August 26th, 2017 – Saturday The kittens had a calm night – their warm nesting bed is in Popper’s stroller.  They can’t control their body temperature so it’s important that us humans do what we can to help with that.  I parked them right next to my bed and every 2 hours they were fed,…

COOKIE – LETTING GO

I apologize for not sending out an update during the past few days, but it’s been tough. Letting Cookie go was more than difficult and accepting that she is gone is just as hard. Some history – Cookie returned to us from an adoption a few years ago with a sore on her left ear that…

Cookie’s Eye – Not Good News

Earlier this year, Cookie appeared to be depressed – she just wasn’t herself. With her history of cancer, well, I was just concerned.

COOKIE’S EYE – IS IT CANCER?

February 12th, 2017 Cookie’s eye is worse. Dr. Mangan will be checking it tomorrow when he comes to hopefully, remove the lavage from Magic’s eye.

UPDATE ON EMMA – THE FILLY THAT WAS SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES

02/23/17 Emma’s bandages are off, staples and stitches are out, and she’s sporting her new socks from Sox For Horses! These socks are a great alternative to bandaging and they’re easy to use and maintain! I have no feeling or sensation in my hands so leg wraps/bandages are difficult for me to put on the horses. I…
