First off let me just say that when bad things happen.. why does it ALWAYS all have to happen at once.
Let me give you a quick over view of our pasture situation. We own 5 horses and we are leasing property. The people we are leasing from own 2 horses. (sparta's mom(an appy with 1 named snowflake) and a chesnut named Red) red is old and skinny and snowflake is old and skinny. Not my horses.. not much I can do.
Our cat was recently pregnant and had kittens (4 days ago..) there were problems. We paid 320$ for a C-section and only have 1 surviving kitten..
Charlie our newest addition has managed to cut himself above his eye. And now it's swelling. What can I do to help this? Besides giving him a penicilin shot tomorrow like I plan
Today I checked sparta's sheath. And it's swollen on one side, about the size of a walnut. UGH so he'll probably be getting a shot tomorrow as well
On top of ALL of this some idiot has to put their nose somewhere were it does belong and file a cruelty complaint on the horses because snowflake.. is missing and eye!!! Lord no not because she is skinny as hell. But because she is missing an eye (which she was like this way when we bought her!) so now the Animal control officer is comming out tomorrow to check them all over. And with Charlie's eye situation and Sparta's sheath.. on top of snowflakes eye.. I think we are in for it...
On top of that my parents are beginning to have financial problems and getting short checks. We basicaly spent our grocery money so our cat could live. Now we don't have money for the vet to come out and check over the horses and i'm worried they can be taken away.
Any advice on any of this?
