Harley, Maggie, and Blaze

1 May

I moved Harley and Maggie from the Love Shack to the north paddock so they could have green grass and a little more room.

Maggie and free range hen

Of course, they have to share with the free range hen.  I can’t believe none of the others come out.

Anyhow, Maggie is still thin, but she eats like crazy and acts well.  She’s anemic, but she just got more copper.  I am not sure if it’s just old age and copper deficiency or CAE.  Harley, on the other hand, has a really good weight, but her mobility is getting worse.  She’s struggling to get up.  I’m going to have to call the vet to see if they can check her front foot and see if they can help her.

I’m pretty sure they are not going to make it through the summer.  Sorry, but that is the sad reality of farming and being a horrible livestock (letting them retire).  Blaze is also up here.  I had to do some touchup on her foot, and I’m hoping it feels better.  If not, I’ll have to call the vet and see if they can fix it.

Blaze

I also brought 2TC up with her mom.

2TC

At least she’s doing really well.

    Everything except maybe rocks die. Fact of life. That fact is up close and personal to folks on farms.

    Sadly, we all have to face the deaths of our dear ones, both family members and animals is not easy. Ever.

      Maggie actually has energy and runs around. Harley is the one that is killing me.
