No, Maureen was not pregnant... That would be a miracle!! Our oldest ewe finally had her lamb. But mom is not in the photo. It seems the lamb was more comfortable leaning up against auntie Dotty watched over by Chance while mom was off having a snooze. Its a shame for the lamb because all his half brothers and sisters are off to pastures elsewhere. He is all alone. We were hoping for twins from Granny, but oh well... Better one than having another miscarriage as happened in January. We welcome the new comer as always.
Despite all the negative around here lately a bright spot was a visit from Amanda and grandchildren. It was a whirlwind two days. We all had more help then we could deal with. It is so awesome to realize just how big Lady and Quest are when the two little ones are helping groom the big horses. We love the enthusiasm they all have toward the animals and activities going on around here. No one wanted to leave. We look forward to their next visit.
Friend Eve is currently visiting us as well enjoying all the relaxing (!!!) activities and licks and kisses from the animals.
We are still working the insurance problem. I am confident we will have a solution, but it will not be the same as it was before. We should have more word on that this week. Charm is under a strict diet and box rest for the time being. He will be getting a special pair of shoes today to help relieve the pressure and support the hooves. Lady is also on a diet and recovering from the stone bruises on her feet. It looks like she will be getting a pair of shoes, but thank heavens they won't have to be special made like Charm's. No riding for either of them for the next few months.
Sorry for the delay in getting going again, but we will try to get back on track. Take care, stay safe and have a great day. G&M
Its me, Maureen, (the Boss)
