Horse Camp and Denver

The girls (human kind) came to our house for the summer last week. Sara spent her first week in Wyoming at Horse Camp. Kelsey did get up with her to ride the horses with her over in the morning and back in the evening from camp. The event kept both of them busy for the week. Sara got some good refresher and while she was nervous about the horse shifting weight on Monday, she cantered on Friday. Monday coming home the horse took off with her and shook her up pretty good, but they worked on that on Tuesday and all issues with that were over by Friday as well.

Currently the girls and I are on our way home from Denver where we took our alpaca in for a follow-up to her surgery last month and cast removal. Although her toe is healing very nicely (good calcification at the joint, and even the floating chip had moved back toward the correct placement), for some reason they decided they needed to knock her out for the cast removal, which meant fasting, which meant she had to stay the night. This turned out to be OK since I had arranged a day of work for Washington Group in Denver and Kelsey and Sara got to hang out at my sister, Monica's, doggy day care Kennel all day. Crescendo got the cast off and a splint on and is back at the ranch she has been staying at to breed soon.

We also took the opportunity while in Denver to visit Monica and David and look at some properties to buy. Didn't see anything too exciting but got some food for thought. Kind of a new experience. As I type this, Kelsey is driving us home!
