Hi my name is Zippy and the humans have FINALLY recognized my incredible talent and have allowed me to have my own blog!!!
Let me introduce myself...I am a 12 year old miniature horse, I came to live at Cowboy Heaven 4 years ago. My background is vague but I was used in showing and then as a broodmare but my feet and legs hurt so bad I just couldn't do it SO I was useless to my owner so I was sold to Cowboy Heaven so I would not get bred anymore.
I came to Cowboy Heaven and met Winnie & Minnie, more about them in future blogs. I was a very sick little horse, I had according to my vet (he is okay, but the girls at Montana Equine are awesome) severe laminitis in both front feet. Everyone was very concerned that I might not be able to be saved BUT after many tests and staying in the hospital for a couple of weeks, they came up with a plan. It has taken a team of vets, my farrier Wyatt, and Brenda & Bill, the owners of Cowboy Heaven a couple of years BUT I am so much better now...I am so glad they did not give up on me. I now will lope on nice days and can walk with out pain. IT FEELS SO GOOD!!! I still need to be on a diet and a pedicure (haha) every 3 weeks but it is worth it.
Bill calls me "his little princess" and I can do no wrong, he is correct. I do like to annoy Brenda as she simply will not bow to me as the princess of the barn, so we are at a stand off until I win. My BFF here at Cowboy Heaven is Tilt and he is a crooked headed sheep but he is a good sheep. I will talk about him in a later blog. I will be introducing the "gang' to you all and then keeping you up to date on events happening.
