Did you know that March is Colorado's snowiest month? Yep, it is. And sure enough, we are having another blizzard. The horses are on lock-down. That's not popular.
Don't let this sweet face fool you...
Paj has just about had it
That is not a happy horse face.
Tomorrow will be much nicer, and the boys will get out. But today, the snow is whipping across the plains as the wind rages at 50mph.
My orchids are brightening up this nasty day. I bought my first orchid off the dying-plants-on-sale table at the grocery store about 10 years ago. It's bloomed for me every year ever since, sometimes twice a year.
and still blooming today.
My newest orchid was a Valentine's Day present
from my Valentine. Aww.
But I have something even better to brighten the snowiest month - good news on Ben. You may remember that Bob's Clydesdale Ben was very ill in August 2011 with hepatitis. He spent some time in the hospital, and we have monitored his blood every 3-4 months ever since. It's been good, and he acts like a healthy horse, but still I worry when it's time to draw blood.
Ben's test vials.
The one with the red top is for the GGT (gamma-glutamyl transferase) test, and the other vial is for the CBC (complete blood count) test.
Drum roll, please...
Normal, all normal!
Good boy, Ben.
Ben and David
We love you, buddy.
