It's a Christmas Miracle!

McKenna's vet check didn't go so well. Their vet said she tested positive with the hoof testers on her front feet. And in his report the vet said it was possible navicular and he recommended X-rays. They didn't want to put that money into her and backed out.

 I was a little pissed that he went right to a possible worst case scenario when it could be a dozen different things. I know her feet are super soft right now from all the rain, and my farrier said almost all the horses he's done lately have been that way and some have been tender footed because of it. She doesn't look lame when I lunge her and feels fine under saddle. I'm also not super fond of this vet as I used him years ago and he butchered Phoenix's teeth so I'm trying not to hold that against him.

I dropped her price because I WANT HER GONE and even posted to Instagram and FB that I was willing to give her away. My mom, who has offered to help finance my next pony, told me to give her away and not worry about the money.  They saw the post, and thought it over, and said they'd take her home if I was serious about giving her away. I thought it over and I know they're a good home and considering I got her for free I thought it was fitting that I pass her on for free. So they'll call me tomorrow and we'll work the finer point out.

I'm just so happy to have her gone. As much as I like her on the ground and her personality and her talent but I absolutely dislike riding her. I don't have to dread riding her or feel guilty for not riding her anymore.


  1. Yah! I'm glad you are getting things figured out and I can't wait to see what kind of horse you find.

  2. Glad it's working out. I know the feeling, so happy for you :)

  3. Glad things are working out and looking up.
    Roll on 2016 - may it bring you happiness and a shiney new poneh

  4. Ugh, I'm so sorry about the vet check, but I'm glad that things are working out so you can take the next step <3

  5. how frustrating - hopefully it all worked out tho and that they ended up taking her!!!
