....because you are a lot of work to keep going.
Since moving Jackson over to the donkey pasture, his bite and scratch marks have pretty much disappeared. But he's still too skinny despite being fed copious amounts of hay. He's been wormed and I've started a course of GastroGuard because he has a history of ulcers. Maybe they came back while he was being harassed by Mufasa. I've also added Ulcer-Gard to his low starch supplement in the morning. It's frustrating.
His appetite is good, he's moving well (the trail boots and time in the barn during the last rain worked well) and he seems very happy. I just wish he was a bit thicker around the middle.
Speaking of thick around the middle, I think Kersey has lost some weight (yay!). I had to shorten her collar yesterday so it looks like her diet of Fat Dog food and many walks is working.
Our guests left after lunch today so I moved the flowers from the guest room onto the pie safe on the landing. I'm proud of this bouquet -- picked from the garden, including those red jalapenos.
It was chilly this morning, 41F when we did chores. Mufasa was racing around his pasture while Flash watched.
I lit a fire in the wood stove and Brett's sister sat close to the warmth while sipping her coffee. Her husband, Doug, braved the cold with us and helped with chores. It sure was nice having them here.
