All is well in Kentucky. The weather is soooooo nice – hot and humid. The horses had some troubles and were dehydrated so they\’ve been getting water and electrolytes administered by a vet through a hose in the nose (I forget what it\’s called).
We had an early morning and it\’s a late night, went for dinner at Cracker Barrel which was a funny restaurant and we ate like kings for under $20 – I\’m sure it helps be being under 21 so we can\’t buy the $7 drinks here 😛
That\’s about all that\’s new, we are doing the \”jog\” to check if the horses are sound to show tomorrow and will be checking temperatures on all 4 horses every 4 hours. Nancy and Val will be doing the 3 am check and mom and I will be doing 6 am. Gotta love them horses!
OH and this is officially horse heaven amaaazing fields with green grass and 4 railed fences so their heads don\’t fit between – which is exactly what Cash needs.
But I\’m off to sleep, take care!
