Phew! I'm now on a 5 day vacation break! I'm also fighting another round of bronchitis and I'll have to get to my doctor either today or Friday. It's going around the school again and I even had one boy end up in the hospital! (poor baby!) I have chronic bronchitis and once I get a cold, it usually goes right into bronchitis... I haven't been up to see the horses since last Saturday because of our winter storms that swept through the valley and our local mountains. I called the ranch owner and she said they didn't get any snow, but got plenty of rain. I'll have a chance today to drive up and give them an extra meal of sweet feed and oil. Here are a couple pics from the desert floor looking up to the mountains where my horses are.
