Sickness, Health, and Another Loss
After a long stint of being sick, today I feel well! It sure is something I will never take for granted. The Doctor still ordered another test. The Rolling Oaks Diagnostics is a great place and they treat me well without ever a long waiting time. I do have a long road ahead of me. I'll be glad when this "alien thing" that's growing around my neck is out. Yucky.
Today was a good Doctor visit, but I came home to a loss of our little white lamb. She's gone. We're going out a little later to see if there is any trace of her from coyotes or some other predator. We have friends all around that are losing livestock and pets. In my previous post I put a photo-up of her and her brothers inside a big corrugated pipe shelter.
This isn't the first time, but we've managed to either scare them away or take or doe, sheep, or a pet in to the vet. They would be worked on and it was always an easy stitch-up or a leg-set. I think our Sadie Queensland was trying to guard the goats and sheep and the big mother Bobcat had enough of her chasing and she bit Sadie's nose. We hadn't started going to our vet in Ojai and the one on town had and still has ritzy prices. Sadie's bill seemed huge and would be a deal now at $80.
I think it's time for me to play the "Glad Game." I'm so glad both the new ones weren't taken. Of course it was the little ewe and she has the cutest freckles across her nose. It's really rare for a white sheep to have black on it. Actually, not showable, but I love different in each one and it makes them really unique. My heart is sad.
