When we go to count Minion legs and kiss noseys, we have other jobs to do too.
Fivla has her eyes cleaned daily as they are prone to “goobyness”. It is a combination of the length of her beautiful forelock and the constant wind. Drops make no difference and it is not an infection, just Fivla.
Then Vitamin has to have her mouth drench – she collects carrot bits in her ancient toothipegs and gums so they need to be washed out.
This method actually does work very well and, as no grassy bits come out, that is a good sign and means what she eats in the field stays down. I see no signs of quidding.
Newt likes to play in the water. The string attached to the extremely useful old TurmerAid bucket is for gathering water Jungle Book style from the nearby stream. I have perfected this method.
Then it is time for the pink noseys!
First up is Tiddles.
He knows the drill.
And then it is Albie’s turn – he has a tiny dot of pink on his nosey.
And he would hate to be left out.
Next up, if we can catch him is Storm. He has his moments and sometimes prances about. I don’t let him get away with this.
Then hands are wiped on anyone close. Today it was Vitamin who acquiesced.
Once the barrier cream or sunblock (depending on the weather forecast) is applied, we hop over the fence PDQ (pretty damn quickly)!
Both creams are very white and easily worn for the rest of the day on everyone and everything.
The last to of the kisses – they are expected, no demanded!
And off we go, to ragwort for a bagful.
And that is what we do each morning.
