Red Holo Snowman,my horse and where I've been.

Hey guys! I'm sorry I haven't posted a blog for awhile. The last week has been crazy emotional . My horse, Shortcake coliced on Mon. night, was okay, and then Tues. night it happened again. We had to take her in to the horse hospital. :-( Her colon flipped over her spleen. :-( Very bad for horses. I was an emotional wreck, but over night it corrected itself! I'm SO relieved, but still a little worried. She's had a good last couple of days, and she gets to come home today! Would really appreciate any and all prayers,good thoughts etc....sent her way that she will stay healthy. She's my BIG baby who weighs almost 2000 pounds! :-) We rescued her from one of the PMU farms in Canada, and I just love her like crazy.

Here is a pic. of her I took when I went to visit her at the Equine hospital.

Her IV's etc...My poor baby. :-(

One of her running in the snow. She LOVES the snow! This was taken about a year ago.

Needless to say, I didn't have a lot of time to mess with my nails last week. She was about 40 min. away from me, and I went to see her everyday. I had on the same polish for most of the week! I don't remember the last time that happened! lol..It was a good one though, so that was okay. ;-) It was the red holo snowman from Blue Cross. I really love this color. Application was good and I think I put at least three coats on.

Here are a couple more pics. of Shortcake.

This one was also taken at the vet....she was enjoying some hay here. lol

Another snow pic.

She is doing much better, and I think and hope she's on the mend for good now. :-) As long as everyone here is healthy, I will be back to my regular posts. Thanks for sticking with me. I really appreciate it.


  1. I hope your horse gets better fast!! My sister has a horse that she loves more than anything. I can't remember if she has coliced before or not but I do know some other horses my sister helps take care of have before and it really scared her.
    That polish looks great by the way. Very jolly!

  2. She's a Pali, right? She's gorgeous! I hope she's 100% soon.

    Pretty polish.

  3. Your horse is beautiful..and I love her name! My favorite character growing up was Strawberry Shortcake..hahaha..But I'm sending prayers and lots of well wishes to your horse..I feel that she will be just fine! I have never known anyone that owned a horse, what a blessing. Horses are such beautiful creatures<3<3<3

  4. Hey Ali, I hope your pony feels better soon! I am sending all my positive vibes her way. What a sweetheart :)

  5. Aw, sweet horsey. I hope she's all better and back with you soon!

    You didn't have to layer the snowman over anything? I haven't tried mine yet but based on the silver holo and the red glitter ones I was prepared to layer the red holo.

  6. I'm so glad she's getting better it is always so hard when a pet is sick. She's an absolutely stunning horse! Love the polish colour too!

  7. So glad that Shortcake is doing better!

  8. Oh she looks fantastic in the snow, so gorgeous! I hope she bounces back quickly from this, and doesn't colic on you anymore!

    And that color looks amazing on you.
