I am worrying about Haakon. He is not getting any better, despite being on painkillers and antibiotics and I don’t know what to do. Sometimes I think his lameness is looking less and then he takes a bad step and is hopping again.
Add to this worry, now and I am worried about little Storm. He looks awful. This could be because they all came home this afternoon from being out in a big field, covered in mud. I watched him walk with me and sucked my teeth – he does not have a strong confidant walk anymore and looked like he would fall over at any moment.
Compared with everyone else, Storm is not robust at the moment. He is not ribby and you can’t feel any bones; he just isn’t in as good a condition as his fellow Minions. Maybe he will get bouncier when the real green grass arrives.
The others are all fine.
Tiddles is doing especially well.
He involves himself with everything, just at his own speed.
He is a very endearing little chap.
So I will go on worrying about Haakon and Storm. I wish spring would arrive properly and we could all look forward rather than just going along on a day-by-day basis trying to keep everyone and everything upright while the last of winter blows itself out.
Oh yes, and we have two whole daffodils in the garden! Yay.
