Talking of fingers, we were weren’t we? Poor Azam’s good karma apparently hasn’t quite caught up with generally fortuitous karma floating around the ranch! The other day whilst helping Greg the wrench fought back and two nasty bruised knuckles were the consequence. Yesterday our young visitor again damaged himself and bravely tolerated Gregs ministrations until the syringe appeared. Our lack of translation skills were irrelevant….the look on his face said it all, in whatever language!! I hasten to add, Greg wasn’t going to use the syringe, just topically apply some local anaesthetic to his nasty owie. Happy to report that last night Azam appeared to have recovered his good spirits and reported an encouraging improvement in his damaged digits.
I am sorry Azam’s mom, we really are trying to keep his safe for a healthy return to you,…Greg’s back was turned and his psychic abilities (not) were tuned out.
Danielle’s recovery is happily gaining momentum. Yesterday, for the first time since her failed “flying” disaster, the little doeling spent much of her day standing up and got quite vocal in her quest for carrots, peanuts or any delicacy Derek could find for her.I think Derek and Lesley are going to be taking up tree climbing as they struggle to find scrumptious tree leaves for the patient. Our thanks to Dr Maci Paden and her staff of the Clover Valley Veterinary Service for her time and patience, we really appreciate having her under your care!
Nara is very quickly becoming a farmer and walking around the ranch with her straw Stetson on and a beautiful big smile she looks like she has been here for years. I have noticed a glint in her eyes when she gets behind the handlebars of the ATV. The big horses, Charm with attitude, the three Amigos and Molly Moo are all confidently handled by our new Woofer Intern from far across the sea. Well done Nara you have joined the A team!
Lesley quote for yesterday, “ It was SO funny, when I was tickling Hol-ley’s butt to have her poo, she sticks her butt up in the air, curl her little tail, stretched her front legs out in front of her, head on the floor and then she pood “ ..all this with a look of delight on her face. Hol-ley HAD pood and was feeling better. Lesley you too are quite the farmer now, thank you both for being here for your morph from Californian city slickers into Pacific NW farmers.
Due to popular demand Lamb Chop had a new hat yesterday. We firmly believe that somehow the scruffy little ram with a mucky butt spent a wild night out at the Las Vegas Rain Forest café and spent yesterday in recovery. Way to go Lamb Chop!!!
Chicken Nugget, the broiler rooster chick that refused to grow survived the chicken cull and has been rehomed. The next time we need chicken for dinner…poor Chicken may just be big enough!!
Well, it’s 7.27am and there’s lots of work waiting for us down at the barn. Thank you for sharing our day..PLEASE feel free to comment, we love your feedback! Take care, keep cool, M
