Food, Thunderstorm and Vet

Fivla and Vitamin are now having daily buckets of food because they are old ladies and Vitamin has started to drop in weight.

Fivla gets a smaller version of the feed bucket because she was incandescent with rage when she saw Vitamin getting food and she wasn’t.  She has a point. They both have TurmerAid just because it is good for older horses – digestion, arthritis, brain function, etc.

Meanwhile Floss is on point duty while I shout useful things like “Newt at eight o’clock!”

She also doubles as carrot distributor.  One piece or maybe even two, depending on supplies, each.

Today has been gruesome, weather-wise.  We all woke up at 5 a.m. to thunder and lightening. It sounded like something large had crashed into the house but I think it was more noise than anything else.  Thunder and lightening are very rare here in Shetland.  I can count on one hand how many thunderstorms I have noticed in the past 20 years.  Luckily the dogs didn’t care.  I cared and hid under the bed-covers until it was time to get up.

I spent the afternoon waiting for the vet to come and take blood for analysis from Haakon so I cleaned the house.  I am now missing two dusters and the finger points…..

Later: Now blood has been taken and the vet said Haakon didn’t look like a horse with kidney problems (Haakon was very alert, eating and happy) so everything crossed, please.

    Old ladies should be pampered, just like the Old Gents. As for the missing dusters….did you look under the beds of two less than innocent dog faces? Strange to think you don’t get much thunder – we get house shaking thunder frequently. Cat just snuggles in her bed.
