Stan-sure do wish it had rained more for you. Did Stella see the vet on Friday?

Our community party had a small turn-out-only about 20 people, but we all filled our tummies and had a grand time. I only had 1 small piece of my cake left to bring home-I'll have it with coffee in a little bit.

Happy St. Pat's day everyone.

Miss Gracie rose. My deaf BC girl got stepped on at the barn :(. We were very Lucky it was just her toe. I was doctoring her up and she fell asleep on my lap
I think it is just a small cut. I will look a little better when I change the bandage.
I had to get a picture of her sleeping.

That's a temp bandage. I need to find my vet wrap I just bought! Lol

heck of a bandage job critter..lol. Glad she didnt have her paw step on or you would have had her entire head and shoulder wrapped..lol. Hope your pal is ok. My little trail buddy got stepped on last fall. And he limped for over month. But then he is about a quarter the size of yours... happy saint pats day everyone. Never did like green beer.. or green anything now that I think about it..

Stan, I have a hunch that if Montana can find that grass skirt, God will take pity on him and send rain so that he can cover back up.

Critter, an inventive bandage! I had to take a 2nd look to find the dog under all that hair.... Your bandage reminds me of one that I used on my sheep a while back. She somehow cut into her hoof claw by catching it under the wall of the barn (tin siding on the barn). I treated it as I would for a horse with a cut on the coronet band. Then, needed to put a wrap on the bandage to keep the dirt out....so I used an old knee sock. Pulled it up & over the knee, snugged it up with Vetrap above the knee, and folded the cuff of the sock down over the vetrap to hold it. It looked hilarious but did the trick! She healed up beautifully. It did get a big laugh out of my city-slicker kids...

Yes it was a bit over board on the bandage. It was her foot the horse stepped on. Than god that all he stepped on. I cleaned it off real good and looked and there is barely a cut there. The bandage is mainly there just in case she starts bleeding again. She's pretty special to me. I think I may have to attach her to me next time we go to the barn. If there is a next time. I don't want her to get hurt again.

Yep she did. And remembered her The moment she got into the float Stella turned her head away. The vet cut he proud skin off no pain killers Stella did not move but her bottom lip was quivering. What a sight.
New trek next month so she is in it. Providing Montana stops his rain dance long enough to give some fine weather

critter sitter that would help some even if it was just in the garden. The rain lasted for the day and after that the wind has got up and has dried out the ground again. All I got out of it was a quick wash. And the forcast for the next week is a high pressure area again. Nothing but sun shine.

Montana has got the steps wrong or the grass skirt is to short so I figure Ill have to have a crack at it myself. I won't follow the traditional NZ get up, grass skirt and jandles, ill follow my Scottish heritage and wear the kilt. Ill play the pipes while walking around the paddocks. I'm sure it will start something, even if it is nothing more than shooting season.

Its a very busy week ahead. I will be picking up the new horse trailer on friday, a fishing contest on saturday fix my truck sunday and monday then its two weeks of horse riding sorting out Stella and see if I can get her to walk out on her own. If not then its Bugs Ill be spending most of my time with. Two weeks without nut bars to chase after. Bliss.

Cheers all.

Might get she who must be obeyed on Stella.

hey stan.if I have to wear a grass skirt.. I think you should have to also. Im about ready to stop the nz rain dance . It might not be working for you stand..but we just got a really heavy snow fall. And its mighty rough on a guy when snow is blowing up under his grass skirt. One more reason for me to love my old torn worn out long johns.
