Just for fun: What about that gift horse…?!


Have you ever heard or used a phrase and not known where it came from or what it meant? A classic example is the saying, “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.” We’ve all used it to convey gratitude when presented with a gift. “Hey, it’s free – just accept it and move along!”

The saying relates to how horses are evaluated at the time of purchase. Their teeth tell us how old they are and can provide insights into their general state of health. That said, inspecting the mouth of a horse that is given as a gift can be seen as ungrateful. Pretty neat, huh?!

Out our window: the wildlife of Day Pond . . .


Check out this little guy sunning himself on an old tire in Day Pond next to our hospital! We’re privy to an ongoing parade of turtles,  ducks, muskrats and other critters right outside our window. Below is are pictures of an otter we spotted swimming around as he searched for some lunch. It’s a nice escape when we need to take a minute to recharge 🙂
