The vet visited this afternoon to microchip Efstur.
We have not done anything with him. He has worn a headcollar twice – it was rather a fight each time to get it on.
So I was a tad nervous today.
I tied up Brá and approached Efstur with his headcollar, waiting for the usual fight. Efstur stood nicely while I put on his headcollar!
A carrot slice was given for good manners and I was amazed.
The vet did all he wanted to do – microchip – more carrot slices given, headcollar off.
And then he remembered he wanted to record his whirls, swirls and markings so back on with the headcollar. Again, no fight = more carrot.
Done. So off came the headcollar when the DNA sample was mentioned. I knew my luck was not going to hold but I went in with the headcollar and, again, on it went.
This resulted in endless carrots!
I am so proud of Efstur. He was a good boy.
Brá is doing a very good job with her baby boy (and yes she is pregnant and not fat!)
(btw, his nose has a perfect golden hue)
After Efstur, it was Tiddles’ turn. I had taken on board all your comments and thought, as the vet was here, it would be good if he could give Tids a check-up.
All was deemed fine and that was good to know. So we will now concentrate on Operation Make Tiddles Smile Again.
We’ve done it before, when he arrived as a very depressed little foal, and we can do it again. Toys. I will get the toys out. Tiddles loves toys.
Hjalti was a good boy as well. He led beautifully through the fields without pulling.
I love it when everyone is nice. Makes it all worthwhile.
