    April was SUCH a good sport.... had a GREAT QH show last weekend.S he is really a TOTALLY different horse since being treated for lymes. (starting another month of Doxy today, as levels still "high", even though they are about 2/3 what they were)

    yesterday, she started learning how to be the "Ponier".

    I started with Peyton, as he is Mr. Agreeable. Well, I also discovered he is also pretty darn lazy.... I started with just a leadrope....
    had to get off and get a chain... April waited patiently.. probably thankful I was getting a chain for the lazy bum...

    2nd try.... still lazy, and someone had a hissy fit with the chain.... we managed to walk and trot at our first lesson

    "oh god, not the OTHER one too?"

    Indy is also a lazy bum, but didn't have to resort to the chain.

    I know, she's not THAT much smaller than April! I know i'm going to have to invest in a 3 step mounting block. lol

    Both Indy and Peyton are looking more gorgeous by the day.
    Did Indy not get the memo that she is a qh and not supposed to grow quite so tall?

    If you don’t have success with Doxy, go with minocycline. It works much better for Lyme!

    2 months of the Doxy brought it from almost 20,000 to a little over 7000.

    Will see where she is after another month. The change in her is simply amazing

    I'm glad April is doing so much better!

    Both being a pony horse and being ponied are good for them, you are doing a good thing for them all.

    Very nice horses you have, I am always impressed when you post pictures of them.
