The "abscess Gremlin" has been working overtime, apparently...
I understand your concern, and I appreciate your response; I felt like there was some blaming going on (understandably), which made me feel defensive. I am nothing if not UBER conscientious, to a fault, so having my horse management skills called into question makes the "former UL Pony Clubber" who still resides within me rise up in high dudgeon. (My family regularly tells me that compared to my horses, they rate so low that they may as well be out in the street, filthy and lice-ridden, living in a cardboard box and eating out of a dumpster--not that I would notice, )
So "no harm no foul", okay?
Tom needs to take a giant pill (and I have a suggestion as to the "delivery system" )
