We are waiting for Dr. Weaver to show up to do Chico's "brain" surgery this afternoon. I hope it goes well, I really hate gelding, it's such a barbaric method, you'd think they'd figure out a better way to do it. While he's here he will also adjust Frijolita's hips again. She's been doing just fine, since he "did" her a few weeks ago, but I'd like to make sure she's OK.
She's having to stay in with Jenny & Katie for "weight" control. They get out for a couple of hours in the afternoon & all of them think we've lost our minds, especially when they see all the others going out. Buddy Brat has to stay in with them also for the same reason. He is on permanent weight control & has been for years. Unfortunately it doesn't show in his body shape, he is always lumpy.
Lucy is still doing good in her boots, & gets to go out in the afternoon too. She is getting pushy to go out earlier, so I guess she's feeling pretty good. She is also getting demanding. We assess where the sun is & try to feed so they are in the shade. Unfortunately she "prefers" to eat in the middle of the pen, which is usually sunny. She won't go to the hay, she will stand in the middle of the pen, & watch us feed everyone else. I know under that fly mask her eyes are very sad. So of course we move it to her & she starts eating. For her to be demanding after being shut down emotionally for so many years works for us, & we'll let her get away with it. Probably shouldn't but we do.............!!!!
