Shoeing Duke

Day before yesterday, Duke lost a front shoe and effectively loosened the other front. Flies are out with this 100 degree weather. The farrier came today and gave Duke new shoes all around, taking off the snow pads and replacing them with leather pads in the fronts. Diesel seems to be holding his well - Matt replaced a few nails for good measure but won't likely re- shoe Diesel for a good week yet.

Dolly, meanwhile, is closer and closer to her due date! The vet was here Wednesday and convinced us she would foal within the week. I am personally laying bets the baby may arrive by Sunday. Call it a woman's intuition.

Stay tuned to our blog to see if it is a colt or a filly!
