Her knee was injected as I think I mentioned. It's better. Improved, check that off the list. Radiographs were taken first and there are no bone chips, good news.
And, she is still chowing copious amounts of Doxy for her Lyme, and she seems fine. We'll pull blood again in September and see where we land on the titer.
Sugar Bear: is adorable, and has the most amazing manners. His lameness rehab/vacation here is going great.
The pens still ROCK.
And... you know how we are nuts about manure/composting/farm management? Well... we somehow have flies. I hate flies. So... I broke down (I'm a horribly frugal yankee) and bought Fly Predators!!! They arrived, and I spread them yesterday.
You are supposed to get 1,000 fly predators per horse. We have 3 horses here. Well, I'm not messing around, I ordered 10,000. With follow up shipments of 5,000 for the next two months. Then cold weather (wah) will come and the flies will be gone anyway. The paddocks/pens are 99% free of flies right now. The flies are IN the BARN. It's so bright and airy, that the flies made it their house. You know can understand why I'm pissed, and waging an unfair war against them.
After I sprinkled them around, I found myself tip toeing around the stalls... hoping to not squash them.
Today, I'm going to look at a used horse trailer for sale. Can you believe it!?! It's not listed for sale... the owners live down the street, and if you crane your neck while driving... you can see what I'm pretty sure is an old Kingston horse trailer parked wayyyy off the road at their house. I know one of their neighbors, called them they gave me their number, and since I asked, they would be interested in selling it. YES! They had horses, competed in Dressage (which I consider a plus, since anyone I have ever know that competes in Dressage is a little... um... particular and fussy, this is a compliment), etc, and they don't have the horses anymore and the trailer has been sitting there... I'm taking photos when I go today.
Of course there is plenty of other stuff going on, but I don't want to make you read too much. The fence issue is on hold... we are hoping that the DOT forgets about it. Not likely, but that's the status. I'll call that "wait and
