BHFER Sunday & Monday (7/14 & 15/13) Update

Sunday: Betsy Rose has been with us 4 weeks today (she arrived June 14th). She was too weak to stand the day she arrived and for a few days after. The sling has been her life line. It’s taken a lot of time and effort but she is now able to take short walks out of the sling. She needs to build muscle and stamina. She has a long rehab ahead of her but that’s ok – we believe in her! Her positive "can-do!" attitude is helping her every step of the way – we’re very proud of her baby steps!

This photo was taken a couple of days after her arrival. She was too weak to stand or to even hold her head up.

July 14th. She still stays in the sling but we take her out for a few minutes each day (weather permitting) for a short walk.

Betsy Rose has a full cataract in her right eye and sees shadows. She has a small cataract in her left eye. She has great hearing – the door to the feed room squeaks just a tad and when she hears that she perks up and asks for room service!

With all of the real grass around the house to eat why does Penny still insist on trying to eat the fake grass door mat?

After tossing the mat she decided we don’t need a boot cleaner at the bottom of the stairs either. So she picked it up and carried it away!

Our daughter, Katie, with CaryLou – everyone loves this little guy! We are naughty here – we teach the horses to give kisses!

Ariel and Celesta will be going to their new home on Monday. It’s always bittersweet when horses go to their new homes – but this is what we do. I’m very glad they will be staying together. I call Celesta my "little reindeer" because she loves to try to take off like she’s about to fly a sleigh! She is a lap baby but she’s getting too big for that!

It was pouring rain in this picture with the sun shining down on our boys!
