Rayville, LA 12 miles. Grass lot. Showers. Fair crowd for the first show.

Tomorrow CM moves into Arkansas. Before the jump we needed fresh equine health certificates. Rayville has exactly one vet, and he was booked up. Finally after considering our options I drove out to the animal hospital prepared to grovel. Dr. Morris agreed to come by the show on his way home from work. After the exams were done and all the paperwork completed I asked the vet how much we owed him. "I'll tell you what," he said. "Just have a Blessed day." Maybe there's something to idea that God looks out for all creatures great and small. And certainly there are some wonderful people in small town America. And maybe the circus brings out the magic in some of them. Thanks to Chris Morris who made today's road a little easier.
