Not that bad.

Well, the babies are fine and healthy. Up and wobbling around their little pen. I'll take some pictures as the day gets brighter.
Mare is going to be fine too. She's a older mare- about 20 or so. Not around any stallions, not been bred, not even close.
Just a general mastitis.
What?
Yup. General mastitis. One side only.
Hot pack and antibiotics, and some kind of weird stuff you have to place inside the teat holes, both sides, of the infected nipple. ( Did you know that horses have two holes, and cows have four- per teat?)
Mare is much better today!

Me not so much.
Looks like my job at the Ranch has come to a crashing end. I still can't talk about it, I get so angry! But I will tomorrow.
And you will be shocked! Shocked I tell you!

Glad the babies are up and around and that the mare's healing up.

Glad the twins are fine. Knock on wood I have never had to treat a mare for mastitis. Hope that is over soon.

As for the job I guess I'll have to check back to hear that story.

I'm so glad all of your four legged friends are doing so well. Cool beans. Just remember the rains will end, spring will get here and there is such a thing as karma, what goes around does tend to come around. People who act like creaps do tend to get what's coming to them.

And as for you girlfriend, hold your head up and know that even if this job is coming to an end, something much better is in the wings just waiting for you to be free enough to take it.
