Letters from Susan’s Horse at Fat Camp
Volare, my 3-year-old filly, is laminitic and must lose weight. Thankfully, my Bestie, Kitty is in charge. She took my horse to her farm and keeps me updated and giggling.

Hi Mom the camp director here at western exposure wanted you to see that we got yummy hay and ten pieces of grain in the dining hall. Later she said I can go out and play in the round pen with my new fellow campers! They chase me around and around it is so fun. And I don't feel sore cause I can stop whenever I want! I am in love with that cute boy dodge and he loves me too! Aunt kitty wants too know if you want to go on a road trip tomorrow to FC to get some turtles and maybe stop at the biker bar for a lemon drop ( she has to go to the dentist so she may need a little pain killer). When is parents day again ? Miss you love volare ps please send some of that Easter chocolate

Hi mom! Well it's a busy day at camp, little baby Austin wet her bed last night and then cried about it. We all told her not to play with her auto waterer but she wouldn't listen, so it flooded her bed and she couldn't lie down! These youngsters need to listen to us older campers. My fellow campers are still in the paddock today due to the fertilizers, so the hang out by my stall especially my new boyfriend Dodgie . The camp director is off to Denver for a crayfish broil what ever that is? It sounds icky. Love volare ps if you come for parents day sneak me in a PBJ or something.

Dear Mom, I think you misread the camp brochure, this is not the happiest place on earth it is the windiest! We had personal hygiene this morning, the camp director said I reminded her of one of those root beer candies! I gave her one of those looks ( the one you said I wouldn't want my face to freeze like) she just laughed and said those are one of her favorite candies. Maybe you should being her some so you could sneak some to me? Come see me soon I miss you. Love volare. P.s. Dodgie and I are now going steady but I don't have my promise halter yet
