We are so proud of our Lil Bit

Lil Bit is coming along soooo well.
We are so proud of the improvements he has made.
Notice no more goat hairs on his face?
He still has a long way to go, but he is starting to socialize well with the other horses (something he did not do well when he got here), and is allowing us to touch him more and more without fear.
He is pictured here with his mate, Tonka.
He is set to have another lesson with Erin Murphy of Equestrian Partners Inc next week. He still has a scratching issue, which we belive is due to fungus so his daily bath with anti-fungal wash continues!
Deb and I took another trip to UC Davis Vet Center today. Anyone who has dealt with a melting ulcer of the eye will know what we have been through. So not only did I have to put Handsome Jack down on Saturday, after the long morning Deb and I headed out to Davis to take care of her horse Repo's eye. The whole story with gruesome pictures and the medication schedule tomorrow. BITS wants to know, did you ride your horse today?

  1. God bless Lil Bit! Hope you continue on your road to recovery! And, yes, I worked with my mare today. I didn't ride but we worked showmanship patterns. We haven't done any in a billion years! LOL!
