A few day’s back I was offered Puzzah (Lambie’s father).
Daisy, Flossie and I went over to see him and we agreed he could come and live at Thordale.
So, today, we went over to fetch Puzzah.
I put some food down for him and I popped a horse’s headcollar on (upsidedown – it works perfectly) to act as a harness. He is much easier to handle with this on.
Then I went outside to tell the Boyzens that we had a new recruit.
Lambie took it very well, as did ‘Bert but I am not sure about ‘Ster – he has issues and maybe difficult.
Just not today. I had words with ‘Ster about his attitude and, as my mother would say, “we will see”.
Meanwhile, Puzzah was waiting patiently in the stable.
He is a dear boy. We have had a few chats and, like Lambie, he hates carrots but loves hard feed. The way to his heart.
Puzzah will be getting lots of that and green grass, while it is around.
And then, in the afternoon, the vet arrived and this was what we had been waiting for….
Puzzah had to be fully castrated. He can’t live here as a ram. It would not be a wise decision.
So, the offending articles, under masses of local anaesthetic, antibiotics and long-acting painkillers, were duly removed.
Poor lad – but thems are the Terms if he wants to be a Boyzenberry.
It was a successful operation. Puzzah is now happily residing in Lambie’s best bedroom – grass, wifi, radio and hard feed once a day. The others are in their field – much to their horror and we will do the full “Meet n’ Greet” maybe tomorrow. We will see.
Anywho, can anyone spot Newt in his new-to-the-herd field? He is teensy tiny!
