|Two Hours Old.|
I haven't wrote much about Whiskey because I've been worrying about her. You see, due to the neglect she experienced she was very lame on her front. I've had reports that her feet were six inches too long. This has caused some tendon/ligament damage. I'm hopeful that with the baby weight now carrying itself around that she'll start to feel better. She's getting regular trims and I also have a lady coming out to do some massage/muscular work with her. I'll keep you posted once I hear what she thinks.
Now I wait.
I'm leaning towards selling the baby, I'm not in love with it's temperament and its a ghost of my mistake in letting these breeders have Whiskey. Another negative is I wasn't in love with it's half sister (Roxy). I may be best served in taking the time and money to fix Whiskey up, breed her next year (I'm thinking either a rebreed to Guinness' dad or to a Painted River Ranch stud.) and get my "riding" horse that way. I'll wait out the summer and see if more time helps.
