has been such a worry lately. today we lose the battle for baby jack and for the last month we have been battling not to lose spritely too. the vet will have to look at spritely's foot when he is here today, it looks different to me, like the hoof might be pulling away. and jenny has started to founder again. she was in full founder when she arrived here last winter but once she was treated she has been good ever since. i am wondering if it is the season, with the ground which changes from deep snow to mushy mud to rock hard frozen solid in just a weeks time.
i don't know why when it rains it pours, or why bad things really do happen to come in three's. and i don't know why when we start to find and prepare the solutions to meet winter challenges, everyone else decides to fall apart here instead.
all i know is that it is not from our lack of trying. all of us have been giving 110%. i guess you can give it your all and then some, and still not even get to finish the race. oh well, we may not win, and we may not even see the end, but they can damn well carry us out of here on stretchers because we will not quit.
freaking life, it is always messing around. why can't it just play nice?
