wow what a concept...a full nights sleep.
it was jerome the rooster who woke me up at 5...that fellow hasn't a clue how to cock-a-doodle-doo...he just goes for ERCH-A-ERCH-A-EEERRRCHHHHHHH!!!
it is like fingernails on a blackboard....he sounds like his throat is a very broken kazoo.
its ok jerome...i can't sing very well anymore either...at least you keep trying to sing your song, where as i try not to.
i am going to give jewels meds early...she is pacing this morning, i think she is sore. i already tried to give them with a cheese slice but she spit them out...i will have to go looking for the pill pockets (i think they are on my dresser)...those always work.
i haven't used cheese slices for meds in more than a year but jewel still remembers and is having nothing to do with them.
caspar is sore...the last couple of days too... so i have started him on some metacam. at first i thought he was just upset (he is a sensitive little dog) but i have heard him yelp when moving a couple of times so i think it is pain.
anyway...i gave maudie her meds early too so she will have good pain control on board before she starts charging around in the fields.
AND i better go feed and set loose the barn crew, do up the diabetics and get my butt into work... 2 shifts down...3 to go and then i can just do one job (at least for a couple of days.)
hope everything goes smoothly for anyone coming here today.
