Equine -- and several more pages.

With some help from Kitten the Farrier, I managed to avoid this turning into a My Little Pony, a donkey, a mule or some small prehistoric mini with multiple hoofs per foot. Let alone dog or mutant cat. Whether it's actually a successful portrait of Tatiana's beloved dark bay mare Betty, that'll be up to what Tatiana says about it when she checks the thread. I got the species right, so I'm not complaining!

In other news, after the two sick days lapse, today I got in four more pages on my script. Closer to five because Page 14 had only three lines on it when I started. Up to page 18 and it's most of the way full. I should have ended on 23 pages, but, I may be able to push and get more. It's tough! Not like novelwriting, when a scene is over I feel drained. I've gotten two scenes in today at that.

But I will keep pounding, and hope at some point to hit an easy patch and gain some extra pages to catch up. Just getting moving again today was good.

So today was a day of pounding on difficult things, which I succeeded at doing.
