I'm trying to see this time at home as a gift and while I'm not up to any major DIY projects or anything, I've been spending a lot of time at the barn. Which is at my house - don't worry - I'm not travelling to see my horse. I'm torn up that so many people can't see their horses right now and I'm super grateful that I can. I feel guilty and lucky all all at the same time.
I've been doing a lot of stuff with Fred and even Copper has some news to share with you guys (he always tells me to not forget him on the blog! lol).
So, seeing as how this one won't have a lot of substance, I'm just going to do a list with a few pictures and notes here and there.
1. My friend was able to have the vet out for the 45 day ultrasound on our mare. The vet confirmed everything with the foal is looking good! Woot. 300 more days to go?
2. Fred managed to hurt himself and got a big cut/puncture wound on his jaw. I tried cleaning it thoroughly, but it still got infected. *sigh* He was due for his vaccines right at the same time, so at least the vet call was 2 birds with one stone. It is fine now and all scabbed over and almost healed up.

|ewww...it was about the size of my thumb|
The turkey came back the next day, but all it took was a glare from Copper and the turkey gave him a wide berth and kept moving on to greener pastures.
|That's right buster, keep moving. Copper, probably.|
|tasty pandemic snacks!|

The fun adventure has been taking Fred for walks in our neighbourhood. I was a little worried he would be spooky, but since there is almost no traffic, he has been great. We do 3-4 kms a few times a week.
6. Cat pictures. Cause I got nothin' else! lol
