I was greeted with demands for food from the girls, but only had breakfast for the the two inmates inside..... well Douglas as you can see is much perkier, with ears forward, he is putting weight on his little blue wrapped foot, so it is obviously doing the job of reducing the infection. When Nigel gets back from work later today we will go over and remove the bandage as instructed and give his foot a good dowsing with some more foot rot spray to remove any further infection....... and we'll report back to the vet on Monday morning!
Molly, one of the pregnant girls is also limping, but we think this is more of a horn growth issue on her foot, so that will also be dealt with today... with an investigation to check if it is a similar problem to Douglas.... We learn so much from the vets... they really know what they are doing... Thanks to Amy I now know what to look for.. We may end up keeping her inside as well, in which case Peewee will be able to rejoin her mates in the field.... she's been the perfect babysitter for Douglas, she's so good in the barn.... Well it is her domain.. I'm sure she considers it to be her home, after ruling the roost as a lamb...She walks to heal like a dog when we walked them down the road from the field and she still goes everywhere with me if she gets the chance when I'm getting on with my jobs there... She's one in a million!
