He will open his eyes but he will not move his legs, nod, or squeeze their hands. He was able to do all of that on Thursday so I don't know what has changed.
    I am very tired, mentally and physically. I am also very homesick amd miss my husband, dog, and horse tremendously. My mom is very confused and not in good health so all my energy is going to worrying about Dad and taking care of Mom.
    I am envious of everyone that has been enjoying the spring weather and their horses...except for Hunter. I am NOT envious of that bite. Ouch!
    Thank you for the update. Sending more good healing thoughts and prayers to your dad, and you and your mom too.

    I enjoyed catching up on everyone's news, and loved the photos.

    Corgi, gentle hugs to you, sweet lady. I understand.

    Just popping in for a moment as it's late in the evening here to encourage you, Corgi. Darn it, I wish the news was better for your dad. Sending more healing thoughts your way, hoping that you get some rest and can emotionally and mentally get your arms around what you're dealing with right now. And hoping that your dad takes a turn for the better soon!!!

    I'm sorry to hear about the slowed progress of your dad, Corgi. I will continue to keep you and your family on my prayer list.

    NM71, I am looking forward to reading your update...

    Awe Corgi big hugs to you and prayers for your dad.

    Koolio LOVE your dogs

    Roaddy, my plan is to do just that this weekend. I am going to wait until swelling goes down. Ended up at emergency last night as all walk in clinics were closed (Eater Monday). Had my tetanus shot and got antibiotics. It sure is sore this morning.

    Here is a couple pictures of my doggie Pepper

    Corgi-prayers coming your way foryou & yours.
    Stan-so, if my math is right is that about 4,000 gallons? If so, that is quiite pricey.

    Fahntasia-I love Shepherds and think your dog is quite beautiful. I have a small
    Shepherd-she is only around 50 pounds, but the Shepherd Cross we have is close to 90 pounds.

    Hunter-that is a nasty bite-maybe an ice pack will help w/swelling?

    I start my new job w/orientation tomorrow. We hauled in 1,000 gallons of water on Monday-that ran around $16.00. Our neighbors that have wells go down 800-900 feet.

    I know I have all of 3 seconds to respond and last time he got such as swift kick in the gut he didn't know what hit him. This has been an ongoing issue since he was trained. I wasn't hardly even tightening the cinch as I never do that until he his bridled. This time I was so shocked I didn't know what to do and by the time I did it was too late. I am still kicking myself but not much I can do now. I will take a new pic later I am bruised from just below shoulder to half way between elbow and wrist and boy is it sore and swollen.
    This only happens when girthing. He is fine for vet and farrier and stood for 3 and a half hours last week for his body clip.
    was his head Down or up while you were tightening?
    if it was down "eating hay as you said?" It may have hurt when you tightened.If Cody did that And I didn't have time to react I would have loosened the girth and have a "Do over" until he stood quietly. Even still that is no good. Cody has never biten but has swung his head like he was going to. My elbo is usally right there so after the second time getting a elbo to the nose he pretty much stopped. He will turn and look but he remembers Mom does not need help and looks forward again.

    Hope it does not hurt to much. It looks like it does
