jeanette...still down..still trying to get up...still getting herself into bad positions that require us to shift her around which is HARD! i finally let percy in the field with her...i kept him out knowing that he wouldn't ever hurt her but knowing full well he might hurt me. when she gets distressed, he gets upset and he starts charging and bucking at me....that makes it even harder to get to her to relieve her distress when he is acting like a panicked bucking bronco bent on flattening the person coming to help..
anyway, i am not sleeping in the field tonight..i am WAY behind on the laundry and have at least 15 loads..i have a spent full total of like 30 seconds three times today touching and speaking to oka and rusty and tugs, not fair, not right. plus the other guys need me so my plan is to check her every two hours thru out the night which is still more sleep than i got last night. and if she is in trouble i will phone for help and entice percy out of the field with some grain once the troops
arrive. and then i can get thru the laundry, spend some quality time with the new guys and maybe get some extra cleaning done.
boots has a new name and it is "tucker" and he got his new name in his new foster home. chris, deb and angelina welcome their third saint into their home...he is still for adoption but he gets the perfect home to wait in until if and when his next perfect home arrives...yay tucker! thx you guys, that dog deserves everything you so freely give.
we all practiced driving the new garden tractor today...we used it mostly for hauling more and more bales of hay to jeanette to try to keep her from laying out flat. my goal is that each and every one of us is comfortable with it's operation so any of us can use it when we need it to help us do our work. no more having just one or two of us know how to do something, we all need to know how to do things so saints works more efficiently...and anyone who knows me knows i can't stand being dependent...i think we all owe it to saints to be as independent as we possibly can.
garage sale at kathy's tomorrow, synergy memorial garden day here...here's hoping that jeanette can rise to percy's love for her...i left them together in the field licking each other..he.. her head and... she... his cheek, just happy to be together again.
oh and we had to take james bond into the vet...he wasn't weight bearing in his right front leg...he is pushing 18 now...no puncture wounds, no broken bones but his elbow was painful so they did an xray...probably arthritis and he probably hurt himself jumping down from the bed or the counter. they gave him a long acting antibiotic just in case and an anti-inflamatory injection that should see him thru til monday...if no better, i am to take him back in for follow up.
rusty has a vet check on monday to see if his crippled leg is an old fracture that maybe could be repaired and oka has to go in to get his VERY long nails cut but i will book that for later in the week...i am NOT cutting black dagger length nails for the very first time in years...my eyes are no longer good enough to see the quicks.
ok...i think that is all the news from today.
