    BNG - please do keep us updated on FB if Funny needs anything else...I just saw many of these posts today, and would LOVE to be part of the Funny Syndicate picnic if it should come to pass!

    I just visited her facebook page before you posted, hoping for some new, sharp, clear pictures of her blossoming into her summer beauty.

    Anyone in her neighborhood with a camera want to indulge the absentee syndicate AF owners by taking pics (lots) and uploading them?

    I put up the last picture I got from Kim. It's a cell phone picture, so fuzzy, but you can see she has shed out her old scraggly coat and as very happy! She is also starting to lose the sharp hip angles and gain some weight.

    I will try to get out there in the next couple weeks if I can and take some good pics with Kim's permission.

    Best 2 hours on the internet thus far
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Wow! She looks just GREAT!

    Everyone who chipped in and stepped up to the plate on this one has my sincere admiration; stuff like this occasionally restores my faith in the human race!

    I can't wait to see more progress photos! I want to see how much her feet have improved after a few farrier visits.

    So, is she still being called Funny now? Soooo much better than *Mama-horse*!

    Mara, I have kept the old owner informed as far as her progress and sent her a few pictures. They were very happy to know she landed in a good place and is happy!

    Mods, this should be a nominee for the best threads. But don't move it yet! I love the story, except that I'm going through a lot of handkerchiefs.

    Default How did spring in a herd change the old lady

    Did she fill out?
    Did she muscle up?
    Did she climb the rungs of success to boss mare of the herd?

    Update and of course pics videos are even better.

    Hi all,

    Sorry for the lack of updates on FB. I am most likely the only person on earth that does not update or post on facebook. Anyhow, Funny is doing great. Eating all she can, playing in the pond, and alerting us at 5:30 on Sunday morning that breakfast is late. Her feet are at a normal angle and the weird diagonal crack across the front is slowly growing out. It looks like she was really sick maybe 6 months ago. There are very deep fever rings growing down. She is not a big fan of bugs, or the heat. She spends her day in the barn under her fan, the moves out with the herd after the sun goes down. Not a bad way to spend the day. She is very attached to the large gelding. He is the boss out there and she is sort of his side kick. I think with her diminished sight, she can hear him moving better than the others. Kind of her seeing eye horse. I will try to get some better pictures up this weekend. Thanks again for the support and kind words!

    Booo-


    I looked up our girl on http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/always+funny
    There is no pic, no information and she is a syndicated mare with a lot of partial owners. That should be mentioned and let the rest of the world wonder what it was about a 29 y/o TB mare that made 67 people chip in to buy her.

    Can you edit a horses background on allbreedped like a wiki?

    Wonderful to hear the update about Funny and great that the big gelding has taken her under his wing.

    I think Bluengrey and her guy are great to take "our" mare.

    Do we have 67 in the syndicate? That's a pretty high number. It would be hard to get the whole syndicate together.

    I'm glad she's spending her last years in a gorgeous place with a good looking gelding as her boyfriend. Smart TB mares often do that. A younger, big strong gelding to be her boyfriend.

    Thanks, Bluengrey. Let us know if she needs any vet bills paid after her endowment runs out.

    Does anyone know how to get in touch with the person who has the mare, or how she's doing now? The Facebook page appears to be gone.

    The facebook page is still there. But right in the beginning she stated she is not a big FB user so I wouldn't necessarily expect weekly updates.
