Happy Birthday to Calabar!


Happy Birthday to Calabar!

He's ten today and seems strong and healthy and happy, though he tried to give me a tiny colic scare tonight.

It seems to have passed (pun intended) and he seems like his normal
feisty self. He even fussed at Romeo like usual.

Happy birthday, big, brown, snuggly horse!

Happy birthday! Love his face marking!

Happy belated B-Day to Bar. I hope the colic was only a scare and nothing more. We've been through two bouts of colic (Dozer & Ellie) and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone.

Thanks, Kate and BR!

I love his marking, too. One tiny spot of white on his dark brown self-and a swirl!

The colic seems to have been mild, probably gas, and Steve insists Bar was fine before I got there.

Our worst colic incident was with Lena, two weeks after we got her. 1,200 pounds hurling herself into the side of the stall, an IV pulled out numerous times, up all night, moaning horse.. awful.

Thankfully, she recovered (obviously), and while she occasionally has minor bouts, she's never been that extreme since.
