towards Lucchese because they are made in the USA. Noconas are made in Mexico. good boots!
I also want some Fryes. Paige Tall, please.

It's been so long! I'm just not a big summer clothes kinda girl! :)

I like boots, skinny jeans, and cute tops. So here we go again for the winter time!

Shirt: Target  Cami: Walmart? or Target? Jeans: Gap  Shoes: Walmart (on clearance!!)

Sorry for the blurriness, I was in a hurry and my camera wasn't feeling the light! ;)

I was in such a hurry that I forgot to cut the extra string off my knot ties... you don't see that, ok!

Instead of giving away 5 or 6 of my outifts a week... I'm only going to give two. That way I will have enough to last me a while ! And I'm sorry there is only one this time, I decided late last night that I was going to link up. So excited to do this again!

Also, I have lined up the boyfriend to start taking pictures for me.. outside! yay! no more mirror!

Thanks for looking, y'all!! :)

Birthday Boy

The 21st was my Joshua's birthday!

I surprised him with a scavenger hunt around my house to find his present. It was hilarious.



Some of the clues:

"Don't be BLUE, we'll be back in the spring!" (thanks to Linnie!)
                - blue bird houses!
"Your favorite snack! Better race back!" (and he actually did run! ha!)
                - oreos!
"This didn't come from Opie!"
                - Milk!
"Ssssstop by and visit our ssssspecial family member!"
                - Minnie the Snake!

Blair ended up knowing where his present was in the end... It was too cute seeing him run from place to place and animal to animal! Lola and Latch both had clues on their collars; SoBe had a clue on her halter.

So what was his present?!


Concert tickets :)

I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend, Joshua! I love you so much and I can't wait to spend new years eve with Zac Brown!

Hoof Update!

I caught lizzie today and took an update picture of her hoof. For a flashback, you can visit this blog post!

Here is a miniature collage I put together that is a tiny recap:


                 and THIS is what it looks like today!         

                                 Day 1                                                                        Today!

NO quarter crack. NO funky growths. YES it looks perfect! (Minus her needing a trim some kind of badly!)
But, Her coronary band looks amazing! You can see how much it has actually grown out since she got hurt. That funky looking band and below where her hoof looks retarded is the injury line.

I'm ecstatic about this. I thought I was going to have a lame horse for the rest of her life. She is only 6 and that would have been devastating. I already lost her brother at the age of 6... I don't need anything to happen to this little mare!

After a lot of hard work and wrapping, I have successfully gotten my first injured hoof healed! All I know is Furazone is some amazing stuff.

I'll be back soon.

It has been a crazy month! 

Nursing school has me completely booked.

I had a Psychology test today, a huge research paper due yesterday, clinical (1 1/2 hour away) all day tuesday, clinical all day monday in that same town, and... it goes on.

Josh and I are driving to the blue grass state this weekend to pick up at least 13 little pigs! We are getting 2 for him.. the rest are for others that are wanting pigs for their kids. I think it will be a fun little trip.

I have been trying to ride horses as much as I can. I have been trying out a new saddle that someone brought into my dad's business to trade him... 
What cha think?

Josh and I have been hanging out with my friend/neighbor Lexie and her boyfriend Matt. Riding horses, watching movies, and going to haunted houses. Oh yes. I love haunted houses! They are so not scary. ;)



My best friend came into town on the 14th/15th. I was SO excited to see her! She helped me out tremendously with Blair's 3rd Old McDonald birthday party. Josh did too! We loaded up SoBe, Donkey, and Opie, along with 2 baby goats from my neighbor! It was so much fun.

I still can't believe we got Opie on that trailer! He did so good!

We also went to the Georgia  National Fair. That is always fun!!! She also refreshed my trimming skills. There is so much that I forgot! Then we ended the weekend with a good horse ride! :) 

Love you Rhi!!!

Now I am going to bed. I have a date with a 1 year old in the morning at 7:45.
Let's see if I can remember how to babysit! ;)

October.

October from day 1 has not been a good month.

My MeMa passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. I still can't imagine her being gone, because she has always been there. Always.

I loved her very, very much. Along with everyone else that had even laid eyes on her. She was such an amazing woman.

I walked my friend, Leslie, outside tonight after catching up on a television show. Revenge. If you haven't watched it, watch it. Well, only if you like that kind of thing.

When we walked outside, I heard pounding of hooves.

Lately, I have been having a few issues, so I told her goodbye and walked up to the horse pasture.

It's 1 AM, the moon is shining so that I can see everything clearly. There are tons of stars in the sky and my girls are right up by the house.

Those hooves were Sir Flint's. Who else?! I mean, did I really think different!

I unlatched the gate to my girls pasture and visited with SoBe and then Lizzie.

It was so very peaceful. No noise, no people, nothing but silence and my beautiful creatures.

I just thought... How blessed am I to have such a wonderful family, home, friends... and horses.

God can create some beautiful things. Moonlight, stars, and horses (all combined) is so beautiful.

Yeah, that may sound weird to you. But, that was the calmest I have felt in days. Just being able to lay my head on my horse's neck and look at the stars and just breathe...

Thank you, God, for creating such beautiful creatures. And thank you for giving me such an amazing family.

