It might work out pretty good working for the DH. Some people get lots of pay raises if they have something going on with their boss.................

Well, he made a great deal on the boys!!!

As for working with hubby - Barry helps me with my cakes - just delivery though. He has rolled out fondant for me once a few years ago when I had hurt myself and didn't have the strength to roll it out. There is a reason pastry chefs used to always be men!!! We get along just fine but don't know about the all day thing.

If he is in and out most of the time on calls with repairs, bids, etc. it might work out just fine. If he is in the office all the time uhh...maybe not! Depends on y'alls temperaments. Barry is an easy going fellow at work - I am sure most people have no idea he can be a bit of a pill at home!!!

Sultan (and George) are both coming 14. Dean has had them about 7 years now. The boys are half-brothers who have been together their entire lives (born 2 weeks apart). Dean actually went to look at/buy Sultan, but the breeder said it was a package deal or none.
So great that your DH kept both the boys together! Does he compete them both?

I've never worked with a family member, but have know plenty of ppl that do it without problems.

What about part-time at both positions to see if it will work out? It might be that calls could be routed through his cell phone at slow times, maybe the afternoons. The vet may agree to part time too, in most places they have difficulty keeping good help.

I rode 3.8 miles today from home. It was probably the last chance to ride before the great floods come in starting tomorrow. So I have ridden 18.5 miles for the year.

Well, the rain and snow and cold has been nasty the past week. I have only been able to do some ground work with Smokey, and I have rode Rose only once, bareback, around the house maybe 2 laps. So, no pictures of the horses.

BUT

Everyone enjoyed the puppy pictures! So, I thought I would share them. The puppies were 1 week old on the 18th. My aunt came out today and brought her grandkids. The two boys picked out which puppy they wanted - and of course they pick the only boy. That's fine with me, because I had my puppy picked out as soon as she was born. So, here are a few pictures. Enjoy!

Here is Momma Hershey taking a break from the puppies. I swear, she's not the 'mothering' type. I had planned on breeding her to a reg. toy poodle, but after this 'oops' breeding with a chihuahua/pom mix and seeing how much she doesn't like being a mom, I am going to get her fixed as soon as the pups are weaned.

Here is the Daddy of the puppies. Just to see what the dad looks like. Again, he is a chihuahua and pom mix. He is only about 3 pounds (if he wasn't so fat, that is) and Hershey is about 5 pounds, so these pups will be small. :)

He is such a silly dog, lol

Ok, puppy time. This is the first puppy that was born, and is the one I have claimed. It's a little girl. Me and my fiance have been trying to come up with a name, but we're still at a loss.

P2181415.jpg

Here is Puppy number 2. Another little girl. This one is going to be a birthday present for my Mom. She has been wanting a puppy for a while, and her husband keeps saying no... but he can't say no if it's a gift right? :)

P2181416.jpg

And lastly, number 3. The only boy. This is the one my aunt and her Grandkids picked out. They named him Monkey, lol.

P2181418.jpg

And here are a few just random pictures.

I promise I wont spam you with so many pictures next time, lol.

So, I have a little update on Drambuie.

I had the farrier out tonight to pull his front shoes & give him a trim. Lee also checked his hooves with a tester, the left hind has a soft spot, most likely a bruise. He did say he saw no signs of navicular, which is excellent.

Then I lifted up Drambuie's sheet to show him the back and Lee saw the lump before I even said anything. He checked his back by running his fingers alongside the spine and Drambuie nearly collapsed in the right hind. There is no doubt his back is sore.

Now, I realize that a farrier is not a vet, but I totally trust Lee and he explained things very clearly, and I could absolutely see his back is the problem.

So I may try for the chiropractor first, or the xrays first. I am sitting here sick to my stomach though, because I have no idea what I am going to do if he is not fixable.
