Just a quick update as we have to get up about 3:30 a.m. To go to Carson City for the protest.
We have a new addition, a little baby mini is now in Patches' stall while we take care of a very serious eye injury.
So, now Patches is hanging out with Honey Bandit pretty much 24/7. If that isn't just a picnic. About 1:30 a.m., they both decide to start playing and crashing into the walls. When Honey Bandit is laying down, Patches will go over and just bite on him and paw at him until he gets up. Then Honey Bandit gets up and takes his front leg and starts pawing on Patches back. Kind of looks like it hurts, but Patches doesn't really seem to care.
Then they rear up and play, making as much noise as possible, making sure that there will be no sleep.
Honey Bandit seems to get stuck more often then any other horse I have ever known. He gets cast in the fence on a semi regular basis, and doesn't seem to realize that he could simply roll over more often than not and get up by himself. There are times when he is actually cast and is halfway under a fence, but most of the time he simply needs to roll over and get up.
Makes me wonder if it is a brain thing, or if he just wants me to come and "save him".
Anyway, he is looking fabulous and really filling out. We want to thank all of you who are continuing to be a part of this awesome journey he is taking and helping to make it all happen.
We are also enjoying all the visitors and are looking forward to seeing/meeting those of you who are coming in the near future. (We have someone coming from Alaska). That is awesome.
God Bless and take care. We will be getting some more pix of him up soon. Margaret is visiting and she said she will be posting some pictures to the web soon.
