I hate waiting. I am seriously thinking of demanding they come see him today. DH says listen to the vet. Vet says with no fever etc there is no pressing need for antibiotics. As I am checking his vitals 4-6 times a day there is no need for the vet to rush out and do the same. BUT I really don't like the look of this snot.
I've never been so over protective before. Have I? I say no.... DH and vet say YES. Phhhhttt what do they know? I'm gonna give it til lunch time and if he is still .....odd?.... I am calling them to come out today.
I knwo our vet knows what he is doing...but they don't handle him every day. He might not be running a fever, but he's snotty and just not right, right now. I know I worry to much, but he's got no voice to yell "I Don't Feel Well!" So, today I live up to the name Primary Stalker and watch him like a hawk some more.
How can you not worry excessively about a face like this?

It's been a while

Hi Horse Forum. Tobie here. Can I just say we have been ummm busy? Yeah. That works. I am sure Mom aka: Primary Stalker has informed everyone we have a new family member. Miss March the Mini. Say that with a mouth full of hay
I absolutely LOVE Miss March!! It's awesome having her right beside me 24/7. She walks weird, but I like her. I was in a perpetual state of excitement the first 72 hours she was here. I went for my food, but that was it! Mom moved my water, well she added another bucket closer. And OMG People she MADE me go eat some hay! She tied me beside the bale! I cried and called until she yelled at me. ( I knew she was just around the corner hiding.) Then I ate some hay.
I got out of jail and went back to the corner where Miss March is. DO YOU KNOW what they did?? They put her in the YARD! I am not allowed in the yard *snort* SHE gets to live in the yard! Today they built her something Mom calls the Pony Palace. Nice looking digs I tell ya. All I get is a stinky old barn! Where is my Big Boy Bungalow?? I'm telling you they favor her! Jealous you ask..... Certainly not! I only want to see what everyone is doing to her.
OMG Mom used my brushes on her too! I didn't like that one little bit. So, yeah, I cried, pawed, and raised a stink. Those are mine! Mom gave them to me the day I moved in! Oh, get this, SHE gets hay carried to her! I have to walk all the way to the barn to get mine! Well ok, I DO get some when she gets hers. But Mom put mine on the ground! AND I only got a big arm load! She got a whole HUGE bin full! How fair is that?
The farrier came Saturday and gave me a quick trim, I only wanted to bite her once! Mom says I am improving! What is there to improve on? I am freaking fabulous! This rain is killing my hooves, and my coat. I am SHEDDING already! It's awesomely warm one day, then BAM the wind is whipping and cold rain. It's like revolving blankey time! Put it on, take it off, put it on and take it off! And this mud!! At least it has gotten me light work. Silver lining and all that
Anyways, Miss March on the other hand got fawned over for HOURS. No joke. HOURS. I was so pi...errr.. mad. I rattled that fence good for a while. Do you KNOW what they did to me??? They IGNORED me. Mom fussed at me a couple times, but she ignored me mostly! Me! Tobie! The most important gedling in the world!! The gelding who has sunshine coming out the bum every morning! I will not tolerate this kind of treatment! I won't! Cookies, oh, yes I did get cookies. After I stood all quiet and peaceful. She tossed them over the fence! Not in my bowl. In the D I R T! Like I am some kind of animal! Tasted good though
Mom said Miss March probably won't stay forever like the rest of us. I have my doubts! I think Mom already loves her a little bit. And DH, well he built her a Pony Palace. I ask you, who do you think he likes most?? Me the big huge handsomest guy in the world, or that little scuffed up Mini. I think it's the mini. I am ok with Dh loving her best. As long as Mom keeps loving me best, I am good... I think.
Well, time for me to go. Mom is going to start a journal for Miss March tonight. I think Miss March is staying, for real. I love her, so I guess it is ok. She needed some place snug and warm to sleep, so I guess the Pony Palace is ok, too. And I know she walks weird, poor thing, so I am ok with her eating my hay. For now at least. I'll update some more later. If I can get computer time again LOL. And so you can see just how handsome I am, here is a picture of Miss March and I. Isn't she tiny! And poor thing, she isn't gorgeous like me, just cute

Shoot. My pictures are on Moms laptop. I'll put the one of DH finishing the Pony Palace up and have Mom put my gorgeous self up later

That is so cute, Tobie likes having a mini friend (literally) around. Awww.
Pony Palace...too adorable. Yay!
