It's Never Ending

You start getting somewhere in one part of your life (aka: getting a horse sold) and something else in your life goes wrong (aka: broken dog)! It really seems to be a never ending cycle.

Ill start with Tolo. The lady loved him and I am allowing her to take him on trial for 30 days. She will have him vetted and as long as all checks out have a nice forever home about an hour away. It is amazing how things seem to work out when you most need it. He was going to have to leave NDF and come home and sit in a pasture at the end of this month. Alanna and I are going to make a long day of hauling ponies on the 2nd. We are going to go pick up Emi first and bring her to Alannas house then take Tolo up to his new house. Alanna and I seem to sell/collect horses around the same times! Either we are both getting one, she is selling and I am getting, or I am selling and she is getting. Its actually pretty creepy how it always works!

Within the first month I got him back



A couple weeks ago. He looks so much better!
Another creepy thing is a weird tie Tolo and my dog Max have. The first time I sold Tolo? Max needed TPLO surgery (equivalent of an acl tear in a person) which cost more then what I sold Tolo for, typical! This time I sell Tolo? Max is non weight bearing on that same leg that he got the TPLO sx on (along with a total hip replacement- same leg). He went in to the vet this afternoon but I have to take him back in the morning after not eating so they can put him under anesthesia to get x-rays. There is nothing worse than watching your animal in pain :( This poor guy has had many problems since he was a puppy and it seems as if the world is working against him physically. Mentally he is the happiest dog out there! He LOVES agility but hasnt been able to really do it because of all his physical problems. I just want my puppy to feel better. Hopefully we can figure out the issue tomorrow (and hopefully it wont involve another $5000 surgery. He has used up his allowance of those!).
My other 4 legged handsome man :)

  3. I hope the trial goes well! It's funny how you and your friend are often buying and selling horses at the same time.
