PLEASE CALL the White House comment line (202) 456-1111 on MONDAY, NOV. 8th and leave a message for the President asking him for an executive moratorium on ALL the BLM's Wild Horse roundups. If ALL of us call on this SAME day with the Same message, maybe it will help stop these roundups. This is URGENT. The BLM just added an additional 1,184 horses to be removed by the end of this year!
Hi ya'll. Promised we'd pass that message on through Honey Bandit's friends.
HB had a pretty good day today. At least he thought so anyway. His temperature is staying within the realms of good health. He spent a pretty quiet day, although he perked up a little bit when the leaves were dancing in the wind. He also was rearing up and playing with Patches, until the exact second I brought out the camera. Little brat knows exactly when to stop. It is so frustrating because they are so very entertaining. I attached a few pictures of them playing. It is kind of funny to watch HB back into Patches. He can tip him pretty easily. When ever HB manages to knock Patches down or even just off balance, Patches will just lay down and roll over, like he planned that in the first place.
Pretty much spent all of last night awake, worrying and listening to the weird noises HB was making. You know how it is when you are worried about something, well you hear every little teeny thing. Hoping to just get some sleep tonight. Matt is hoping that my "feeding change" will help his little problem. Matt has the pleasure of sleeping right next to the "divider". Honey Bandit has chosen that very close and personal corner as his own private bathroom. I will be drifting off a little bit, only to hear Matt, "WHY does he do that right there?". I have to admit it is not the most pleasant scent there is for dreamland.
It is amazing how fast you can learn to live in a carport. Jennifer was teasing me yesterday that I don't have matching rugs and curtains. However, I do have flowers. Our roses have been going crazy with this weird weather. So we have fancy flowers and Honey Bandit knows he is a classy guy. It would almost be embarrassing when we go to Crossroads, as we are surrounded by beautiful, fancy, expensive trailers and horses that cost a very pretty penny; However, everyone is so impressed with Mr. Honey Bandit's good manners and fabulous recovery the rest all melts into the background. There were a couple of ladies there with a beautiful trailer and very very expensive and beautiful horses. But it warmed my heart, because even though our trailer looks kind of scary next to theirs, they were totally impressed as I put the lead over Honey Bandit's butt and told him to get in and he jumped right into the trailer.
So I guess if he is not going to cooperate with the pictures, I am very glad that he cooperates other times. On a very positive note, Honey Bandit has not had any dangerous temperature spikes so far. That is very good news. He walked into the wall on the right side again last night. We are just watching him carefully. He loves his visitors and hopes everyone keeps coming. There are supposed to be some big things happening in the near future and he is supposed to be a big part of it. We are keeping our fingers crossed. It makes things easier knowing that what he went through was not for nothing.
Hopefully we will be working on getting the temporary nursery dry and warm enough to keep him healthy and prevent any more/worse lung or health problems.
