Other wise we would be lost!~ On Tuesday I got a call from my sister stating Gorsuch had hurt himself , My SISTER thinks I overreact about my horses and baby's them so when she said he need help I knew it must be bad ...Jimmy and I made a mad dash to Coalville and picked him up , she was right , it was BAD.. This will be MONTHS and MONTHS of healing !~ He cut his neck and good chunk out of it and put the fence into the back of his foot !~ I just hope he heals okay and will be fine . I don't have any photos of Jimmy and I (SORRY DANICA), However Motorboat has a new Friend at the Weldon Stables and his name is LUKE , Luke is 27 years of age and has his own turn out , well Motor boat gets turned out with him now daily and they share hay and rub on each other !~ Its pretty cute how patient Luke is with him , and how happy Luke is to have a pal !~Tommrow I get to go to Coalville for CARLY DAWNS WEDDING Im so excited for her and Ill post pictures next week sometime !~
