Sheri joined us awhile back, but she hasn't had a chance to post yet, and I can see why now! Shocked

Sheri had e-mailed me about their little horse last week, and sent a few pictures of him & his little legs and hooves, wanting to know if I thought I might be able to help him with the *Magic Shoes*, but hadn't sent me any measurements for his hooves. She asked if they could drive here for me to apply his shoes. I told her if her farrier and or vet said that the little guy, who is about 6 months old, still had good movement in his pastern & fetlock joints, that yes I would apply the shoes, but that I was sure they could do it themselves and save driving 5 hours one way! Shocked

Sheri had mentioned once before that if they were to drive here, they would be here at 10:00 this morning, and since she hadn't e-mailed me back since telling me that yes, Lotsofbucs did indeed have good movement in his joints, well, I really wasn't sure whether or not they were coming for sure, but at 7:15 this morning I got a call from Sheri saying that they were at our gate! Shocked Laughing

SO I hurridly got dressed and brushed my teeth and pulled my hair up while David walked out to open the gate.

Sheri and her sweet hubby, John Glen, and their three adopted children and one absolutely adorable little dwarf Mini piled out of their vehicle. Laughing What a wonderful little family! Very Happy I am really bad with names, and I can't remember the boy's names, Embarassed but I do remember little Faith's. Very Happy what a precious little girl, and she LOVES her baby....Lotsofbucs. Very Happy I wrote Sheri tonight to ask if I might put their pictures on the forum.

I was quite concerned because the 2 sheets of aluminum that I had ordered 2 weeks ago had NOT arrived Friday evening! Mad ..... What in the heck was I going to make this baby's shoes out of????

Well, I scrounged around and found a shoe that someone had ordered and then changed their mind, (had to redo it to make it fit this little one) and a few pieces of scrap aluminum in my bench drawer. I got Lotsobucs hooves traced, and went to work....good thing he has itty bitty tootsies! Laughing Bless his little heart, he was rolling over to the outside of all 4 hooves, with the left front being the worst, then the right front, then the left back and the right back.

OK, so I get one shoe cut out for his left front and get it applied, John set the little fella down and was AMAZED with the instant results of the *Magic Shoe*. Bravo

I finished up with the last shoe about 1:15 this afternoon. I was hurrying as fast as I could, but it takes a long time to make one shoe and get it ready to be applied, and I wanted to make sure the fit was right. BUT I knew they had a LONG trip back home, too. Confused

Just so tickled that the shoes were helping the special little one so much! Very Happy He was such a GOOD little boy and so very patient with Auntie Nell...and as you may have guessed it, he STOLE Auntie Nell's heart at first sight. Wink

I did NOT want to take any money from these folks, but told them they could pay for the 3 glue kits, and we'd call it good.... John Glen then stuffed some bills in with my shoe supplies, which I promptly snatched out and made them take it back! Shocked Sheri said, "well, can we at least make a donation to Little Bit's Help Fund then?".... and I said, yes you may. Very Happy

SO Sheri and John Glen Davis have made a VERY generous donation to Little Bit's Help Fund, in which I will post and announce on that section, in a bit. THANK YOU ever so much guys, it is VERY MUCH appreciated! Very Happy

If I get their permission to post the pictures I took, I will add them to this thread.

Edited 1/13/2008
I received a note from Sheri this morning, saying:




We made it back last night and what an awesome trip. You have got to be the
biggest angel ever...!!!He is doing great. We gave hime a little pain med
last night and I also went down this a.m. and gave him a small amout. He is
doing great. He is limping on the front foot but no biggie...He was doing
that before. I feel we have made great strides with him and we have you to
thank. We are so greatful to you and your husband...there are no words that
can express our gratitude. You have our permission to print any pic's you
want to I will also foward you the ones I took and I you want to use any of
the feel free. I would like to write an article about our experience if this
is o.k. with you . I will draft it and forwad it to you to look at and
approve. I think miniature hore breeders and owners need to know what they
can do with these guys. anyway enough rambling...I will get our pics to you
tonight after the kids are asleep. As you can imagine it is tough to get
thins done when they are bouncing around...

All Our Love,

Sheri and crew

Here's a picture of Lotsobucs' front legs and hooves, once I got the first shoe on... didn't think to take a pic before I applied the first shoe. Sad the left hoof with the shoe on was rolling over to the outside quite abit more than his right.

And what a difference in Lotsofbucs wee little feet. How tall is he Janell? He looks so small beside little Faith.
Thanks so much for posting these adorable pictures.

Janell is the biggest angel. We have had many minis in fact lotsofbucs is the second dawrf we have had. 6 years apart. Who knew there was soo much to it and so little resourses. I can't tell you how greatful we are to janell. We love all our animals and children. When we left from Shreveport that a.m. we left Yes 2:30 a.m. when the original plan was to leave Yes 5:00am so of course we got to Janells very early. I was afraid she was going to tell us to go home...But she took us in and I will never forget her. What wounderful people they are. Lotsofbucs loves you he told me himself to let you know that.

Hi Sheri~
Bless your heart, thank you for taking some of your PRECIOUS time to post. I hope you will find more time to post in the future, but I know there is VERY little time for yourself with all your animals and 3 darling children!
I commend you and John Glen for adopting these 3 little ones. Very Happy ... some x - inlaws of ours have spent an UNREAL amount of money trying to have a child of their own, she was pregnat with two babies, and they both died after a few weeks. Sad I just keep thinking, all this money could have been spent on an adopted child (children) instead! Sad But they won't even consider adoption. Crying or Very sad What a shame! Crying or Very sad

Are ya sure li' Lotsofbucs is not unhappy with his Auntie Nell, for gluing that funny stuff to his tootsies? Bless his little heart, it is such a BIG change in the way he has been walking for the last 6 month! But it will be good for him in the long run. Very Happy I hope he is feeling better today.

Sendin' LOTS of sugars to that sweet boy, he is just precious, and like I said, he sole my heart at first sight! flirting
