It's Coal!!!

Coal has been at Hytyme for a long time. In his former life, he was a hunter/jumper pony. In the last few months, Coal seemed on the decline. However, with careful feeding from Katie, Sam, and Kassi;  Bowen therapy from Katherine; and regular grooming by Vickie, Coal is feeling (and looking!) better than ever.

Hello again! 

Here's a neat slideshow of the road to the barns taken from April 4th until May 15th. Hytyme Lane, spring to summer:

Things are just fine at the barn! The horses are in from the big field to let the grass regenerate for a while. Yesterday, Dr. Rosario was out to do a wellness exam for Turk (who is moving to Colorado in a few weeks!) and Hope (who has not been feeling so well). Dr. Rosario also performed some chiropractic adjustments on Katie's horses, Story and Charm. It was a nice day out at the barn yesterday (although the horses who saw the vet may feel differently). 

More to come!

Hello again! More news--hopefully, with the upcoming summer weather and potential upcoming adoptions, we'll be posting much more regularly on this blogs. It's been a fairly uneventful few weeks out at the rescue (which is good!). We're slowly drying out from our winter mud, and all the horses are shedding their heavy coats. Everything has been just fine otherwise! 

Here's a picture of Katie Mae snoozing in the barn. That's Braveheart, checking in on her. The big field is open to many of the horses now. They all seem quite happy about that!
Katie Mae takes a nap:

We had some wonderful visitors yesterday. Chuck was there to trim hooves, and Nathalie, who wrote the essay about Hytyme last year, and her crew from the Oregon Episcopal School were out to volunteer. We owe them a big thanks! They mucked out all the stalls and washed the fence. Then they got to play with the baby drum horses, April and Derby. 

Here are some pictures of their time at the rescue:

Thanks again to the OES group--we hope you enjoyed your day at the barn! Thanks to all of our volunteers and friends, too! More updates soon!
