Simmons and Honcho went to their forever home in July 2012, and I'd been wondering how they were doing. Usually adopters keep in touch for a few e-mails or phone calls and then it would be up to me to keep in touch. I don't want to be a "helicopter" type of former "mom", so I'm always very happy to get an update.
Cindy's last 2 sentences says it all, "I hope things are going well at the rescue, and thanks again for the honor of being these two long ears Mom. We love them to pieces"........!!! What more could you ask for, even though Honcho steals stuff and unless they find it in the water trough, they usually don't find it. Simmons has turned into a cuddle bunny and although they are bonded, he really loves being with people. She said they have so many good laughs with their antics, especially Honcho.
Thanks goodness, Honcho was a pretty hard sell, he actually came thru here 4 times, two of them for cause. 'Cause Honcho couldn't behave himself........... I'm glad he found someone that appreciates his uniqueness and intelligence.
Cisco was limping last night and still limping this morning. I didn't give him any bute last night. I couldn't find anything wrong, so it could have been an abscess. You don't give bute for an abscess until it opens, because it would slow the process. But this morning he had a little puffiness in his fetlock, so he got bute and a cold pack. Hope it gets better soon. His legs are not good from being a roping donkey in a roping school, so he doesn't need this.
