It's about to rain, so I don't think Dawn and Maisie and I will get much done today except for some grooming - oh, for an indoor arena! But my Ground Driving 101 DVD by Mark Rashid arrived in the mail, so I'm looking forward to watching that!

Scout Update and Rain Today
Scout finally seems to be feeling a bit better. When I came to the barn this morning to feed, he was way back in the corner of his stall - a little unusual for him. I went to look, and his left front leg was somewhat swollen all the way from the pastern to above the knee. Now that was worrisome - I called his owner, who was coming anyway in a bit for the farrier. He did eat his breakfast, and I took his temperature - normal, 99.8 degrees. So that was good. She took him out for a little walk, he wasn't walking too badly and the more he walked the better his leg looked. While the farrier was working on him - on another foot - the abscess apparently burst, which is good news. He's still sore but we think he'll be feeling better soon.
