As I was catching up, many of you updated posts.
Koolio, I hope you made it home safely. Sounds like a terrible journey home. - update, I am glad you made it back safely, and holy snow fall.
Stan, is it possible that Bugs knows every time you see her that she's going to be working? If so, can you add in some extra time? Update - any chance of using a grazing muzzle for half the day?
Happy Place, buying used is risky. Take a measurement form your old saddle and go with that - and then buy at a price you know you can resell if it doesn't fit. Just about all the tack I own I bought used, as I don't have the income for new. And I resold a bunch. As long as you are not in love and so over spending, you should be able to resell it.
Nicker, glad you figured out it's thrush, easy to treat and easier than finding a new farrier.
The new kid is great. He bought gummy bears when we stopped at the gas station tonight to get milk on the way home. A while later, I asked for orange ones, but they were all gone, so I took a few of his yellow ones instead. After that, he picked out his gummy bears and left me all the yellow ones. He passed me the bag of just yellow ones left, I took a few and returned the bag.
He's no angel, in fact he had a disagreement with a kid this morning, and that kids shoes were outside as he stepped in dog poo. New kid dragged that kids shoes through more poop, said nothing, and left them outside. In fact he is still denying it, but I know it's him.
So he's doing right with me, but taking a crap on the other kids. Pondering that issue, as it's a new one. Obviously he will clean up the shoes but how to deal with it on a bigger issue is what needs some thought.
My thumb isn't healing well. I put these pics on FB last night, don't remember if I posted them here too. I don't think I did. It's been 5 weeks, and I need to admit I was wrong and go see a Dr. The broken thumb is the gross, yellow and larger one.
