9/18/2017 - Whew! No Plastic Surgery or Laser Treatment for me

It has been almost a month since I had surgery on my face to remove the skin flap/rhinoceros horn from my charming face. 

After surgery they gave me a Super Hero mask/bandage that was quite flattering and got me lots of attention.  I like attention!


They also gave me some great PURPLE stitches to compliment my handsomeness. 

My good friends Dana & Kelly S. have been taking great care of my wound.  Daily cleaning/rebandaging, etc.  I just love all the attention. 

Because of the great wound care, hugs and treats, my adorable face has healed wonderfully.  Looks like I won't have to have any plastic surgery, laster treatment or have to wear makup.  Thank you Dana & Kelly for taking such good care of me.

Thank you for treating me so special...cuz I am!

8/22/2017 - I'm a Super Hero!

First off, let me say that I am accident prone.  Seems I manage to to get cuts, scrapes, dings and dents just because I am jaunty, lighthearted and a klutz.  I put a dent, scrape on my face a couple months ago that made a flap of skin on my beautiful face.  It was cleaned & medicated regularly and I regularly rubbed it and dinged it over and over.  The picture below was taken at the beginning of July.  The top of the flap did not adhere because I kept aggravating it.

By August, I had created an impressive looking rhinoceros horn!

I am supposed to be at Summer School with Dana & Kelly Stark to get a little more time and miles under my belt.  Dana was taking one of her horses back to the vet (Spirit) for a follow up on a recent surgery.  TIER, in their wisdom, thought it was a good opportunity to have me go along and have my horn reduced.  Afterall, it should only be a snip off the horn, medication and after care kind of thing. Right?

Of course not.  We went to a very well known veterinary establishment renowned for their veterinary and surgical skills and what TIER thought was a simple procedure ended up being one pricey rhino horn removal!

Vet bills for TIER this year have been high and are climbing!  But, after the procedure I got a Super Hero Mask!

I love it so much that I've already tried rubbing it off.  The bonus is that it makes me look so cool and Super Heroish...especially at night!  Don't I look awesome??

7/17/2017 - Off to Summer School!

Hi Ho, Hi Ho! It's off to Summer School we go!

Kelly and Dana S. offered to take Lincoln to their ranch for a month or so before Kelly goes back to school. (She is going to be a Veterinarian!! Yay!).  They will work with him on trail, arena, etc. to help him become the best he can be and hopefully find the perfect home.

Lincoln is excited about this wonderful opportunity and TIER is so very grateful to these awesome women!

Lincoln: "Let me show ya what you get to work with!"

11/20/2014 - Having some fun!

Lincoln is spending some time at Henderson Ranch.  He is getting quite a bit of attention there and is hamming it up for the camera!

From Cindy:  He's showing off his teefers. I was sitting on a boulder taking this pic and he tried to climb up the rock. I think he wanted to sit in my lap and cuddle up.

From his friend Linda:  He is such a sweet guy! Went to tuck in my babies tonight and spent some time watching him eat his dinner. He came right up and let me pet his face and give him kisses. Lovey!

9/10/2014 - Dr. Don Moore visits

Lincoln finally got to meet Dr. Don Moore (Equine Chiropractor). Lincoln's tail was a bit offset and we wanted to make sure that it wasn't anything that indicated a problem.

Lincoln was adjusted from head to tail. He was a very good boy for Dr. Don.

It appeared that Lincoln had some issues at the base of his tail which were rectified by Dr. Don.

His session with Dr. Don ended well! What a cute pony butt!

6/20/2014 - A little maintenance, Feet & Teeth

Lincoln had his hooves trimmed and his teeth floated today.  Considering he appears to be somewhat unenlightened about things, he did pretty well.  He tends to pull back when pressure is applied to the lead rope. Using pressure/release methods worked well when he was getting his feet trimmed.

He did not try to stike or kick when the farrier picked up his feet.  Instead he would pull his leg away after a few minutes.  Our farrier continued to talk to him to give him reassurance and got the job done.  Lincoln's frogs were overgrown to the point that they had rolled back on themselves and caused bruising.  This was pared down and his soles were cleaned up.

Lincoln's teeth were examined and it was determined that he is in his early teens.  Appx. 14-15 yrs. old.  His teeth were in pretty bad shape. One molar had grown long enough that it ground down the lower opposing tooth.  The long molar had to be cut and then ground down.  It is hoped that the lower opposing tooth will grow into the space.  For now, Lincoln has a gap in his toothline at that part of his jaw.  Sharp edges and hooks were filed down.

6/19/2014 - After an hour delay, Lincoln arrives at TIER

Ingrid L. once again hooked up her truck and trailer to help a horse come to TIER.  She did not hesitate when the call was made asking if she could transport.  Little did she know that it would take about an hour for Lincoln to get in the trailer!

It was not because Lincoln was frightened, it was because he just doesn't know anything.  BUT...thank goodness he has a big interest in food because that was eventually how he was enticed into the trailer.  He's not too good at leading........

He kinda tends to wander off.......

Once he and Ingrid zig zagged their way to the roundpen, all was well.  Especially after he found the Hay!

Such a cute guy and just as sweet as can be!  Not a mean bone in his body.  He just doesn't seem to know much .............yet.
