Trimming, vaccinating & de-worming

15 more horses are vaccinated for the year - yeah! We trimmed and dewormed at the same time, so we're almost caught up from our winter break.

Sad day

We were leaving today and found Topaz dead by the road. She looked like she was sleeping or taking a nap. We did a 'field' exam - no blood or trauma, no signs of rolling or other colic symptoms - a mystery death.

The only thing we noticed was she had a bit of pooled blood in her eye and inside her mouth. We're not sure if it was from falling, a kick to the head or aneurism.

It at least didn't look like she suffered. RIP Topaz you will be missed.
