Quick Update on Roxie

Roxie is doing great.  I measured her today.  She was a bit freaked out by the measuring device, but with some assurance, stood quietly and realized we weren’t going to hurt her.  She is 16h and 1/4 inch.  She has shoes on right now, which will be pulled soon.  That will probably put her at exactly 16h. She also got turned out in the dirt lot which is adjacent to the pasture where the rest of the herd was turned out.  After a bit of fence running and one touch to the hot wire, she determined that the large round bale in the center was probably her safest and most fulfilling, or at least filling, choice.  She contentedly munch on that during the hour I was there.  She at least got to meet the rest of the horses over the fenceline.  Once her racing plates (with toe grabs) are pulled, she’ll be able to go out with everyone else.
