My sister got married in hand's down the best wedding event ever!
Couldn't of have been better...
I mean..LOOK at the sweet, true, love and beauty of these two
Just a perfect wedding with a fun party vibe all set in the East Coast of South Africa.
Then we had a week of traveling, safari, horse riding, wine tasting, etc etc. My FB is filled with images too.

My Hubbie and I
One of my favorite wine vineyards (like I didn't want to leave-ever)
Check them out; Babylonstoren
I could talk for ages about them.
The perfect blend of nature & design & food & garden & wine.

Isn't it annoying when there's always a gorgeous giraffe blocking your way?!
I mean, seriously...
South Africa is crazy amazing. I'm lucky to have my Sister and now my NEW brother
in Law live there, so I can visit!
Returning home to the furrkids is always such a great fill for the heart though.
It's been about 10 weeks since Mason's surgery and I took him to the barn the other day
Can't you just see his eyes are saying "NO WAY...DO I REALLY GETS TO GO!?!!!"
So cute that Laz comes up to greet me when I arrive (sometimes!)
He's been a little stiffer than normal, so the movement for him is so great.
I wish I could fill the one track with pea gravel to help stimulate hoof growth and natural wear
It's about an acre long and would help tremendously, but maybe in the future...
Do you see an extra little body back there!?
It's adorable Pito, the BO's 13 yr old OTTB baby.
He's been at her show barn being leased out and is home for a little break.
Right now he's odd man out, as Laz and Justin have morphed into one being.
Things are right again-Mason was even happy to see Laz and Laz seemed to remember Mason with no issue as Mason ran under his tail at one point (lord!!)
Happy, happy boy!
Some quiet QT with the boys in the shade
Of course, after a nice grooming, Laz wants to roll away any evidence that he's cared for, with a good sand roll
Romper room with Justin
Laz's signature moonwalk "get off me" backward maneuver
It's funny how fast they can move backwards!
I think he's adapted this move by protecting his hind end and not wanting to kick out.
Mason chilling in the shade being it was 90 degrees
He was TIRED but so happy to be back at the barn.
A Lab with a toy in his mouth=happy Lab
I get to barn sit for a week starting tomorrow.
Lots of good time with Laz which is perfect timing and they aren't charging me board this month
$$ to put towards Vet bill.
Tired and thankful eyes.
I'll be bringing Mason with me 2-3 times a week to build him back up and weather permitting
I have our appointment for Laz tomorrow (Saturday morning) for digital xrays (hinds as on now, only) and ultrasounds. With that information, a trimming set up should hopefully start making new head way. He's looking more stiff to me lately and I want to get to the bottom of it.
Plus it's good to compare to our last Rads in November to see if sole growth has improved.
