John has been here in Oregon for the past week. We have loved having him here and he has had some new experiences. One was riding BaeBee today. He did very well. We saddled her up and he took the reins. I rode Honey with a bareback pad, which is so fun. I am getting … More John Riding Bae Today

After a month of fighting this fungus, I finally called the vet and asked what more we could do. … More The Vet Set Me Straight
