While we wait for more queries to come in (just one in the queue for tomorrow -- send more!), here are some gratuitous shots of the horses. The filly and her mom have been united with the other 3 horses now for about 2 weeks. The filly is still pretty small, but now that she has the rest of the herd around her I feel comfortable not leaving her and her mom locked in the barn at night to protect her from coyotes. The older horses may be little, but they're pretty fierce.

|There are 3 stalls and a feed/work area in the barn in addition to the common area you see above. |
1 stall is large enough for a standard-size horse and the other two are miniature/pony sized.
|This shot from the back of the barn is from last year about this time. No snow here yet this year.|
Today is my last official day at work. Having been on vacation/holiday for the last 2.5 weeks I can already tell there is not enough time in the day to get everything done even without a job taking up 9 or 10 hours. Must lower my expectations as to how much I'll be getting done around the place and how quickly I'll be getting through that loooong to-do list. Not that I'm complaining! Not by a long shot ...
