Just a quick note to say Queen Estes is indeed on the road to recovery. Last night we all finally had a spark of optimism about a recovery - when she got sassy about the quantity of food (or lack of quantity) she was given, but we had to get her system started back up gradually. Explain that to a horse! She even got to manage to bypass her 2:00 a.m. pain meds. Today, she and the rest of the herd spent catching up on sleep. I hadn't realized just how worried all the guys were about her. Usually, Estes is a little stand-offish from the rest of the herd when resting. Today, she was surrounded by three sleeping horses, all with their heads down and tails slowly swaying in the breeze. I would have gotten a picture if I thought I could have gotten close enough without waking them. Many thanks to all for your concerns - and hope life is going well for all of you. Gonna go get some sleep.
