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.
