Rode this stinker in a halter tonight to test a theory that came from his show. After talking it out with @eventingarab, it finally clicked that maybe the vet I’ve been using is wrong and he actually does need his teeth floated.

He was super forward and eager without any of the head-tossing issues we’ve been having (of course I couldn’t really collect him up to see, I just waited for him to relax and stretch down).

He’s got a visit with the dentist on Friday morning and I’m crossing my fingers that’ll help.

Hi there, I love your blog! Do you happen to have any fic recs! Thanks!

Hi back! Thanks:) I keep meaning to make a consolidated fic rec list, but haven’t gotten around to it. Here are a few slapped together from @intermittently-ava and @torii-storiis lists:

You As You Were by a_pious_cruelty[E][6k] 

Clint put down his binoculars. “No sign of Andres,” he said. He glanced over at Bucky. “You ever gonna cut your hair, Barnes?”
“You look like a serial killer,” Clint said.
“I don’t look like a serial killer,” Bucky said.
SHIELD partners Bucky with Clint.

Counterparts and Bleeding Hearts by snakesinthetardis [Not Rated][2k] 

Clint can’t sleep. Bucky can’t sleep. They run into each other in the kitchen at two in the morning.

Unconditional by DreamingAngelWolf [T][6k]

Lucky loves Clint. That goes without saying. Which is good, because Clint suddenly isn’t saying anything anymore, and Lucky doesn’t know why - he just knows that he wants to make Clint talk again, and if he can’t do that, he’ll make him smile instead. It isn’t easy.

Lend An Ear by DustToDust[T][8k] 

Sometimes all it takes is to be a willing ear.

The Chains that You Refuse by OddityBoddity[M][22k] 

That time Bucky and Clint broke into Asgard.

We’re burning up by minzimpression [Not Rated][4k] 

Clint may or may not fall in love with a soldier while riding the subway.

Simple Thing by SoldierOfMyShadowyMind [T][8k] 

“He’s been hurt badly. He needs time to himself.”
“He needs a bloke for a good night” Tony returns with an expert expression on his face. “Trust me, I know what’s the best cure for these situations.”
Clint has sworn off love. Or, well, he thinks he has.

Thank God For Clint Barton by Goira[T][13k] 

‘ok don’t kill me but I kinda broke the heels you gave me. I’m soo sooo sorry. Don’t kill me.’
This wasn’t Steve. For one it was an unknown number, for two, well he didn’t know Steve to wear heels, or to break them for that matter. And just as he was to say so to the stranger, his phone buzzed with another message.
‘but I have a good excuse, I tripped in’em and fell off the building, I’m in the hospital right now’

Or the fic where Clint send a message to the wrong number. And he and Bucky start pining over each other pitifully.

The List by GingerEnvy[Not Rated][11k] 

Clint finds out some bad news and decides to write a list.

Respawn by adamsgirl42 [M][2.5k] 

Clint is stuck, don’t worry he figures it out.

Some With Traps by Hrafnsvaengr [T][3.6k]

 Stuck on a mission together, Barton’s getting on Barnes’ nerves. Barton’s an idiot.

Paternal Error (In Which Clint Keeps Picking Up Strays) by EVVS [T] [34k] 

Bucky has never once thought of being a parent. Not since the Winter Solider happened.
Until he falls in love with Clint Barton. And that idiot just keeps collecting children for his flock.
Now Bucky has to pretend like he’s good at parenting.

Titanium by AroAceArrowAce [M][10k]

 Heartbreaking and strong. Both of them.

Love at First Sight by GingerEnvy | Not Rated | 670 words

Clint is dumb. Bucky is sassy.

Scarecrow by ladyshadowdrake | T | 580 words [Also has a sequel]

Clint wakes up one morning to find that he has one more scarecrow than he went to bed with, and it appears to be actually attracting the crows.

there are criminals everywhere by coricomile | T | 512 words **

The butt of the gun hits him square in the mouth.

Hush, Bucky’s Sleeping by avengersincamphalfbloodstardis | Not Rated | 1088 words

What do you do when a super soldier assassin falls asleep on you?

In a certain slant of light by Spylace | M | 3119 words**

During the time under Loki’s control, Clint might have, sort of, accidentally hired the Winter Soldier.

In Which Someone is Kidnapping Snipers by theLiterator | T | 2376 words**

“I’m actually trying to get a royal flush- how many former Soviet assets can I seduce?“

L & Bucky by neverfinishe | T | 1898 words

There’s a point where Clint realizes that the two most important individuals in his life have names that rhyme and end with -ucky.

Nights When You Have Time to Kill by snakesinthetardis | Not Rated | 3575 words

Just because the brainwashing part of being brainwashed is technically over, it doesn’t mean the experience doesn’t leave a mark on you. Clint spends most of his time pretending he’s fine, but then there’s Bucky and Bucky understands and suddenly Clint doesn’t have to pretend anymore.
Five Things Clint and Bucky Did to Kill Time on Sleepless Nights, and One Thing They Did Just Because

Not Less by sara_holmes | T | 3812 words**

“Why can’t I hear?!” Bucky is screaming. “Where the fuck is my arm?”
Clint feels the weight of the metal despite the fact it’s trussed up, held against his chest by something that’s part sling, part restraint. He can sense the cold of the plate embedded in his shoulder and feels like a thief.

