This week the items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday are: makes me happy, hidden, one, dessert, and modern.
Makes Me Happy: It makes me happy to see the goats going out to pasture sometimes this winter. It helps them get rid of excess energy so they are less likely to kill me while I’m trying to do chores.
Hidden: I’m also happy to know that hidden, not too far beneath the snow, is spring. It’s just waiting to burst forth. Maisie also has kids hidden in there waiting to burst forth in about a month.
One: Helen is just one of my seventeen goats that is due to kid at the end of March.
Dessert: Bambi seems to think the scrub cedar tree makes a yummy dessert.
Modern: I’m grateful for modern medicine. I currently have two animals on antibiotics. Bob was beat up again. I’m so tired of cats that don’t belong here coming onto my farm and picking on my cats.
His eye is doing better.
Bud is also on antibiotics as of today. One of the problems with doing the bladder marsupialization was the higher risk of infections. I noticed that he was looking a bit puffy and wet. Today when I checked him more closely (I had checked Thursday), it was obvious he has an infection. He got a shot today and will get another on Tuesday.
Hopefully that will take care of it. He still acts good and is happy. Hopefully, as he gets farther from the surgery and we get better weather, he’ll get his immune system built back up and we won’t have to deal with this.
