Moving forward into year five has had its challenges! Talbot’s Sparky age 23 has had a rough year. Years ago, he came home from a training barn with a virus or infection, we don’t know which. Two protocols later he is holding his own with an occasional cough. Talbot’s Cracker shared the cough but non of the complex respiratory issues Sparky had. Over the years there have been episodes we managed with the help of several caring veterinarians as it popped up at shows and expos when extreme dusty conditions were present. Being an outside kinda guy, the Years moved on and he was fine until the herbicide spraying via crop duster began putting us right in line with prevailing wind direction. This was our worst past few months, starting in the summer of 22. When your horse can’t breath, he can’t eat, can’t walk…..Working with our vet Chuck Dake, we now have a protocol we implement when needed. Whew.. Dedication and diligence are the name of the game. Thanks for getting this far…will get on with the review shortly.

About chocolatehorsefarmgypsyhorses

My husband, David and I own and operate Chocolate Horse Farm in SW MO. We began importing in 2001, one of the longest farms still operating and dedicated to a special breed of horse known as the Gypsy Vanner Horse. We maintain and train an average of 24 horses , with the assistance of some special people. As for the sale of CHF horses, it is a match we take seriously. Therefore, more information will be required of buyers in an effort to put the best horse with the best human. Thank you for visiting!