Safe Space by scribblemyname | T | 1504 words

He comes to the designated safehouse for help. Natalia isn’t there but the man who takes care of her is. Clint. His name is Clint.

Snipers Like to be High by Batfink | T | 3387 words

“He’s clearly into you.” Tony nodded to himself.
Clint looked back to Bucky, this time not looking away from him when he asked Tony. “You think so?”
“Totally.” Tony affirmed.
“Yeah, well. Whatever will be will be, right?” Clint shrugged. “We’ll get there if we’re meant too.”

There’s a good kind of pain by EVVS | T | 3957 words [Tattoo Artist AU]**

The last couple times Natasha had been around to check on Bucky, she’d tossed around the idea that maybe he should get a tattoo to cover up the burns. She and Steve both knew he was sensitive about it, usually not even willing to look at it; most days, it was so bad to the point that he showered with a t-shirt on. So covering up his mutilated skin made sense, right?

To Feel, To Know by CalciferCai | M | 4568 words [Soulmark AU]

Clint Barton is born with a soulmark, which is considered an oddity in itself. It’s cold a majority of the time, and sometimes it magically picks up enough static electricity to startle him. These attributes aren’t considered rare, as soulmates are able to sense what the other is feeling, but it is rare for soulmarks to fade in and out of existence the way Clint’s does.
He doesn’t pay it much mind anymore, since he’s read all the studies and memorized a majority of them. Whatever Clint’s soulmate does, it’s dangerous and gets them close to dying for years at a time. It’s the only theory out there that seems to fit his situation. After a soulmate’s death, the soulmark disappears; so either Clint has had numerous soulmates with the same mark and they’ve all died (which is just depressing), or his soulmate toes the edge of existence, which sounds a lot more plausible considering all he’s been through lately.

We’re burning up by minzimpression | Not Rated | 3972 words**

Clint may or may not fall in love with a soldier while riding the subway.

5 plus 1 by agentsoffitzsimmons | T | 7421 words**

5 times Bucky Barnes saved Clint Barton’s ass and one time Clint saved Bucky.
This was for the WinterHawk fic exchange for incurableinsanity! It was a lot of fun to write and I really hope everyone enjoys it.

Birdcatcher by Myssi | M | 5570 words [Soulmate AU]**

Handwriting is a neat thing. It’s as individual as a fingerprint and infinitely more insightful than one, as handwriting can convey the writer’s emotions and feelings. It will even change with the writer, shifting itself slightly. That’s why, across the globe, when someone turns twenty-one, their soulmates signature will appear somewhere on their body.
Bucky Barnes wakes up with six signatures in six places, all with vastly different handwriting, but all bearing the same name.

Coffee Spoons by cakeisnotpie | T | 5618 words

Bucky Barnes might not remember who he is, but he knows what he likes.
Or Clint Barton is a pretty good therapist among other things.
Or Steve and Tony are clueless.

Eyes Like Wild Skies by DreamingAngelWolf | T | 8543 words [SPN AU]

Young hunters Bucky and Clint are torn apart when the very thing they hunt takes Bucky for its own. Desperate to get Bucky back, Clint goes on a different kind of hunt, but - as ever in their line of work - nothing is as easy as it sounds.

Get a Glimpse of This Candy Paint by bamkam | M | 5456 words

Bucky got to fight some people, got to see a gay club (even if it was an evil one), and he totally got the guy in the end. 
In all, he definitely counts his first SHIELD team mission as a success. Even if Fury doesn’t think so.

I Don’t Remember How by AvaKelly | E | 7599 words [First Part of a Series]**

“How the hell did they wash you,” he mutters as he raises from the chair.
“Hosed the blood down,” comes from behind as the Soldier follows him toward the bathroom.
Clint almost screams right then and there.

I know my soul believes by minzimpression | Not Rated | 5581 words 

In a world where different soulmarks appear on your skin and only leave when your soulmate dies, Clint Barton realizes that he must be broken. Because his soulmarks appear every few years…only to vanish again.

Synchronicity by AvaKelly | M | 7350 words

James ends up berating himself internally while the meals get ready. He can’t stomach any food right now, so he leans onto the counter with his coffee while everyone else eats.
That’s when Clint stumbles in, eyes half closed and hair in disarray. He’s wearing one of James’ hoodies, the one Tony’s given him as a joke, that says Cyborg on the front and Murderous Kitten on the back, but is surprisingly soft.
OR: the one where Clint falls asleep everywhere and James takes it upon himself to carry him to bed.

The Soldier and The Sniper by GingerEnvy | Not Rated | 6634 words

Originally written for WinterHawk Week Day 5 - AU.
Clint has an affair with the Winter Soldier, and shortly after it is discovered by the wrong people, he vanishes.

