10 September 2007

I took this shot of the girls down the road today. I have converted it to B&W because it just looks better that way. I am still really worried about the sunburn look on the three mares. I searched the field today and found nothing out of the ordinary other than two other plants which I am going to research and see if they are a problem if I can identify them. I went over this morning and sprayed her down with a baby oil, betadine and water solution which kept the flies and mosquitos at bay but you could just see that she is dreadfully sore. I am going to have to fetch her home I think, I will make that decision tomorrow morning

I got some more of the fence built today, am about a third of the way done. It has been hot and humid but I dont think the hot flushes are helping and I am really exhausted and down tonight so this will be short.

Hope everyone is well ((((Hugs))))) I will try to answer the questions asked soon I promise. Thanks for all your visits and messages I appreciate them.

boy, speaking of fences, that's a beautiful fence in that picture. Wish my fences looked like that.

Hope you get it figured out what the problem is with the girls. I know what a stressor that is for you. You have enough on your plate without this added issue.

Things are ok here. Life just keeps rolling along. New adventures every day. The weather is warm, in the low 80s too hot for me but I guess you would appreciate the coolness from what you have to endure.

Have people coming at the end of the week to look at horses. It's only tentative, so cross your fingers. Sounds like it could be a good home.

Rachel is back in school so have to change my schedule to work with her. It's the drive home ir rush hour pulling the trailer I don't like. We'll see how it goes.

Hope you have a good day.

You are obviously so concerned about the sunborn problem. I hope you find a solution soon. Glad the fence is progressing. HUGS J x

I learn so much here. I had no idea sunburn is a problem with horses and that certain plants cause it. Maybe that is why I don't particularly care for brocholi.

Hope the mares get better soon. I can imagine you are just exhausted. Hang in there Lori. It will get better.

Late summer is probably my least favorite time of the year. I get uninspired easily with the heat and the drying conditions. The last couple of days however have not been hot nor dry.

Getting ready for my trip. I leave Saturday.

Take care
