More like life eh………
Been having to do two sales at the weekend as it’s not been the easiest of months this one.. will be glad to see the back of it to be honest. That coupled with the eyes having a dummy spit and the bones being deprived of the oxy’s as its taken for ever to get a script BUT got one on Friday and oh it’s so much easier and better 🙂
Saw the gp and got the script and the tabs almost immediately lol. Man they work well.
Its been such a sunny week, all about hay is being made and the fears of having none this winter seem to be unfounded. I have to build a lean-to shed to store some in so will have to up the anti via the sale’s and try and get some more stock to sell as its going out as good as it can 😉
I have done a bit of work since getting the tabs and best of all I have had some help! Long ago I had a youngster most hols and weekends. She was a nice kid and now she is nice young adult lol. Any way Yas and her boy have just moved near by and its so good to have help:-)
Oh and Alfie… he is 7 months old and so lovely but as big a time waister as the foals lol.
Talking of which………………………….. Meet Milly It does suit her you know and Shelly Esmeralda is the sheep for sure and the others I think Ermentrude and Evelyn ……. what do you all think? Those names (the other 2) came to me as I walked across the fields lol. Alba in tow of course lol. She is a heller and Flo though better with her, is still not 100% so we had to come back early. Lol it can get a bit eventful out in them fields……
Yas thought of Milly and its a good nane for her, simple and fits with Gypsy really. Glad she has a name though I really am.
Lil had to go to the vets… hot spots…. She really did have a go at it and as the un-proud wearer of a buster collar for a min but thankfully now its had a few days treatment and some respite from licking its so much better and she hasn’t got to wear the collar any more. Am keeping an eye on Haz though as he too seems to be getting a bit licky at both him and Lil…. Not had hot spots before and well its like springer and I will never use a flea treatment that you can buy over the counter and begins with an F again…. back to good old stronghold cus it works!
The vets shaved off her areas and made them 6x the size, lol. She is looking so much better skin wise but its going to take a bit of time for the hair to grow back lol. I can not belive how ineffective the treatment she had to stop this was….. its working on some but not others and with the heat has come an explosion of grass fleas second to none and I have grass and they are always in it! Just done her a nice shampoo and vet style set, lol Haz too he said with absolute disgust lol. I got the special stuff Pip used to have from the vets as well and it will sort out but feel like doing a complaint letter and sign it disgusted in Cornwall for how ineffective the other flea and tick thing was! The heat is a problem only cus we just are not used to it!
Mind I gone 5 shades darker and that’s a first for the last 5 years as the summers have been fill in the blanks lol.
Much as I hate the stuff I have had to resort to bared wire round the chicken bit….. It’s the only thing this lot of horses understand… I have tried everything but its the only thing that stops them. Even the electric fence isn’t safe with them….. The want in to any area that they re not allowed to be in and they just walk through it what the it is. Not the bared though and I so hate it but they broke the hen-house doorway and it’s not good to have the risk of them making it no longer fox proof by night……. I do so hate the wire bit though.
I have put it high enough to not touch Alba and the horses owner uses bared so they do know what it is and well… I got the young chicks as well out in the make shift run and they need to stay safe as well.
They are two roadislands and pure breed for a change. I swapped a couple of bags of dog food for them lol, I love Cornwall. I need some brown egg layers and these will for sure. I do like the legbars but there are now only 4 hens that lay brown eggs… these 2 will (hopefully they are both girls) will make it 6.
I have a hen sitting and she is on 2 blue eggs and 2 brown eggs so there might be some more brown ones there as well;-)
Right i been out with the camara as you will know lol and Pretty-ne has now well and truly met Aba lol
She had to have the last word, lol.
You all take care.
