Q is spending the day with his real-life "barn friends," the children of the family that boards our horses...yes, there are two of them now. * sigh *. He will be under the supervision of S, an extremely together and responsible teenager that prettypammie and I think very well of. S is off barn duty for another week or so, having gotten a "nose job" courtesy of a cranky horse, followed by some surgical restoration. Pam and I think this is a shame, because she had a lovely nose to begin with, and did not need any enhancements, equine or rhinoplastic. The doctor waved her off from any equine activities while things are healing up--they're so cranky about having to redo work. However, she's paying for her own horse habit, and so a good day of baby sitting will help her along while she's healing up.
Okay, off we go.
[edited: I tortured my syntax. It was S that got kicked in the nose, not Pam.]
