Update on Ben

Ben continues to receive the best of care in the hospital.  He is eating and his spirit is strong.  We are hoping his blood work will improve soon.  Bob, David and I are taking turns visiting him.  He is very affectionate and a great favorite with the staff.  Bob hung his favorite toy, a milk jug, in his stall.  I hope that soon he's driving the staff crazy with the noise from his toy.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, herd dynamics have become a bit more tense.  Boomer misses his buddy, and he and Reggie are doing a little trash talking at feeding time.

It does upset the other animals, if one of the cast & crew is missing. I hope for the best and fastest for Ben!

I am so glad you posted an update. Ben has been heavy on my mind.
I'm so glad that he is eating... and I'm laughing about the milk jug!
Pippin enjoys an Arizona Tea bottle with a treat in it... keeps him going for - oh - about 5 minutes!

I hope Ben is much better soon and I just love Mickey! He looks so much like my first dog as a child.

I have been hoping Ben was getting better!

Your comment about the trash talking made me laugh. Our goats do that when someone leaves the herd. Then its all about everyone getting in line again lol. One head butt contest after another!

Thank you for updating us. Ben is a very special horse, and I know that I think of him many times each day. Here's hoping that he recovers very quickly and is soon home, to restore the herd dynamics.
