Congratulations to my big brother CH Revolver who won the County Fair class Fine Harness horse World's Championship earlier this week. Mama and I are sure proud!

One day the great outdoors came in and disrupted my barn time. As I was being tacked up, something whooshed into the crosstie area, fluttered under my chin, and crashed into the wall.
It was a crash landing, kamikaze, baby sparrow. Mom scooped it up and showed it to our border. Poor little guy was lost.

When we returned from our ride, we found an odd sign in the aisle. Mom had gone to the house before she remembered to tell Brita about the toad invasion. They can get underfoot if you don't watch out.

Oh there he is, over by the wall where it's safe. No one wants to step on a toad. They squeak!

Oh No! My Feets!

You know that all this hot dry weather and hard ground had to take it's toll eventually...


My feets hurt

The ground has been like concrete. And the road crew spread rocks on my jogging path. So I have been a little tender footed lately. Not lame, but very short and careful. I pick my way around the rocks and trot uneven on hard ground. My farrier came and looked and said he found a "nasty black spot". I wish I could have seen, but it was on the bottom near my toe. Yup, that's where it hurts.

So Brita ordered some Magic Goo which she spread in my feet. When I put my foot down, is squished out the back. Now I know how people feel when they walk barefoot in mud and it squished between their toes. Ewwwwww......

She patted sawdust on the bottom, and wrapped my hooves to keep me from tracking it all over the barn. Don't my toes look fancy?
They're my Magic shoes.

I feel so sporty!
