SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






There are a bunch of events in town today… but I think I might buy and plant a few young trees.  Not sure.  I’m having trouble deciding where I want to plant the trees because I haven’t decided where I want my mini barn/grooming/farrier/sick bay shelter to be placed… and trees are permanent.

But, it is very fun to create a new way of being with my horses, so it is a fun challenge!

HERE WE GO!

Reminds me of a better version of the decks on my house in Oregon. I love decking.

Probably photoshopped, but gorgeous

Who wore it better?

Yup. It rained today. My horses look like this again.

Does anyone know the artist of this one?

Sweet Mammoth Mule.

Yup.

Love this.

Sweet.

This was sent to me as a photo of a dwarf calf who was born recently, but all I could see was the photobomber cow!

Orphaned warthog.

I bet that tongue is rough.

Gorgeous baby.

Agreed. I love Spring!

VULCAN HAD HIS SURGERY!






Do you remember our February Bucket Fund horse, Vulcan?  He was the older gentleman that was found very underweight, in a junkyard, with a severe wound to his penis.  You can read Vulcan’s story here.

The Horse and Man Group raised the money for his surgery but Vulcan had to wait until he gained at least 150 lbs before he could undergo his surgery.  While he was waiting, and eating, Vulcan had massive antibiotics to quell the infection.

You’ll probably remember this photo…

VULCAN HAD HIS SURGERY!

I had never seen an equine surgery table like this one.  MT had her surgery on a different kind of table that was a tilt table with a winch to place the horses.  Very unsettling to watch.  I don’t know how they got him onto this table, but it looks more gentle.

The photos show Vulcan alert in his stall… then walking to surgery and then during surgery.  I am waiting for his ‘after’ pictures!  Very exciting.

I’m told Vulcan had quite a bit of bleeding and swelling so he had to stay a few more days than expected.  But, he is over the hard part and has come home to rest.

I will post those photos as soon as they arrive!

THANK YOU, Horse and Man Group for allowing Vulcan to heal and live comfortably!  Thank you, Heart of Phoenix, for saving him!

Bright eyed, awaiting his surgery.

Being led to anesthesia

He has gained weight and is much more alert and happy now. His infected penis looks so much better! But the damage was done and he cannot retract it.

Preparation

Isn’t this process amazing. Thank you all for helping him receive the surgery he needed!

Preparing for the actual surgery.

Making sure he was breathing well…

And surgery!

AFTER PICTURES COMING VERY SOON!
