This morning right after the walk I ran to Mike and Diane's office to balance the check book. It took a while but balanced perfectly without too much help from Diane.
I wasn't home too long before Dr. Hoerr was due to arrive. Mike left his work and came to help bring in the weanlings and mares, halter horses and just generally help hold. When Dr. Hoerr arrived all 5 of the foals getting their blood drawn for their coggins were in stalls. Apollo, Easter Bonnett, Eli, Ethan and Esther were all surprisingly well behaved for that. Elsa just had her health exam for travel. We started moving the foals out to make room for the mares that were down to be sonagrammed. We had Dr. Hoerr do Indy first. I was pretty sure she had lost the pregnancy and was right. Indy had a CL but it was not fresh. She does not show well so Dr. Hoerr gave me a shot to give her in 5 days. The next mare done was Roxanne
This evening Diane, Joan, Faith, Berlica, Mackenson, Mark and I went out to eat at the Mexican resturant in Bartonville called Good Tequilas. It really was delicious and was a nice treat. Joan took her kids down Meister's to clean the shop while Diane and I went to mom's to play games. It was a fun evening.
My aunt Sandra and uncle Dave Getz live in Jupiter, Florida, right where hurricane Irma is to hit. They were going just stay and hope for the best as Uncle Dave has MS and it is extremely hard for them to leave but this hurricane is so strong and so huge that they are trying to move inland. It is just too risky to stay. Pray for their safety.
