The "worry list" has shrunk considerably.
By Friday morning, Red's stomach upset had passed and he was

Donnie's sore fetlock was recovered and he returned to the herd...

He's a very peaceful, gentle horse.
His sister... not so much.
I was so relieved that everyone had returned to normal,
because this weekend was our annual sojourn to the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay...

So, Friday we packed our three canine kids into the back seat of the truck and
drove 3 hours to the Bay for a perfectly wonderful get-away weekend.
All three of them travelled beautifully.
We learned that Chester likes...
