Helping Your Foot Health - left foot

Helping Your Foot HealthI have had planter facetious for years. It comes, I limp, it goes. Until 2019 when it was so bad I suffered every single step, for months. I found some relief with an insole specifically made for this malady, but it was not a permanent solution. So, I went to my podiatrist. We decided on a cortisone injection.

Questions

Identifying Tiny Bugs Outside

Identifying Tiny Bugs OutsideCan anyone identify these bugs? They were outside on my wooden patio cover. They completely covered it and I spent several hours spraying them with an environmentally safe bug killer. It barely works so I sprayed them with the hose. There were millions of these. I live in northern California. The temp was about 75 to 80 degrees today. They must have just hatched. I didn't see them yesterday.

His tag is gone, the stuffing in his neck is non-existent, and both of his eyelids are gone. I would love any information about this horse.

Identifying Carved Wooden Masks - intricately carved wooden masks

Identifying Carved Wooden MasksI picked up these two masks at an estate sale so I have no information of their origin or value (if any). The owners of the home had very eclectic taste and seem to be well traveled. I am curious if they are Native American or Aztec? Or just a touristy novelty item. They are about 2 feet tall. Any info would be appreciated.

Possible Abandoned Duck Nest - nest with eggs down in garden mulch

Possible Abandoned Duck NestA duck who for the second year in a row has laid eggs in my front flower bed. She laid her eggs around March 30. I know it takes about 28 days for them to hatch. She's been on the nest day and night. Yesterday morning I noticed a broken egg shell outside the nest and by her nest. When I went out early this morning to check on her, she wasn't on her nest. Do you think she's abandoned the nest?
