I think Tonka is fine! Hooray! He's still on limited rations, with his hay soaked to get more water into him. But I found 5 fresh poop piles out there tonight. Poop is a beautiful thing. Especially well-hydrated poop.
Bella was being a real sweetheart tonight. Standing droopy eyed and relaxed while I untangled her mane. (I got some Cowboy Magic detangler for Christmas, but keep forgetting to take it out with me). Then I checked her bag (or lack thereof), and rubbed some of the crusty dirt off of it. She loves that.
I really enjoy spending quiet time with the horses when it isn't feeding time. Just standing, exchanging breath. It's wonderful.
