    Anita Anne- you are right about not wanting to eat with a stopped up nose. I had not thought of it that way.

    My vet had me give him some bute tonight to see if that helped with any pain and swelling in his throat. It must have because I made him his usual dinner and just used some warm water to turn it into a major slurpy (which I figured will help make sure he is getting water into him) and he ate it up. He also got two flakes of hay in his stall but he is picking at those. Maybe it is too rough on his throat right now. If It looks like he hardly touched it when I go back out in the AM then I will probably soak some of the alfalfa cubes I have in warm water for him. His area of Alabama has reported cases of EEE and West Nile. He is running a fever as of tonight but it was low so I am hoping it is neither one of those. He has been vaccinated for both but it is my understanding it doesnt protect fully- just lessens the chances. However vet seems confident he just caught the crud and that it manifested into pneumonia and that we caught it early enough before it could get too bad. Fingers crossed. My BO is going to check on him tonight around 1130/midnight before she goes to bed since she lives on the property.

    I have had my share of leg injuries, scrapes, etc with Drifter but never an actual disease such as this. Poor little man. Its hard seeing them when they feel so bad.

    Where in 'Bama are you Drifting Shadow? I'm in Oxford between B'ham & Atlanta.

    I always thought the horses with the most problems are the sweetest ones

    I am attending school at Mississippi State! So I am actually in Starkville, Mississippi. Whiskey's former owners were in the Madison area, so fairly close to Birmingham I believe. I know we drove through there going to pick him up. They went to a lot of shows down in Mobile on the weekends, etc and I think Mobile is the area that was facing more problems with West Nile and EEE earlier this summer. So I am fairly close to you Anita!! Awesome to know :)

    And ah, that makes sense. Both of mine always seem to love vet visits. And they are both definitely the sweetest :) haha

    And ah, just realized I think Madison is closer to Huntsville than it is to Birmingham. My understanding of Alabama geography isnt too great yet ha ha. I am still figuring Mississippi out!

    I do know we went up to get him through Tuscaloosa and then Birmingham, but Madison is more north of B'ham. Thinking you guys in oxford were more northeast? Or am I way off?

    Close! Oxford is nearly due east of B'ham, really right between Atlanta & B'ham. We are right on I-20.

    Tuscaloosa is SW of B'ham, then if you keep heading in a NE direction, you come to Madison & Huntsville. I am SE of Huntsville. If you think of it as a triangle, with a point at B'ham, Huntsville & Oxford.

    I don't know a lot about Miss, but have a friend in Oxford, Miss where Ol'Miss is located. Are you near there??

    Oxford is north of us, closer to memphis TN. Starkville, where I am, is about 45 mins southwest of Tuscaloosa and we are about a little less than two hours from Birmingham.

    Wow, I used to live in Columbus, Ms. Which is between both of you. Starkville is 30 minutes away and B'ham was 1 hour and 15 minutes away.I have family in Gardendale, Al. My cousin is attending MSU and she just got married down here on the beach last month.

    My wife is,actually, going to Columbus this Saturday to pick up my 3rd daughter and her son as well as our friend. My daughter and grandson will be here til June of next and our friend will be here about a week til her other friend picks up her to spend time with her.

    I lived in Columbus for about 17 years and is where I had my first horses.

    Roadyy that is awesome! I love Starkville. I am originally from Houston, Texas so it was a big change coming down here but it was a nice change :)

    Did you board in Columbus? You might know the people I board with now. I believe it has been around a while. J3 ranch? The owners are Beverly and Nelson jones. I think the owner before them was mrs Beverly's father in law, TN jones. Great people for the most part. Wonderful facility! I was blessed to have found it
