Please do, Brighteyes! :) "Sugar pills"? Explain. Haha
1. Today MORE of the back wall on Lacey's stall decided to start blowing off... I'm really frustrated with it. I'm praying that it'll just hold on until the summer. It will get fixed this summer, I just hope it makes it that long. I'm seriously considering stapling a tarp, or something, to the area to make it more sturdy...but I just can't decide if that would actually help or cause more stress on the wood.
2. I'm almost sick now. I'm refusing to say I'm sick-sick...but I have a sore throat and I feel like death. But I'm eating a lot of vitamin C, and I took Dayquil+going to take Nyquil tonight. Hopefully I'll be feeling better by tomorrow evening. I would hate to miss church!!
3. I found the "pellets of gold" and gave Lacey a little. It was hard to tell, but she seemed perkier this afternoon.
I also gave her a dose of probiotics with her breakfast, just to be safe.
Maybe she has an abcess brewing... I'm just really stymied as to what might be wrong with her.
She's eating really well, has a great appetite, her legs don't feel warm, her peeing/pooing is normal, her eyes are fine, I did notice a little thrush in her hooves so I've started treating for that...
I did notice, when I took her blanket off this afternoon, that she seems thinner that she was. Not really ribby, yet, but more sunken-in/smaller. I've been adding salt to her meals and she is drinking+her appetite is good, but I dunno.
She always seems to do this - the first week of a new term is when she alwaysss "implodes". Maybe she's just checking to make sure I still love her?
I'm sure she'll be fine in a week or two, but the waiting stinks.
Hazel looks like a wild man.
