Lots to post about. A wonderful Subi horse. Less fear. An incident of suspected choke. A lame horse. My hate of abscesses. But, instead…
I’d like to introduce the newest member of my herd!
At the end of July we purchased a mini horse for Subi. He needed a friend so that Batt could have a job and I was sick of being scared to death that Subi would hurt himself while Batt worked. So, my farrier suggested a mini. My vet suggested a mini. Friends suggested a mini.
Thanks to my ex-landlords minis, I did not want a mini. Those things were evil. But, logic (though probably not common sense) won out and I got a mini.
I spent a month or so searching and found lots of crazy and scary things. Horrific conformation, crazy people, people who stopped communicating, mares in foal, stallions, feral minis. But, then I founds our little man and fell head over heels in love with his picture.
And then I met him and fell deeper in love.
Then he came home and moved into my backyard. Then he called to me when I walked into the house. Love.
The Subi fell in love.
So, without further ado, please meet James Tiberius Harper Horsie aka Jiminy. He’s a 4 year old gelding and completely adorable.
Anyway, Subi adores Jiminy, Batty tolerates Jiminy. But, I love my boys.
