Mr.James has come down with a case of rain rot and we’re needing to take a break for a week or so while I doctor him twice a day. There’s no way to deal with this while we’re moving since the saddle pads in the heat make for a perfect breeding ground for fungus. Happy for the herd we have been invited in by wonderful horse people just outside of Summertown, TN. The internet doesn’t work where we’re staying so this is being typed from the front seat of a car in town. Phone service is spotty – so please don’t be worrying – apart from the rain rot we’re all fine and that’s not terminal.
Yes! I still have every intention of making it to Minot, Maine by the 8th of November. It’s getting close, but fretting about it really won’t help, so I’m just going to continue to do what’s best for the ponies and keep moving forward as best we can. I’ve been asked about my next mail drop and we’ll be here long enough for mail to catch up if it arrives by next Thursday the 16th – probably best if things are in the mail by Saturday?

I’m hoping to have more of an update soon – meanwhile prayers and healing thoughts for Jesse’s fungal invasion would be most appreciated.
