I made it through my first short week at the new job.  Long days, LOTS to learn.  It's kind of exhausting.  Today was better.  Pretty slow.  I'll work my last day at the Spay Neuter Clinic on Friday.  I won't be able to keep that job, and I'm really bummed about it.  I really enjoy working with the people there.  To be honest I'd rather work there...  But I needed to work more than 12 hours a week.  Darn it.  I'm going to miss them.  I think I will still be able to do the equine dentistry job sometimes.  So that's good.

Not much new to report here except I actually got to pet my donkeys today.  The weather has been so bad that even when I feed after dark I don't really want to pet them because they're all wet.  But today wasn't so bad and their coats were silky soft.  I think both Bob and Pedro have put on some weight, which they needed to do.  Now I'll cut back their hay and alfalfa pellets, but I think the grass is still growing so they are probably still getting some calories there.  They are by no means in danger, but I'll have to keep an eye on them.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  So much to be thankful for.

Sorry you had to quit a job you liked. But sounds like you are getting a hang of the new job and before you know it, you will be a pro!!
I hear ya on the wet weather. We have had record breaking rainfall all week and it is miserable around here!! All my ponies are soaked to the bone (oops, minus the one on stall rest. She's the only one I don't worry about floating away right now!)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!
