Ode to Wiyaka’ska

 Yes, the winds of change are gently blowing - they tell me it is time to lay to rest that which is past and walk through some open doors yet to be seen.  It is time to say goodbye to Wiyaka’ska. Sade and I took a short walk and finally I could set Wiyaka’ska free. I had to listen deep inside, for blaming anything in…

Saving My Arabians’ Eye

September 10th marks two weeks to the date, I watched my beautiful Arabian left eye go blind. The flies were relentless this year; even strong fly repellant could not deter these pests. Two weeks ago in the early afternoon, at first glance, I knew KlassicAmir was in poor condition as he placed his elegant rounded neck to rest on my shoulder.


KlassicAmir is a very proud graceful Arabian, and for him to succumb to lowering and resting his head, meant he was severely…

Keeping an eye on your Dog: leash law

Know the person's dog who you have put in charge of - behavior. Watch all dogs at all times, even in the dog park. It is one of the best places to have fun, let your dog be a dog and meet great people. Unfortunately, at a cost.

This is a follow-up story of the puppies that were baking in the sun, about 2 or so weeks ago. The good news is: the puppies of 6-7 weeks old are safe at the SF humane society. The not so good news; SF animal control, from whom I could assess from phone calls and the fact the puppies were not immediately confiscated – the “welfare check” went unnoticed and unattended.

The mother is not with the puppies, she still lives in the dismal dank undeliverable repugnant environment where the… Continue

Molly, the amputee Horse Hurricane Katriana survivor story

I've written articles over the years about horses who survived amputation surgery. There was Boitron, the California Thoroughbred stallion who could service mares after amputation surgery. There were Dr. Ric Redden dramatic cases of founder survivors who galloped around his paddock on artificial feet with "transplanted frogs". Dr. Chris Colles had the never-say-die Appaloosa in England with the spring-loaded foot. And who can forget that paint… Continue