Pictures

Enjoy!

Love that face.
and that puppy.

This is what I love. Actually, I adore. 
I adore that brown and white head even more.

 
New roommate.
Still nameless. I wanted to name him Presley. Josh objected.
Hey... wait a minute! It is MY roommate! Presley it is. Shh. Don't tell Josh.

This is the face I come home to everyday.
MOM!!!

There is that lovely face again!

The sunrise that joined me while I put Lizzie out to pasture every morning.

One day there was a donkey in my front yard.
I have ALWAYS wanted a donkey that lived in my front yard!!
Mama Jan does not think it is that great.
She sees it as donkey poo living in the front yard.

This is how gorgeous it is at my house all the time.
Except, the grass isn't that green anymore. 
We need rain.

Lola.
I put this photo on facebook the other day to show everyone how well she puts her eyeliner on  and how well she forgets to paint on her left eyebrow. :)

Flint trying out his new 'ears' on our ride this morning!
They work well keeping those nasty deer flies off!

I took this picture this morning... about a week ago this fire happened about 50 feet from our farm. All because of one cigarette. I was in class when I got a call from my neighbor who NEVER calls me unless there is an emergency. So, I automatically thought, oh no one of my horses is out or cows or something...  I jump out of my desk and go out into the hall and he says Molly, there is a fire heading towards your land and I wanted to let your dad know. I tell him thanks and immediately call my moms friend that works as a volunteer firefighter (she's got one of those cool radios), she didn't answer so I called my dad. Thank goodness he just happened to be at home!!! He went and checked on it and the fire department had just gotten there and gotten it out. 

I was so worried about that fire taking off and swallowing our land up... but thank goodness it didn't!!  

So... don't throw your cigarette butts out!!! We haven't had any rain you dodo brains!!

Where's your tail?!

This is a question that I ask Lola daily.  She quickly responds letting me know exactly where her little nub is!

I don't know why I felt impelled to share this with you, but I did!

I have successfully gotten my horses foot well and she is no longer in the stall. Thank the Lord!

I LOVE having a horse in the stall and I very may well decided to put her in there a few nights out of the week. I have had zero problems catching that little mare ever since she was stalled for her injury. Also, I like actually having something to do with my horses besides look at them (when I'm not busy with school!). I don't mind cleaning out the stall, her water bucket, and filling her hay bag. I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't miss the wrapping her foot everyday with a new bandage though, but I miss her being at the barn.

Here are some before and after pictures of her foot just for my records! And, of course to show you what I was dealing with! ;)
I am aware that her feet are hoof disasters X 10. She is such a little twit when it comes time to catch her for her trims that she doesn't get trimmed because she is a twit. Did I already say that?! She's a twit. Me trying to catch her did this to her, so maybe she learned her lesson.

But she is so much better now that she lived in a stall for a month!

Day 1:  July 31


on this day, I was clueless as what to do... I don't remember what I did. I know I washed it with an iodine scrub, globbed some furazone on some gauze that I had in my 1st semester nursing kit, and then wrapped it with some vetwrap and teal duck tape. yes, teal! :) All I had.

Day 2: August 1
Lamina is seen behind the broken part...
I unwrapped it, washed it scrubbed it, globbed it, and wrapped it back up.
Nice and pink, no infection, so far we are golden.

Took pictures to my vet this same day and he told me I was doing everything that I could and to continue to use Furazone. Pshew. Cause that's all I had.

Day 4: August 3

By this day, I got my shipment from Jeffers and was ready to do some serious wrapping!! I also obtained a whole 'rectangle' of 4X4s from my vet. I scrubbed, dabbed the furazone on, put a 4x4 gauze over the furazon, wrapped with a gauze wrap, then vet wrap and then duck tape. This is what it looked like everyday. I kept pressure off the coronet band and made sure that it would stay on with pressure on the heels. And if you don't know jack about horse hooves, I found this awesome website so that you can study up on their parts! :)

Actually, the duck tape is a little extreme in this picture because I started not going up so high, but you get the picture!

Day 5: August 4
Lamina isn't as pink, but still no injection. unwrap, clean, wrap!

Day 7: August 8
A really good picture of the crack, and how the coronet band is releasing the hoof that is going to fall off.

Day 14: August 15

I got a little brave and cut the broken piece back with my nippers... Tried to take the weight off of it so it wouldn't press into the coronet band.

Day 21: August 22

On this day I got REALLY brave and cut the whole entire piece back. She had gotten use to me messing with her hoof so much and she wasn't tender anymore. I exposed the lamina, but left the heel. The heel is 'floating' so that the hoof can grow back at a faster rate. You can see the new growth already starting at the coronet band (the orange at the top that looks like the rest of her 'normal' hoof). The piece I cut off was pushing up against the coronet band and making the new growth grow funny, so I had to get rid of that. I wrapped it one more time, stalled her, and then turned her out. The next day I unwrapped it and left it unwrapped.

The lamina hardened up and her sole did as well. The sole that had built up over the past few months is finally shedding off. She will have a trim very soon!! :) Now that she can be caught!

 I am still very angry that this happened, because she will have problems with this hoof for the rest of her life... when the coronet band is injured like hers was, it never grows back the same. Oh well, things happen I guess!
