I could not sleep this morning. Was up doing things around the house very early.
Out to do chores around 7:30....Gary helped. I set up hay bags for the next two days so the process gets easier for him.
Abbe was pretty gimpy.
Right after chores I went down to get another poultice and called Andrea for some last minute advice. What a time to have a lame horse. Anyway, we came up with a plan that is manageable.
Jen arrived a little after noon and we had big salads for our Mother's Day lunch. Grilled chicken, apples, pears, craisins and feta cheese on greens.
She and Steph presented me with his beautiful hanging planter and a basket full of books, magazines and videos.
We went out to cover Abbe's leg with the new poultice so Jen would know what to do.
At 3:30 Jolene and her husband came over to buy some hay....sold almost 50 bales in the last two days and I still have enough for quite awhile. The girls only eat about 4 flakes a day.
The back forty is looking very lush.
Quite a day for visitors and phone calls. Tina, Sara and Amy stopped by....Alice dropped off cookies and Kris (massage therapist) popped in on her motor bike. Then I got a call from
thecrazysheep lady who was making 17 bean soup down in Kentucky. Also had a nice
chat with Carol (out at the lake) and Arlene (my Sequence partner). You can't beat good friends.
Set everything up for evening chores and the girls came in from the pasture.
Abbe looked improved....not normal, but walking better. Done in a flash.
Sandwiches for dinner. No eating after midnight.
Gary cut the cane Al made for me to the proper height and it is so beautiful. A piece of art.
Thanks to all my blogging buddies who have left me me kind messages and will be thinking of me during my surgery tomorrow. I have been catching your vibes.
