its been a long but decent day. dixi's potential family are here..they are spending the night with her up in the suite..we will see how that goes. gilligan's potential family came this afternoon..we spent a couple of hours together. Gilligan was super good around the kids, and seemed really comfortable with this family...I sent them away to think about him..and we will see how that goes too. I have a few more things to do and then am looking to a good long soak in a really hot bath....I bought "The Book of Negroes" to read in the tub and am looking forwarded to starting it soon. squirt got a really good clean up grooming from ann and Diana today..he was a bit upset but this was way better for him then having to be sedated and sent to the scary vets. barn bedtime went very smoothly tonight..everyone was really cooperative and stayed with the drill which I really appreciated simply because I am bagged. huge thx to all of the volunteers for a great job today!
