Craigslist pony update - dribblers please read and respond!!!
Pi, aka Honey, is doing well. She's gaining weight and feeling frisky, which means it's time for some serious manner's work.
We haven't had a lot of luck arranging transport to Equis, but another option has popped up. I was delivering donations to Horse Haven of TN last week, and was given the option of Pi going there. Her future will be secure in the hands of the best horse people I know. The remaining funds donated will be passed along to HHT as a contribution to her care.
If anyone objects, I'm sure we can return your donations. $100 went straight to her purchase. I've received $20 and some feed coupons, which I'll pass along to HHT. I think Equis has about $80 left, and she'll forward that to HHT with your approval.
Pi will stay with me until she is up to a reasonable weight. I think she's about a BCS 2 now.
The vet is coming any minute for coggins and vaccinations, since HHT wanted that done asap if she's going to be on their "roster".
Send it to HHT. The vet is billing them for that, and all I've spent is dewormer and some hay/feed.
She'll be here as long as she needs to add weight. The vet felt that it's likely she has been very overweight in the past, based on the feel of her neck. That means that my place won't be so great for her once she's up to weight.
My gripe for the day - some jerk stole the gate off the front of the 30 acres I lease, right on a major road. Luckily, the property owner was by to look at something and noticed it was missing. I can't see it unless I'm looking for it, and my horses were out there all night. GGGRRRR. It was chained and locked on both ends, so I'm not sure what else to do to secure it.
