Changes

There are changes in the wind.  1) I am now an official veterinarian.  I graduated last week!  2) I am finally now home forever! 3) Spring really did finally come...it really took it's time, but now that it is here things are really blooming. 4) I am trying to get Cody in foal.  So far, we are at the monitoring stage, since I am just now at home.  On Friday it looked like she had just ovulated, so I'm going to short-cycle her and try to catch her this time.  Semen will be cooled-shipped.

I turned the horses out into the big pasture for an hour today to graze a little.  We wanted to replant the thin areas this spring, but didn't have the right weather.  Then, when we should have planted, we just didn't have time, with all the graduation activities.  So they've been kept off this pasture and now the grass has really grown up.  They were pretty excited to get out there.  They wouldn't have brought their heads up from the grass for that whole hour if I hadn't urged them to run just to take some pictures.

Congratulations! That is an incredibly big deal. Good for you for all your hard work.

I want to see the stallion you chose! Can't wait to hear more about that.

Beautiful photos of beautiful horses! I bet they were in heaven with all that green grass.
