TUCKER HAD BRAIN SURGERY TODAY


I took this right after he got on his feet afterwards.  He did real good, very little bleeding.  It's so much easier on them when they are young, although Nancy said as tiny as his little "marbles" were it wasn't very easy for her.  She said she likes them about a year old.  But since he was born in September, that would be right in the middle of fly season.  Besides he was already getting obnoxious, & we didn't want to put up with him all summer.  

Jenny is still down.  I'm really getting worried, donkeys or equines in general are not built to lay down for any length of time.  They have a tractor, but I don't know if they have any type of sling they could use to try to get her feet under her.  They also have an Anderson sling in one of the stalls.  She has already shown what she thinks of inside stalls, so that isn't really on the table.  They said she seemed stronger today than yesterday, but don't seem to have any ideas of how to get her up.
