Frivolous19 in the bluegrass and sunshine

Frivolous
July 29th, 2019

Frivolous19 is keping up with his regular schedule, going into the barn each day from 7:00a- 10:00a to have breakfast, have his feet picked, temperature taken, and a quick siesta. After 10:00 the horses are turned back out to spend the rest of the day and night enjoying the bluegrass and sunshine. He is quite the daper dude here!

Silver Colors19 loves to play

Silver Colors
July 22nd, 2019

Silver Colors19 is playful as can be. He is still on day time turnout, and has to stay by himself to help with healing. He is out of his bandage, and loves to play with whatever in his paddock...trees, cats, people, his mom... anything is fair game. 

He is losing his baby fur and is starting to get his sleek summer coat. The farm should hear from the doctor in the next few days to see if his tendon is ok to be turned out with his regular paddock mates.

July 15th, 2019

Three Chimneys Farm staff is very attentive to the horses to ensure they are safe, in good health and have good, consistent care. These factors contributed to early detection of colic in Love and Pride last Tuesday. She was acting uncomfortable that morning and the staff brought her to the equine hospital for examination. It was determined that she had colon torsion and a small intestine twist which required surgery. Fortunately, surgery happened quickly which avoided further complications and blood loss. She was placed in good care and was released on Saturday. She is doing well. Love and Pride19 was weaned during this abrupt surgery but did well with the transition. The filly is still with the herd she has been with and the mare, Love and Pride has been moved to a different location. Here is a photo of Love and Pride after returning from the clinic.

With Honors and Honor It

With Honors
July 11th, 2019

Claiborne Farm sent this update on Honor It:

Honor It continues to grow and develop – she has a great amount of presence for a foal, with a strong body and a beautiful walk. We have begun the weaning process and both mares and foals are adapting well. Honor It will remain at the same barn with the same group of foals for several more months and has bonded with the herd in her field. We look forward to continuing to watch Honor It and her herd mates mature throughout the year!
