This is what Boaz's knee looked like this morning. I tried leaving the cover off, but the flies thought his knee was a picnic, so I had to recover it. I'm leaving it uncovered tonight. It's still enlarged, not sure if that is actual proud flesh or just years & years of neglect.
Changed Jenny's foot this morning. She's real good about doing the bandage, but getting her into the garage is a challenge. She has always been difficult to lead, actually she doesn't lead unless she wants to. She will stand flat footed, look at you with those big brown eyes & dare you to make her move. Lysa was here cleaning pens, so we got her involved. Jenny does know when to give up, & will do so gracefully if enough people are involved. Her foot looks good, I guess, still a big gaping hole, but that isn't going to change anytime soon, unfortunately. Still haven't let her out to roam around, I'm hesitant because of the rocky ground, & don't want the duct tape boot to wear thru, so that dirt could get into the open areas.
Daisy is still trying to find a boyfriend. Boaz has lost interest, but old Pepper hasn't. Yesterday he was trying to figure out how to "hop" up. He can just barely walk, but that doesn't seem to be a problem from his point of view. Nothing like an old fool I guess.
Cheyenne lost one of the new fly masks. She is the smallest mini & a regular mini mask is pretty large on her. I ordered ex-small for her & Tucker, but until they came in she was wearing a regular one. It's somewhere on the 30 acres, but neither John or I have been able to find it. Grrrr.....!!! John did find one of Jenny's leggings from last year, which was a pleasant surprise.
