I got back from Texas around midnight Friday night. Trip went well, although every time I fly the hassle gets worse I think. And the TSA people really take their jobs seriously, to the point of being almost entertaining.....notice I said......... almost.
Lucy of course was one of my main worries. John had said she was doing OK, but was getting sores on her shoulders & elbows from laying down. Saturday morning when I went out I was really surprised at how big they had gotten in just 2 days. One side is almost the size of my hand, thankfully they haven't broken thru the skin & become bloody. Where they are at, is impossible to bandage, too many angles & muscles. Yesterday I went out 2 or 3 times & "redid" them & when we came in from the races last night about 2am, I "did" them again. John came in this morning with the cheerful message that she had lost 2 of them & judging from the cleanliness of them, I think probably right after I put them on last night.
This morning I'm trying a different approach, if it works I'll take a picture. I'm using honey on the pressure sores, it's suppose to work really good. So far they aren't getting worse & actually look a little drier, so hopefully it will work. Courtney is suppose to be out today to trim up her feet. She wants to put boots on Lucy but I don't think she'll be able to. Lucy's feet are so deformed anyway & she just had that piece of hoof taken off earlier this month, & that is still tender. So we'll see.
Everyone else was OK. Of course John got to spend quite a bit of time, looking for masks & leggings, but we're use to that. We've even figured out where they usually lose them, at least we like to think so. Where they dust bathe is a good place to look.
Still very hot & very, very humid. Our backyard looks like a jungle & it's too miserable to go out there & work. Doing chores is bad enough, at least the little ingrates are showing more interest in their hay & feed. Guess the adventure of eating "wild" food is not as exciting as it was.
