Hanging in There

27 Apr

I tell you, I feel like I’m constantly waiting and wondering when my animals are going to die.  Obviously, I’ve been watching and giving Snickers extra care for six full years now.  I never thought he’d ever be a geriatric, but he is.  I just keep wondering how much longer he can keep going.  Now Leo, with his age and diabetes is on that waiting list too.


I spent all winter worrying about Aurora and watching her gain and lose weight with the temperature.  She really seems happy to be out on pasture.  I hope she’ll keep gaining now.  I need to catch her and take the halter off.


Then there’s Harley with her back injury.  She’s hanging in there.  I keep giving her the meds and have her shut in with just her girls.  I don’t know how she’ll ever make it with being pregnant, but I keep trying.

Mary, Clover, and Daisy seem to be in really bad shape too–worn down from having and raising kids with the horrible weather we’ve had.  I’m hoping the green grass and warm weather will build them up.

Then there’s Sallie and Vixen.  They didn’t have kids, but they are anemic.  I’m not sure if it is age, bad winter, CAE, worms, or a combination of all of the above.


I’m really ready for things to be a bit easier.  I’m really worn out.