The Tragic Ballad of an Under-Caffeinated Hawkeye by sara_holmes | T | 9685 words**

Steve and Tony are idiots, Pepper and Phil are 110% done with everyone and Clint just wants a cup of damn coffee. And maybe someone to appreciate how awesome he clearly is.
Also known as: you know you’re in trouble when Clint Barton is the one sane person left in the tower and Bucky Barnes is the only one who realizes this.

Titanium by AroAceArrowAce | M | 9597 words

Clint’s never been good at dealing with people, so when Captain America’s dead best friend starts hanging around him, he’s not sure what he’s going to do.
But he knows he’ll need some more coffee.

where the streets have no name by lady_kenobi | T | 5054 words

It occurs to him at some point, that he has unknowingly wanted it for many years — to get lost and never come back

You As You Were by a_pious_cruelty | E | 5979 words

Clint put down his binoculars. “No sign of Andres,” he said. He glanced over at Bucky. “You ever gonna cut your hair, Barnes?”
“You look like a serial killer,” Clint said. 
“I don’t look like a serial killer,” Bucky said.
SHIELD partners Bucky with Clint.

Angel in the Architecture by bluflamingo | E | 10778 words

Off the grid on a mission gone awry, the first thing Clint knows of the downfall of SHIELD is when his rescuer, James, hands over a newspaper article. James knows way more about Clint than he should, but Clint recognizes the way James seems like he’s running from something, and anyway, it’s not like he’s got a better bet for getting out of the country. So that’s what his life has come to: fleeing the country in a train car, sleeping with an ex-brainwashed assassin - and then Natasha and Steve show up.

I’ll Keep You Here Safe With Me by sara_holmes | M | 110568 words

Yes, Clint is avoiding the other Avengers. No, he does not want to go back to New York. But then again, he didn’t exactly want to be kidnapped by the Winter Soldier either. Really, he just wants to go back to bed.

Laconic Lassitude by Cristinuke | M | 20263 words**

Clint Barton and Bucky Barnes just wanted everyone to leave them alone.

Leave the gun on the table by Traincat | M | 38800 words [There’s also a sequel]**

Bucky Barnes wakes up in the future, joins the Avengers, reunites with Steve, makes some new friends and some old enemies, gets called Robocop and tries to figure out the future, himself, and Clint Barton’s middle name – all while being haunted by his past, the things he can’t remember and the creeping suspicion that Black Widow knows something he doesn’t.

On a Provisional Basis by Chex (provetheworst) | T | 32782 words

If SHIELD were in better shape, Clint wouldn’t have ended up with his own team and someone else would have ended up dealing with the new recruit. Then again, he wouldn’t have had a good excuse to get the skycycle back, either, so it all evens out.
Wherein Hydra are tenacious, no one can confirm or deny the existence of psychics, and Clint’s willingness to put his faith in folks who no one quite trusts - along with his thing for incredibly competent assassins - lands him in trouble. Again.

Paternal Error (In Which Clint Keeps Picking Up Strays) by EVVS | T | 33905 words**

Bucky has never once thought of being a parent. Not since the Winter Solider happened.
Until he falls in love with Clint Barton. And that idiot just keeps collecting children for his flock.
Now Bucky has to pretend like he’s good at parenting.

Road to Recovery by AWriting | E | 32028 words

Bucky has trouble sleeping. Clint has trouble sleeping and a habit of collecting deadly assassins. They both like movies, and it turns out, each other.

The Dragonslayer by AvaKelly | T | 10467 words [Fantasy AU]**

Fantasy AU for the WinterHawk Exchange 2015
“Wait,” Bucky called, causing the man to stop, but not turn. “Who are you?”
Another pause followed, but a heavier one this time, the man’s shoulders tensing beneath his long coat, as if the question pained him.
“I am Hawkeye, the Dragonslayer.”

Joulutarina loman kunniaksi:

Olin ekaluokkalainen ja mentiin koko koulu joulukirkkoon. Koska kaikki olivat niin pieniä, meillä ei ollut perinteistä “pappi puhuu ja me kuunnellaan”- saarnaa, vaan meille oli järjestetty esitys, jossa oli Jeesus ynnä muut.

Joulukirkon jälkeen puettiin ulkovaatteet niskaan, ja mentiin parijonoon ovien eteen, jossa odotettiin opettajaa ja muita. Siinä jonossa seisoessa Jeesus tuli juttelemaan meille lapsille. Yhtäkkiä Jeesus ilmestyi mun eteeni, ja veti multa pipon silmille. 

Sillon oli “muotia” sellaset pipot, joista sai kääntelemällä väännettyä pannan. Mullahan oli sellainen, ja kiitos Jeesuksen, se meni ihan solmuun koko myssy. En osannut korjata pipoa sellaiseksi että sen voisi päähän laittaa, joten jouduin sitten kulkemaan ilman.

Ulkona oli jumalattoman kylmä, matka oli pitkä, ja lopulta olin sitten joulun kipeänä.

Olen yhä katkera Jeesukselle.
