    Thank you! I'm going to take more today hopefully. I think the stress shut down my immune system and I woke up coughing today so I'm trying to make it out there for just a little.

My mom did some energy work on him today to help with his healing from his traumatic trailer experience but he's expected to make a full recovery! For a thorough story on his hauling accident this link explains it. He's doing great considering what he went through.

We'll see what the vet thinks on Friday!
    What a fantastic and refreshing view, kudos to you for deciding against breeding.

    The only breeding he's going to be allowed to do is to a very few select purebred mares to promote the breed. And his only intimate relationship in that respect will be with a plastic pony and a cup. He's already turning into a good boy! He explored trot poles today. Sniffed at them, attempted to eat them, walked over them. Then we met a green Jolly ball and nosed it a couple times before moving on. We're practicing stopping when mom says stop. Whoa isn't familiar so we're working on that and he has no idea how to back up but of course that'll come with time. He and the goats took a look at each other without incident so that's good and he's already familiar with dogs. He's not allowed to meet mares nose to nose but he's welcome to look at them across the aisle way. He's met the geldings for the most part just walking up and down and introducing him nose to nose. He just wants to play and ends up nuzzling their neck or liping at their face talking quietly. I can't wait until he's allowed to run around so I can get some pictures of him in motion!
    I even have a photo shoot with him on Saturday. Just standing portraits and snuggle hugs but he gets his first bath tomorrow so I can clean him up a bit for it. He's a pretty pretty boy.

    We just did a couple pictures with him today since his foot was bothering him from the swelling where he had it jammed. Later on we found a gash that didn't look very nice so that's wrapped with goopy good stuff on it and dealt with now. We took some outside in his run though that he's been sectioned off of. The photographer said he'll try to have pictures available for me sometime this coming week.
