You can hear the groan can’t you, lol……
Have had a few problems of late. It’s all to do with the increase of the oxycotin and the decrease of the stemitil I think…. They have this thing about saving money really…. Saying that i have been on stemitil for over 14 years so there may be some truth to the liver thing….
Because of the mtx I have regular bloods done and they ave always been ok with the liver results but they decided it was a risk and said to try one a day….
I have had 3 lots of eye migraine and 4 real head ones as well as the eyes so am now back on 3x a day stemitil…. Doc said it was worth a try but she wasn’t the one having the sickness and feeling so ill as well as not being to see to good….
Wonder wh they do it? Money I think cus they did try and cut the pregabs down and said how expensive they were…. I dug in on that as they are adding to the pain control so why take some away?
Ok end of moan…..
Well maybe, lol.
Alba has hit the 3 month stage (if you take it as 12 weeks)
She is nearly the same height as Bre…. She will be a big sheep I have no doubt now. Never really did have to be honest. She is gong (usually) 3-4 hours between her bottles and now has her last at 23.00 and then that’s it till 07.00! Good eh? I did tell her on a farm she would be weaned by now but if she had a mum she wouldn’t be so am going to adhere to that time scale not the normal orphan one. It is what I did with all the sheeps to be honest.
I had a good look at Flower just now, she is due to foal mid month but as yet no sign of any bagging up etc. She isn’t huge and that’s normally been a filly foal…. Its kinda exciting except it all went so wrong last year.
She became very ill just after she got back here… The vet came and she had septicemia…. worst still the vet couldn’t find a foals heartbeat…. I think the foal was dead actually for some reason. She had mastitis pre-foaling…. So this year i am feeding her milk pellets in a hope lightning wont strike twice.
The lad was foaled and was clearly not alive from the very beginning. You know it’s this kind of thing I et upset over re my way of life…..
It was a very sad night and day to follow but this yer…. well the foal was pushing out of her side into my hand earlier so fingers crossed eh?
Hey you do know tour all on sitting up duties now don’t you?! Your ‘job’ is to help keep me calm, lol…..
Was going to tell you about a little experiment i have been given.
A friend of mine has a lot of chicken. He breeds for food and obviously you will have guessed I don’t. But he had some cream legbars (actually he gave me 11 of those recently as well) and he ran a Bufforbington lad with them….
The results are interesting actually. I have been lucky,
he told me I could have 6 and I managed to get 5 girls… I hope and one boy snuck in… A friend lost her cockerel so she has had the little boy and these are the girls. Then have the orbingtions colouring with a bit of legbar flashes and I will have to wait and see if they get fluffy legs.
they are about 14 weeks old now so it wont be long before they reach point of lay.. hey I wonder what colour the eggs will be?
We have rain tonight…. we sort of needed some but the grass in the sheeps bit is getting long so I must get one of the horses to go in there and eat it down for me…
That reminds me I must get a few bags of muck sorted as I have a mate who wants some and also the fields need clearing as well… that might be fun with these here bones eh?!
I hope you all have had a decent week and sorry i am late updating but will end with some more pics (for a change lol) All the last 3 days and some in sunshine….
Saw something today I have never seen before as well. there is a Rockey near by and they were actually flocking…. have taken some pics but they don’t show the whole thing but it was quite something.
Often have Starlings doing it but never-never seen the Rooks do it… Hope you will be able to make it out a bit.
