So this is how the weather has been for the last week and it looks like there's at least another week of it on the way......
So the other day we brought the girls back to the house so they could escape the heat in the barn. Elentari's first experience of being on a road went rather well, she spooked at the first car that went past, then decided as Sky hadn't reacted, these things weren't really worth worrying about :-)
Those white lines on the floor were definitely suspicious though.....
She even went under the railway bridge......
In other news this week we have been to see Kinna again and she's looking a whole lot better. In fact, she's showing signs of wanting to break out of the "invalid" paddock and rejoin the others. She was happy to have a headcollar on this time so she must be less sore. Her skin is all falling off though, it's really weird, the stuff coming off is as stiff as a board and there's new skin growing underneath it.
The vet called with Squaw's blood test results whilst I was there, her liver has
been affected by something which is why she's so photosensitive (couldn't get a
needle anywhere near Kinns to take blood, but it's got to be the same, the
symptoms are identical). Vet reckons it was millepertuis (new bit of vocab for me) - St
John's Wort. But why would they eat that with all the grass in that huge field?
Or is it just the pollen as there is so much more of it around this year due to
the wet weather and it's flowering later than usual?
