Improving

1 Feb

Llenny is recovering from the pneumonia, and his weight is improving.  He seems to really like the sweet feed I’m giving him, and he likes the alfalfa hay.

I might have to see if I can get another one of those bales from my nephew.  It’s good for putting weight back on my boy.

The only down side is that he’s starting to think he should follow the lladies and goats out to pasture.  Not yet, Llenny.

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

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.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
