An odd day off from the barn.
There’s been A LOT of barn time lately. Not that I am complaining. Today is finally a day for something else. I’m sure both La Prima and Jaworzno won’t be missing me, puttering around in their pastures all day instead.
Well, they might miss the fly spray. The barn is on Fly Predator’s this year, I just spread out the first bag with next shipment coming in less than four weeks. We should be at a super low for flies as the number of horses is low, (Only 6 now!) all manure has been spread out to dry, we will have some traps, maybe some sticky tape, powder applied regularly inside the barn. But they’re spoiled and still need their spray.
I feel very lucky to be at such a nice barn and to get to see these horses so often.
Sharing some nice shots from Tamara of Tamara Watson Pet Photography today, and in all the next several posts here on the blog.
(Although a few of them posted later have been heavily butcher-cropped by me and ruined her artistic composition. Sorry Tamara! I know I’m terrible.)
Well anyway, come back and check in over the next week/weeks to see them all.
So grateful to have some nice pictures of Jaworzno – he’s so handsome and deserved his own photo shoot! Tamara did a wonderful job capturing both him and La Prima, and my doggie (!), all in a very relaxed manner – such a fun morning.

On another note, I am doing a lot of research on IR, EMS, and Cushings now. A ton of information available, some outdated, some controversial, contradictory, or overly dramatic. What’s most interesting is how much more has been discovered about it all in just the last decade. If you have a specific, preferably accredited, source you’d like to share with me I’d be all ears! I will share some more thoughts on this later and hope to have had a discussion with my vet in about a month or so too.
“Fascination with horses predated every other single thing I knew. Before I was a mother, before I was a writer, before I knew the facts of life, before I was a schoolgirl, before I learned to read, I wanted a horse.”

Have a wonderful start on the weekend!
