What a big yawn Nick! I guess the trip home wore him out. It’s only about three miles…… He and Kipper came home on Saturday and I will go get Lil’ Bud today. Seems so good to have them home and to be able to look out my kitchen window and see them grazing in the pasture or hanging out in the barn under the fans with their eyes half closed. They have had lots of attention!
Miss T has spend most of her free time in the barn with them, braiding their manes, brushing, washing, laying on them and daydreaming, riding, leading them around the yard and neighborhood, loving on them and bringing them carrots. I think by the looks Nick needs his teeth brushed!
We went to the vet last week as Nick and Kipper were showing signs of a little lameness which is a first with Kip since we have owned him. After X-rays and blood work it seems he has some kind of condition from a tick or some other bug. It tested out not to be Lyme disease, some kind of a different strain so he is on 20 pills a day for 10 days to clear that up. I put them in my food processor and grind them up then put them in applesauce in a big ole’ syringe (without the needle!) and pop it into his mouth. He doesn’t seem to mind. He is still on half a gram of bute twice a day to keep the soreness at bay.
Nick had X-rays and blood work and his test came back negative for Lyme. He is on injections of Adequan once every four days for three more doses for joint support. He is so good, I don’t even have to tie him, he stands right there and lets me stick him with that darned awful big needle! I hate doing it but if it helps his hocks them it will be worth it. He may have to have an injection in his hocks as well but we’ll see how he does.
We’ve been going to Mr. D’s baseball games. It is a hoot watching the little ones learning how to play. D really enjoys it and we enjoy going.
Miss T had her Chorus program the week we had the kids while Son and DIL were in Florida. I didn’t have a very good view even though I was in the second row but enjoyed it very much. They both had a patriotic program this week that was fabulous, we loved every minute of it! Also had the Awana closing program a while back so we have been busy going to things! :o)
Awana Closing Program.
We had a fabulous Memorial Weekend. The weather was gorgeous!!!! We went to the coast Sunday after church and ate at our favorite restaurant. I had lobster stew and seafood newburg, my two favorites there. Also the bread pudding is to die for………. I did bring most of that home…….but now it’s gone……
On Monday the guys went fishing and Miss T and I did horse stuff plus some sewing. She is making her mom a wall hanging for her birthday which is in July. We got a good start on it using my Go to cut out the die cuts that she wanted. I got started on another wall hanging and made a booboo so had to start all over again. Sigh………. Note to self: don’t try to do two things at once.
I have most of the pieces re-cut out and think it’s going to be lots of fun! Will post it when it is finished.
Time to get the horse trailer hooked up and head up and get Lil’ Bud so that all my boys are home together. Will try to get around visiting, the days have just flown by and I have not spent much time at my computer. I must admit that being outside in the warm sunshine calls my name. The lilacs are in full bloom and the scent is just heavenly as well as the lily of the valley, with an aroma that is just D-licious with a capital D!!!!!
