We just arrived home from our family vacation!
Actually, only I arrived home from our family vacation… Hubby brought me home so I could care for MamaTess and he is going to return tomorrow morning (Sunday) to hang out for two more days with his family.
Why? Well, my regular horse feeder was not going to be available to care for MT this weekend due to the Tevis. (Do you know of the Tevis? It is a huge endurance race run every year right in my area. Most of the horse feeder types are crewing or working at some level for the Tevis. My vets are both at the Tevis. Everyone is at the Tevis…)
Anyway, I didn’t have anyone qualified to care for MT this weekend so Hubby was kind enough to drive me home. He knew not to ask me to ‘wing it’ on a new feeder. Smart man.
Upon arrival tonight, the pups were beyond happy to see us. This was the first time we left Little Scoutypants and Mayla longer than one night. Hubby felt like a King among Puppies! While I ran to the barn to wake up Tess and make sure she was fine (she was), he received the full Full Court Puppy Press of Enthusiasm filled with wiggly butts and rapid fire kisses.
BETSY ROSE UPDATE!
Today, I am going to bring you a few recent photos of Betsy Rose, our July Bucket Fund Welsh Pony Mare!
You can read her story here. In a nutshell, this lovely Welsh mare was left to starve on her own property with her owners. They just left her to starve – looking at her every day. When BHFER arrived, she was too weak to hold up her head and no one thought she would make it.
But now, a month later, there is hope. A long road… but hope.
Theresa sent these photos of Betsy. As with any recovering horse, she has her good days and her not so good days. But, I hear there are more good than bad.
Betsy is a fighter! She still spends most of her time in her sling… but she is walking for longer distances every day.
Here is the most recent update from Theresa at BHFER:
THIS IS MY FAV PHOTO OF THE WEEK!
Theresa and Betsy Rose…
