Back From Hiatus?

It's been a difficult time around here...somewhat of a forced hiatus...and posting is likely to remain sporadic for a bit yet, but I'm here this morning, and that's all I can do.

Besides all the "normal" madness, I've been dealing with the death of an elderly relative whose financial affairs, etc. I handled; another bout of bronchitis (gone now thankfully); and a sick horse. (Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?)

More on Solana later...for now I'll just say that we're dealing with laminitis...a very serious disease that involves inflammation of the connective tissue inside the hooves. To say that there is conflicting information about it would be a gross understatement. I initially didn't want to even post about's a lot to deal with and I've been overwhelmed with information and opinions. But it's part of what's going on and if I'm gonna' continue this blog at all then I had to fill you in at least a little! Anyway, for today, she's doing's a long road and we've been having lots of ups and downs.

One of the latest things we've done (we being myself and my wonderful veterinarians!) is to get her into these boots on her front feet.
More on them later...they're *wonderful*! And don't you love her "bobby socks"?! She's almost ready for the sock hop :D
Morning fog at the bridge on the way to the barn.
Xander continues to fare pretty good in this household!!!

More soon (?)...I hope...

I'm sorry you have had to deal with so much lately. Poor Solana. I hope the booties help and you're able to sort through everything. I had to laugh at the final picture of Xander. He's doing fine I see. He must bring you a lot of joy and centering.
