Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends. How are you all? Rest assured! I am no longer whiny! But I was, because I had a big ouchie in my foot. When she came to visit me on Monday, #1 noticed that I was lumping badly. In us horses, this is often caused by abscesses that are growing in a foot. I was in such pain that I was lying down quite a bit. And you know what? My Mama stood watch over me!
