Iggy greets the frigid day in true Iggy style, through interpretive body language.

Horses do a great deal of their communicating via body language. Humans also use body language to communicate various feelings.

What sentiment do you think Iggy is communicating with her body language in these pictures?

MORE UPDATES: On Thursday, November 29, Uncanny joined Reeses on the visit to the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center (EMC). At 29 years young, Uncanny needs advanced dental care as her teeth come to the end of their useful life. Uncanny’s regular dentist and the specialists at the EMC collaborate to ensure Uncanny is receiving the dental care she needs.

On this visit, Uncanny needed to have a tooth pulled. It was already loose and was likely causing her some discomfort. Happy to report that Uncanny has been great for her aftercare (which we do at the farm), is comfortable and continues to enjoy her daily meals which are soaked so they are nice and soft - and require practically no chewing!

To learn more about horses and their teeth, check out this article: https://www.horsetalk.co.nz/2014/10/01/inside-horses-mouth/

NEW NEWS. On Thursday, November 29, Reeses paid a visit to the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center (EMC) for a recheck of the growth behind her left eye socket. You may recall in Dec 2017 a growth was discovered that necessitated the removal of her left eye to relieve pain and pressure (she had already lost sight in the eye several months prior).

The follow up appointment, which consisted of a wellness check, CT scan and endoscopy, showed the growth was moving towards the sinus cavity - which is good news! It is hoped that when Reeses has a 6 month follow up, a tissue sample can be obtained to determine what the growth is.

The staff at the EMC remarked how wonderful Reeses looked and that she was bright, alert and was showing no ill effects of the growth.

Project Horse staff continue to monitor Reeses for any changes that require intervention. Reeses is enjoying life - as it should be!

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the generosity of After The Finish Line for providing a grant to ensure Reeses ongoing health and comfort.
