Hello Dear Humans! Well, if you read my human Ma Leueen’s blog posts you will know this has been a very hard week. She got sick. She colicked. Now, if you are a human who knows horses you will know that is serious. If you are not familiar with horses, and the dangers of colic, let me enlighten you. We horse were designed to be out grazing and eating 24/7 but that is not how we live now so our digestive systems sometimes act up. We get upset in our intestines and unlike you humans we cannot regurgitate whatever it is that has upset us and sometimes we get gas and then the gas makes our intestines like a balloon.At best it painful and needs veterinary assistance. At worst we have to be cut open and the vets try to fix it. Sometimes they can’t. Colic is a major cause of death for horses. So I was pretty worried when Ma Leueen had a stomach upset that sent her to the humans vet hospital.. But she let me know she was ok.
I was so pleased to see her when she came to the barn. Coach Belinda was riding me and so I showed Ma Leueen some of my best extended trot. She came again the next day and assistant Lynsey took me over a jump. Yes,a real jump! Today Ma Leueen got on me, her first time on my back since she was sick. I took her for a nice walk in the forest and I was very well behaved so as not to upset her stomach again.
I knew she took some videos and I asked her if we could put some music with them for my blog post. She let me pick out the pieces of music. I hope you will like my selections. I am quite pleased with them myself.
Here is the extended trot with Belinda. I chose some dramatic music for this.
And now for jumping with Lynsey and me.! Military music for this.
And finally my trail ride with Ma Leueen. I am so happy she is back and well again.
I’d love to hear from you!
