Gayle called to let me know that one of the horses in Ace's barn appears to have the same virus or flu that one of the horses in her barn had a couple of weeks ago. It's airborne and there isn't anything the vet can really do except give a shot of banimine and wait it out. The symptoms are similar to colic and there's a lack of interest in food. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Poor horse. Since the arena allows all the horses to touch each other, it will probably hit them all.
I'm a professional photographer, a recovering attorney, an adjunct instructor of photography at a local community college and a four-time Jeopardy! Champion (Season 26.) Much of my spare time is spent learning to ride horses, an activity denied to me when I was a child. I love to cook and entertain and I am a passionate reader. I am married to an "old god" of the comic book world, writer Len Wein. He's the one who created Swamp Thing (with artist Berni Wrightson), the Human Target (with Carmine Infantino), Wolverine (with artists John Romita and Herb Trimpe), and Colossus, Storm, and Nightcrawler (with the late, great Dave Cockrum.)
