Well the more things change the more they stay the same I guess.  Jerry has seen the doctor & been pronounced  "fit for duty".   He also has found a way to go thru the pens & pick up poo without having to drag the cart, so for now he's staying.  I really hope he stays for awhile, it's amazing how much easier chores are without poo & water.

The jenny & baby are in their new home & it sounds like the people are really enjoying them.  She's a very pretty girl, I've never seen one marked quite like she is.  She looks black but has a lot of white points.  The little jack is of course cute as a fuzzy toy, & full of himself from what I hear. 
Unfortunately his daddy hasn't found a new home yet.  I hope he doesn't end up with some of the ropers, that is what usually happens with jacks out here in cowboy country, if the people just want to get rid of them.  We could take him & have him gelded, but he's unhandled & needs training to be adoptable.  We just don't have the time that he needs. I've called the woman & left a message, hopefully between the 2 of us, we can figure out something.  

This Sunday we will be picking up a mini horse that is about 15 years old & is chronically foundered.  We haven't seen her, but it sounds like she has some pretty nasty feet, & spends a lot of time hobbling around.  Sigh!  Sounds like I'll be soaking hay in cold weather of my favorite past times..........NOT! 

Speaking of cold weather it was 21 degrees this morning right before sunrise.  It's up to 67 now in late morning with lots of sunshine.  One thing about the desert, you can expect temperature swings sometimes as much as 50 degrees in a 24 hour period.
