Today was the best day ever!
We had so much fun on the Easter egg hunt with about 20 students, future students, parents, siblings, and volunteers participating! Thanks to the Walmart in Manor, we had 420 eggs to find! We still need to find about 80 of them. That Easter bunny did a great job hiding all of those eggs! He even hid some carrots, so the horses will have some fun tonight on there Easter hunt!
Shawn and Sarah showed off how amazing Avalon and Cool Man are and how far they have come. Avalon is becoming a little (make that a big) cross country jumper!
Shawn, Sarah, Danann, Luis, and I then went on a trail ride to scope out the trails that Kristie and AJ have been creating for the trail-a-thon. What a beautiful day to share with amazing friends! I am blessed!
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Avalon was giving me the cold shoulder. She was not happy about losing her best friend! The vet came out today but had run out of the medication that was needed to humanely euthanize Okie. So rather than do nothing, he did a steroid injection to the coffin joint to see if that would help with pain management. If it works, it could last as long as 3 or 4 months!
I would like to invite everyone out this weekend to celebrate Okie's life!
Okie has been suffering with chronic pain for well over a year, but he was never able to fully recover after the stallion attack in July. He has been living on 3 gms of bute a day since then. Horse experts will tell you that this is NOT good. Though this is a pain and inflammation reducer, Okie is ALWAYS in pain and it hurts my heart to see the pain in his eyes.
