I got awesome news from my trail buddy regarding the Big Orange Booty. She knocked off my lease for July, since he was lame for the duration. Then she had the vet out, who determined that Ox has an abscess. But! No concerns about time-crunch anymore. Her friend gifted him to her, so he'll be staying.

So you two-horse households, is this normal? One you instinctively love unconditionally and one red-headed step child (hah. hahahaha)?
In the riding front, I've hopped on the half-shod wonder a few times over the past week and done primarily ring work. I've found that when I come in the afternoons, the Kid is bone-dry and blowing, but still happily munching grass. He does better after I hose him off and set him under the fans, but I'm concerned about the lack of sweat. He'll sweat after we do a little work and he appears to be sweating in the mornings, but not at the peak of the heat. Before you go, "Sounds like anhydrosis!", Archie was diagnosed as anhydrotic the summer of 2010 and has been on OneAC since. He gets half-dosed during the cooler parts of the year and full-dosed during summer. Then he also gets two beers a day during the summer.
