We are running a convalescent home at the present.
Amanda had a shoulder reconstruction on Monday...
making her the one-armed farm gal.
Even though she is at a loss when dressing, driving, eating, etc.,
(her surgery was to her dominant side)
she still insists upon helping out with farm chores.
One armed goat feeding....
One armed turkey herding....
Her shoulder immobilizer hidden beneath a poncho...
which, by the way, the goats find to be exceptionally scary!
As soon as she walks towards them, they take off running across the field.
It's not that they are afraid of Amanda.
It's the poncho.
They've never seen one before.
And that's just how fainting goats are about anything new.
They either run, or faint.
(I was hoping they would faint...so that I could share that picture with you.)
Our other patient continues to be Maddie.
I am happy to report that she is doing much better on the Prednisone and antibiotics.
She is now bearing weight just fine on her back legs...
albeit a little wobbly, but much improved.
We continue to say our prayers and keep our fingers crossed!
As for me... I am enjoying clear blue skies and cold crisp breezes...
and making sure everyone is well cared for!
