We just hung out today. Too hot to do much else.

Scud is confined to a stall for a couple months because he had colic surgery. Poor guy.

Sounds like Cora has picked up another client for therapy work, which seems pretty amazing when you consider that a year and a half ago she would hide from everybody in the corner of her paddock. The counselor said she walked up to her new client yesterday.

When I got to the ranch today I was bummed because Cora didn't come to her gate to meet me - but then I noticed she was sound asleep. And missing her mask, grr. Found it stuck in the round bale holder, with a tear. (Still wearable, but yeah, that didn't last long.) The ranch was crowded and hot today so we just hung out in a quiet corner. 

Those bluebonnets sure are hanging in there - they're more of a March-April flower. This plant seems to have seed pods that have already burst open right alongside these newer blossoms.
