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.
