So, we are excited for this morning…although at this moment in time the A team appear to have no concern more interesting than munching down the sourdough pancakes Greg has browning in the griddle. I will give an update on the birthing progress at lunchtime…keep fingers, toes and anything else you can cross crossed.
Young Holly went out to fetch big boy Quest in from the pasture yesterday. I was watching the procedure from the kitchen where I had an apple pie burning in the oven. I saw a quad driving towards the horses and their helpers. I saw the quad continue to advance on the big horses and I saw the said quad NOT stop as he passed the big horses. From my vantage point in the kitchen window my heart leapt into my mouth as Quest reacted to the quad and both he and young Holly teetered on the bank of the ditch. The driver continued to drive as he turned to check the reaction to his idiocy and I had a mental picture of 2 squashed people a crumpled quad and a broken horse. Fortunately Holly reacted amazingly to the potential crisis and both she and Quest returned safely to the barn. Well done Holly, hope we don’t see that quad again for a long time!!
Danielle is still poorly sick …we have, I think established a potential cause of her owie…we think that our little doeling was tree climbing and came down faster than she went up. We think that she has possibly badly bruised her ribs or internal organs and since she is still peeing and pooping we have hope for her recovery. Updates will be available on her progress as and when there is something to share.
Time to go, everyone is on the move and I’m still sitting here tapping away with my one finger. Take care, keep safe and thank you all for your lovely comments. M
