What the Huey?


Huey and Armani seem to have switched roles for a week. It began when they got their yearly booster vaccinations. We also put Huey on a wormer "power pack" at our vet's recommendation. Vaccinations and power-packs are both reputed to make horses stiff and surly. True to that, our typically deadheaded Huey, has been cranky and acting out. We found that his back is stiff and sore, so he's been getting to take it easy.

Meanwhile, Armani has gamely "stepped up". He's been leading the way on the trail, bravely playing "chicken" with marauding dogs (deserving of a post itself), and trotting slowly like my mother prefers. I'll need to be careful that Armani doesn't decide he'd be better off as her horse...

I love the picture. That's really cute. Can't wait for the story of him playing chicken with the dogs.

Clever picture! Hope Huey feels better - sore backs are no fun! Armani sounds very brave - give us the rest of the story.
