It's still cold

Well, it's still cold. Mom's been sick so she doesn't spend too much time with me. She does feed me, Butter, and Tuck grain though. So, everytime we see her truck at the barn, we think it's feeding time. Of course, that's not always the case. I'm real good at pouting. Mom had these orange things for Cinnamon yesterday. She tried to get me to eat one. NO WAY!!! those things look weird. Mom also took me and tied me up and brushed me. That sucked. I had just rolled in the mud and had my punk look perfected and she cleaned it. Not cool. So after she put me back out, I rolled again just to spite her. She'll eventually learn.

Mom did tell me that she's trying to move to California. She said she plans on taking me with her. Told me that it's warm there and I won't have to look like a wooly mammoth during the winter. Said she even has a blanket for me for when I stop growing...

Well, that's all for now.

Freezing Cold

Wow. I know Kentucky is further east than Oklahoma but WOW... -2 here this morning. Makes me wish mom would have taken that job in San Diego and moved me somewhere warm! At least I've got the 2 other yearlings to lay with at night and keep warm and mom does feed us grain. My sister Butter agrees that it's too cold. Here is a picture of Butter from yesterday outside. I wouldn't let mom get another shot of me.

Dec 28, 2008

Well, I decided to colic due to the drastic weather changes. Mom called the vet out in the morning to tube me with electrolytes and mineral oil. I was such a big boy! The vet couldn't believe how well behaved I was for the stomach tube. She said I acted more mature than all those sissy thoroughbred babies! That oil concoction was disgusting going down, but it did make my belly feel better. The vet left and mom left me up in the barn in a stall. I could see my buddies, but couldn't go play with them.

Well, I just rolled and rolled all afternoon. My belly still hurt. The oil wasn't making me feel much better. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. Mom came back out to check on me. She decided to call the vet again. The vet came back out and stuck a catheter in my neck. OUCH!!! That hurt, but I was still brave. They pumped me full of 15 liters of fluids. Mom kept rubbing my ears, so that felt good. I had to stay in the stall over night, but mom made it easier by bringing my buddy into the barn for me so I had company.

Finally, Monday I got turned back out with my friends, and have been fine ever since.
