Photos from today

Yes, I am still alive! I am feeling quite a bit better, too. This last week was the first one that I had fewer hours at my other job, and mostly did the medical transcription. Not having to get up before dawn feels like such luxury! I've been working my tail off at the MT job, but I still feel like one of the "idle rich" because of sleeping in. I'm enjoying the feeling while it lasts :-D

I was out in the pasture with the horses today and actually remembered to get some pictures, so here in they are in all their dusty beauty. No pregrooming to get them looking spiffy for the camera. The top one is my favorite. That is what I often see when I look out my window.

I tried to get a picture of Mira's injured eye, but she kept turning her head, and I was too lazy to put the halter on. I'll try to do that tomorrow. Anyway, for the last week or so she has been holding it mostly open, but it looks inflamed still, and sometimes it waters a bit. Only clear discharge, though. Anyway, since it doesn't seem to be getting worse we are still just putting the ointment on and hoping for the best.

Here are some pics of the Racehorse Dude. He has almost completely shed out his already skimpy winter coat now. I can't wait to see what he looks like after a good bath.

I never thought I would have been grateful to go this long without rain, but I have been really glad, as it's given me a much-needed break and chance to get caught up on stuff. Now I'm hoping we'll get some rain soon - next week would be good. Anyway, I'll try not to go so long between posts next time!

I'm going to be really glad to have my horses all shed out but they are just starting in this process.

While you're not having rain, we're making up for it. lol

Glad to hear that Mira is at least holding her own with the eye. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Yay your back! And yay that Mira's eye is not getting any worse! I am sure everything will turn out alright in the end. It always does.

MiKael - yup, my horses shed out a lot faster down here than yours do. By the way, what are your Arabs' winter coats like? Mira's is MUCH heavier than Andolu's...

OTB - I'm not getting my hopes up too much, but it does seem like a good sign that she's been holding it open. I tried & tried to get some pics, but it is almost impossible to get a good one. Argh. Anyway, most of the time it seems just as open as the other one.
