LOOK AT THESE FACES!






(I am feeling much better.  Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts yesterday… made my day!)

Mama Tess.  She was such a proud and strong mare.

I FEEL LIKE IT IS MY FAULT that “The Mama Tess Old and Forgotten” January Bucket Fund is not very full…

I feel that I’ve been distracted by being ill and have not done all that I could to show you the value of supporting the old, forgotten  horses of The Golden Carrot (want to help sponsor one?)..  So, today I am showing you more candid photos of their lovely selves so you can get a feel of their personalities and why they deserve support, too!

I think Mama Tess could have easily been an old and forgotten horse with her feet… yet she was an amazing, loving, strong, incredible mare.  She passed at 26 years.  I wish I could have kept her going so much longer.  Her mind and body were all there.  But, her feet…  So very sad.

But here we have several very healthy older horses who can live on very happily!  They just need support for all of their daily necessities.

Have you ever been so sick that all you managed to do in that day – was feed? Yup. I’m there now.






HAY AND WATER ONLY, THE LITTLE HUMAN IS SICK.

I have no idea what is the matter with me… I even went to the Dr today, and still no idea.

(Nothing overly scary.)

It all started on Friday.  I had severe chest pain on the right side.  I figured I had some sort of chest cold.  But then… it moved around to my back… and then on Saturday it was on my left side, then on Sunday on my left chest…

All the while, I’ve felt weak and cramped up in pain.

Hubby was concerned that I had pneumonia again so he insisted I go to the DR today.  I went because he wanted me to go.  But, I figured my symptoms didn’t really fit anything.. so I must have some sort of weird ‘trunk’ virus or something – in which case they couldn’t do anything anyway.

What makes pain move around so much?

Anyway, I went to the DR.

The DR said it wasn’t pneumonia and she didn’t think it was my heart, but offered a battery of (expensive) tests.  I declined.

She did suggest that it was air trapped in my body…

Hmmmm.

It did remind me of when I had a minor surgery that let air into my body.  I remember the surgeon telling me about the ‘gas’ I may feel inside my body.  I had no idea what he meant – until I felt it.  OMGOSH!  It was so painful as it worked its way around my body, looking for a way out.

That’s exactly what this feels like.  So Hubby purchased some $5 Gas-X for me.  We’ll see.

ALL I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO…

Throughout this uncomfortable time, all I’ve been able to do is feed.

Knowing they need to be fed gets me up and out… even if I’m not pretty while performing the task.   To be honest, I have been doing the bare minimum.  Hay and water only.  But, I’ve been giving them extra hay as a consolation.  I always feel badly for them when I’m not 100%.

But, I know they’ll be OK for a few days until I recover.

I’m guessing a few of you have had these days?

Hay and Water only.  The Human is sick.
