In spite of the rain & dreary weather, as soon as the donkeys get thru eating & we can get Thelma loaded we'll head out.  

She followed John out of her pen into the pen we load from real good this morning.  We'll see if she is as cooperative when it comes time to jump into the trailer.  Actually she is a real good girl, she tries to "go along to git along", on most things.........unfortunately haltering isn't one of them.  

Tucker got a new red ball yesterday & a plastic bucket this morning.  So he's having a lot of fun with his new toys.  He's just like a kid, after the toys are in his pen for a couple of days, they are BORING......!!!!   I might start picking them up & putting them back later.

He's growing like a weed, still eating his mush.  We are talking about taking him up to the Equine Center in Gilbert after the holidays for an evaluation.  Right now we have no idea if he needs to still be on mush or not.  No one seems to know for sure.  The clinic up there deals with a lot of animals & they have about 6-8 vets there, so they might be familiar with Tucker's problem.  If he doesn't need to be on a restricted diet, he could be out running around on the property, driving the old fogies crazy.  Not sure they would enjoy it, but I know he'd love to be able to run in a straight line as fast as he can.
