A Wonderful 7* F Today ............ Brrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!




It is frigid cold today. I'm looking so forward to warmer spring air. Stephen is currently working on a crock pot beef stew. I'm also looking forward to that.........Just got that started. Yum!
Misty is doing well, I will call Jeremiah today and schedule a hoof trim for next week. I will once again put the girls on the Elkhorn Vet Clinic Equine Wellness Program. That is $295 per horse and includes the gamut of spring and autumn shots, coggins, a wellness health exam and a teeth float including sedation. I will still have to pay the near $50 for a farm call, but the program worked so well for us last year, that I just cannot pass this up. Does anyone else out there have a Vet that offers such a program? I think we're lucky in that way because we are so connected to UW Madison, which has one of the biggest Vet Schools out there.

The wellness program sounds like a good deal. I don't think anyone offers that here for the horses, anyhow.

As for the cold, I am shivering just thinking about it. I know the temps are supposed to drop here, but hopefully not that much. I'm not sure I could stand it at this point.

I wish I could find something like that wellness program here. It sounds cost effective!

Like the new look -- fuschia, is it? There is no wellness program like that around here (Northwest Indiana) -- at least none I have heard of. Sounds like the way to go, though....more economical than doing it a la carte.

Wow, don't I wish we had a program like that here. That would be so nice!
Are you guys getting hit just now by that winter storm that passed us? Brrrrr...

Not stormy right now, just wonderfully freezing cold for a week, Think it's supposed to warm up sometime Sunday, I hope!

That program sounds awesome! I wish my vet offered something similar.
