That only leaves Maisie that was due for February 1.  You can keep up with the number count in my side bar.

I hope you’ll come back to join us for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are listed at the top of my side bar.

A Little Extra Hay

30 Jan

I still feel bad that Cutie had to be split from her maa when she had her broken leg.  They are back to hanging out together again, but Cutie still has a hard time finding a place to eat.

I decided to help her out a little.

She really enjoys coming into the middle part of the barn while I’m feeding everyone else.

Sometimes, it’s hard to get her to leave though.

Pneumonia

29 Jan

I know I sound like a broken record, but I’ll say it again.  The horrible warm fall and crazy up-and-down temperatures are really hard on the animals.  Now Llenny has pneumonia.

Unfortunately sheep, goats, and llamas all mask their symptoms.  It’s hard to know when they don’t feel well.  Add to that all of his wool, and I don’t know how long he had been sick.  I have been worried, but I couldn’t figure out any symptoms other than losing weight.  Then I caught him in a wet, phlegmy cough.

I consulted the vet and had my nephew come help me treat Llenny with antibiotics.  He’s shut in the Love Shack now, so he doesn’t have to fight the goats for food.  He isn’t following the llama lladies out to pasture.  He has nothing to do buy eat and recover.  Bless my nephew.  He even brought me a bale of really good, rich alfalfa hay.

I even decided to shut Daisy in with him, so he has company.

It also worked well to get Daisy away from her mom because Bambi is going to have new kids in just over a month, and I kept catching Daisy nursing yet.

I even brought home some sweet feed to try and encourage him to eat more.  Hopefully, he’ll be able to recover.
