Some Flecky Love!

 Because... Flecky!!

I did hop on bareback the other day and use him to uber up to the arena and back. The heathens came galloping up behind us so he squirted into a trot. Poor dude. His hind end got left behind a time or two, but he was trying. I love him so much.

oh, and we got "snow". It snowed/sleeted/rained most of the day, but nothing stuck. But we still go "snow" photos. :)

Christmas 2021

 Flecky is doing just fine... just not much to report! He is in four shoes again.. with pads up front. Because he deserves it! And because his soles are too thin so he kept getting abscesses. And turns out, he's SOOOO much happier with his shoes on, so... we'll keep them on. 

He's been doing great otherwise. Just hanging in the pasture. I did hop on Christmas Eve Eve to use him to get to the arena to check it out. He was frisky! But he did trip coming down the hill twice in the hind end. I think his stifle is still giving him troubles. So.... no long trips for us anymore. But that's okay. It was nice to just sit on his back and walk around the pasture. 

And today... today is Christmas!! He's gotten shy with selfies, but... he got plenty of carrots with tops today and he got some apples. It was a nice warm sunshiney day. Unfortunately I took the two heathens to Ashland for a trail ride so he was a little sad to be left behind. But maybe he enjoyed his peace and quiet for a little bit too. :) 

Merry Christmas Fleck!!!

Flecky Uber

 So...  Shame on me.. I haven't posted any updates on Flecky in awhile. He's been doing good. Just trucking along. But he has been rather painful in his feet... he's had a bunch of abscesses and looks pretty ouchy. He's been standing around more and not moving around as much. I was going to x-ray but on the day the vet came out he wasn't too bad, so we just tested for Cushings. Negative. Yahoo! But then he got sore again. So I had Freddie peek and he thought he was super sore in his sole, so... we went ahead and put on shoes with pads. And he felt SOOOOOO much better! Yay! So then a few days later we got x-rays, and... poor guy. He has no sole. Like.... a fourth of what he should have. Fronts and hinds, although he seems so much happier with just front shoes on. So... guess he gets to live in shoes and pads all the way around the rest of his days. He's earned it. 

Which also means that since he now has protection and is feeling better, I'm okay with hopping back on for the occasional ride! Tonight I went to set jumps so I used him as my uber. Hee hee. I missed him. We got to the top of the hill and Funny came gallping up and he went to bucking. hee hee. Don't dump me dude!


I love him so!

Hence.. the photo dump since his last post. ;) 

Oh, and his jaw healed beautifully! So yay for that!

Flecky turns 24!!!

 How on earth is this handsome beasty 24!?!?! 

Man do I love him! I spent the afternoon looking back at photos of us through the years. He's the best! He's done so many wonderful things for me... helped me cross off so many bucket list items...  I'm so glad that I am able to spoil him and let him retire and enjoy his days. 

Love you to the moon and back buddy! I hope you had a good birthday.
