Kola has lost some weight. She's looking much better, but still has some weight to lose. Both girl's are desperate for a bath. Last week they got hosed off a few days in a row because of the heat, but they really need a serious soap and bubbles bath. I will get to that next week as it is actually chilly these past couple of days. Kola likes the taste of her Thyro-L mixed in her Equibalancer pellets. Misty gets the pellets as well. I no longer feed any grain to either of them. I haven't been able to let them out in the pasture because it is chocked full of clover in spite of my best efforts to mow it down. And after last years incident with "slobbers", I'm not taking any chances. Although "slobbers" really isn't a big deal, it means I would have to go and buy electrolytes and shove them in them to prevent dehydration., so I'll wait until I mow it down again. The fly predators are doing a good job and it's time to trim these feet again.
Meanwhile, Mina has managed to dig up my dead kitties and the dogs had commenced in rolling in them. I managed to re-bury them this morning and will put a couple of cement blocks over the burial site. Zoe adopted a new kitten, very cute, however, she hasn't given it a name yet. It's a grey pastel tortoise shell female and very pretty. Quite tiny for 6 months old as well. She will be taking this kitty with her to her apartment when she goes back to University. It will be very pampered. It was tough to see so many kitties and pups needing a home at the Humane Society. Such a great place. One of the best shelter's I've ever been to. It's where we adopted Mina from last year.
I was planning on perhaps hitchin' a ride with a club member and riding in the July 4th parade, but I don't think I'll get these feet trimmed before then and I wanted a little time for growth before I put Misty out there on the pavement and besides she's starting to get her summer flares. I always have to trim more often in the summer. It's just been five weeks, plus the hoof supplements they were on prior and the extra vitamins found in the Equibalancer feed.And Jeremiah has been unavailable for awhile as he had gone back to school for embryo transfer. Interesting as he's very involved in horses and cattle.
