Something isn’t quite right here…could it be that a 100-level class has only slightly less of a homework load than 400-level class…or could it be that said 100-level class has about 3 times the workload of another section (taught by another professor) of said 100-level class?

As some of you already know because you also follow my horse blog, the horse I ride was taken in for emergency colic surgery tonight. As of 8 this morning, he hadn’t eaten or drank since Tuesday night. When I went out at 11, he ate an apple and drank a little bit of water. The vet came out at around 1 and discovered a displaced cecum and suspected a minor kink. He tubed the horse, gave him IV Banamine and something else, and said he would come back out first thing tomorrow morning. Sometime between then and 8 tonight, Bigs got bad enough for my trainer to make the decision to take him to Leesburg for emergency surgery. I won’t know anything until the morning. Obviously, I’m freaking out more than a little. Would y’all please keep Bigs in your thoughts and prayers?
