Spring Cleaning

Saturday my Ulcergard arrived and I stared Boca on his treatment yesterday.
28 days of wrestling this down his throat should be entertaining!
 I really need to get a friendly media person to get some new video and photos for me.
Believe it or not, in the last few weeks, our canter has started to improve!
I tried to get a few pics of Boca cantering on the longe, but everytime I took my eye off him, he broke to a trot.

Poor lil red horse

So hard. Much horse.
In other news, fellow gelding owners can appreciate that this Sunday was, ahem, Spring Cleaning... if you know what I mean.

I was grooming Boca's belly on Saturday and decided I should probably check the state of affairs up there.  WHOO BOY. Crusty critter!

My new plans for Sunday suddenly included everyone's favorite task - sheath cleaning. Luckily for me, Boca is pretty good about the process. I have heard stories that some geldings will try to kick your head off your shoulders.

Lastly, I will leave you with this cuteness:

A family of foxes has made a den in a woodpile at the back of our farm. This little guy was the boldest of his 5 or 6 sisters and brothers and came out of the den to have his picture snapped!


  1. Glad to hear you're making progress! :-)

  2. Oh yes...I have two geldings that require "spring cleaning" soon too. Not my favorite part of horse ownership for sure!

  3. omg that fox!!! too cute!! we had a fox family living next to our arena one spring and they were just the most playful adorable little critters! glad Boca's doing well too - hopefully he likes the ulcergard :)

  4. Yay progress!! One of the best choices I made was to train (or counter-condition) Murray for sheath cleaning. Now I just do a little whenever he drops, give him a cookie, and all is fairly well.

  5. Yes, Tucker is one of those geldings that will kick your head right off your shoulders. It's the only thing I need drugs for. He says those are his privates.

    And that fox is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Love!

  6. I need to do some spring cleaning. I have to Ace Simon, but otherwise he behaves fine.

  7. So much adorable foxiness ♡♡♡
    Glad Boca is doing better *thumbsup*

  8. I always make the fiancé do the "spring cleaning" :) That fox might possibly be the cutest thing ever!
