One of the girl's participating in the co-op has bailed on us and is putting her horse back on regular pasture board the first of the month. There was also a bit of drama going on between her and M, but that happened after she decided to go back to regular pasture board. Something about someone not cleaning someone's stall... petty things that get in the way of horses being cared for. So now it's just me and M.
I can't feed in the evenings and she can't feed in the mornings, so that means I have to get up early every day from here until eternity to feed the horses. I have no idea what we're going to do about Christmas because I have plans to be in Michigan for 9 days.
I won't last long on six hours of sleep a night, I can guarantee that. I know there are people who get less than that, but I need a whole eight hours or I get a little bit cranky.
Here is a picture of my mare's leg this morning. Comparing this one to the one I took last week doesn't show much progress in the swelling department. Still no heat and no lameness, but her leg is still very swollen.
Just for fun, here's AJ enjoying what's left of his breakfast... all that flavor on the tongue must not go to waste!!

A few of the relatives of the BO were out this weekend and fell in love with him. They just love hugging on him and he is eating up the attention! That's one neat thing about him being on stall board. He gets to interact with people a lot more. When he's on pasture board, he just gets fed by strangers and that's it, aside from the attention he gets from me. People aren't able to meet him and find out what a sweet boy he is. He seems to really be enjoying this whole stall board thing.
