BABY OK... THIS IS A TOUGH ONE  NOT ONE OF THE 2 PREGO'S WE ALREADY HAD....
.. I WENT TO SEE JANINE  AND SHE HAD JUST GOT QA TRAILER FULL OF RESCUES -- WHICH INCLUDED 3 ORPHANED FOALS WHICH ALL SEEMED TO BE NURSING OFF ONE  TERRIBLY THIN MOM.. IN THE LOAD WAS ANOTHER JENNY EXXTREMELY PREGO.. SO RATHER THAN HAVE HER FOAL IN JANINE'S CONFUSION, WE BROUGHT HER HERE.. SHE HAS A COUGH SO WITH BRYANS ADVICE WE SHOTHER WITHTEH ANTIBIOTIC OF CHOICE ( WE HAVE A BIG BOTTLE INTHE FRIDGE) -- AT ?10:30pm SOMEONE CALLED ME TO SAY SHE WAS DYING, WHEN IN FACT SHE WAS IN LABOR. AND DELIVERED A  NICE BABY...  BUT THEN DIDN'T GET UP--  WASN'T FLAT OUT DEAD, BUT NOT GETTING UP SO THE FOAL COUED NURSE-- JANINE WAS THERE AND I WAS ON TEH CAMERA END... BRIAN WAS CALLED... AND BETWEEN HE AND JANINE, THEY GOT MOM UP AND JANINE NURSED ABOTU 8 OZ  FROM MOM-- SOME OF JANINE'S COMMENTS WERE PRETTY GOOD... HE SLOWLY POURED TEH MILK INTO THE FOAL-- WHO THEN PERKED UP CONSIDERABLY-- MOM HAS STAYED ON HER FEET SINCE... BUT SHE IS IN TOUGH SHAPE-
 IIF WE CAN KEEP HER ALIVE AND ON HER FEET FOR THE NEXT 5 DAYS,  IT WILL BE A SMALL MIRACLE--AT WHICH POINT WE COUD REARRAINGE THE 3 NURSING FOALS OFF THE ONE AT JANINE'S  WHO ARE OLDER AND CAN EAT FOAL REPLACER--  MOTHER DONKEYS ARE VERY AGREEABLE ABOUT THAT USUALLY.

SO... BASIC PLAN IS TO DO WHATEVER TO KEEP THIS MOM GOING... AND PUT  THAT OTHER MOTHER AT JANINE'S ON WHATEVER DIET SHE WANTS AND VITAMINES..... WHATEVER...  I HAVE HEARD OF BEER BEING  A  GOOD TRY...  IT IS GRAIN BASED...

JUDY IS SHANNON TODAY- SO SHE WILL BE RUNNING THE BARN...

I am  in SW Florida. The hurricane didnt do any damage to our houses. However my parents and I were ordered to evacuate and went to an evac shelter sat afternoon, where my dad got sick. At around 11pm I called 911. The worst part of the storm had not started. Unfortunately my dad had multiple pulmonary embolisms and died right in front of us. The EMTs worked on him and got him to the hospital but once the clots moved he was essentially dead. My 10 yr old dane was the most well behaved dog in the whole shelter including all the service dogs. When they were working on my dad, my dogs best buddy, he laid at attention on his mat and didnt move or say a word. He did not take his eyes off my dad. Its like he knew something was wrong. We were there for 48 hours, almost 24 on lockdown, no communication or news, knowing my dad was dead, with a storm outside that we thought might be destroying our homes. It was pretty horrible but I had a comforting dog next to me and so did everyone else in our section, including the children who came to see him for pets and hugs. My dog didnt have one accident, didnt pant or get anxious. He helped me up and down the steps very slowly just like the best of them. He was such a trooper.

BALANCE: KRINGLE PROVIDES THIS FOR ME WHEN I WALK AND IN LIFE. BALANCE IS COMPARING THE VALUE OF ONE THING WITH ANOTHER AND KEEPING SOMETHING IN A STEADY POSITION. KRINGLE AND YOGA HELP ME WITH BALANCE. ITS FUNNY THAT IT TOOK A HEALTH ISSUE TO BRING BALANCE TO MY LIFE BUT MY LIFE IS MORE BALANCED NOW THAN IT EVER WAS. I ALWAYS TRIED WHEN I WORKED AND THOUGHT THAT I HAD BALANCE BUT I JUST WAS RUNNING AROUND TRYING TO MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY. LIFE IS NOT PERFECT NOW BUT AT LEAST I TAKE THE TIME TO BREATH AND APPRECIATE WHAT IS IMPORTANT. THANK YOU FOR BALANCE IN MY LIFE. MY ANGIOGRAM WAS MOVED TO 6:30 AM ON THURSDAY NOW. SO SOMEONE WAS LOOKING OUT FOR ME AGAIN BY LETTING IT HAPPEN JUST A LITTLE BIT SOONER.
