Just popping in to say we’re going away for the weekend so I may or may not be around for the next few days. We’re taking the laptop so we’ll see if I use it much. In an effort to sleep better and quit stressing out so much I’ve left the computer in the kitchen the last few days instead of taking it to bed with me. I’ve been enjoying a few good books and trying to give myself a couple hours each evening where I say enough is enough and just sit down. I’m trying really hard to get 8-9 good hours of sleep in. So far, so good.
A few quick updates:
-Of the 12 eggs that went into lockdown 10 hatched so we have some fuzzy new additions! 🙂
-I left work on Monday and took 3 dead lambs down to Michigan State University for necropsies. I don’t know if I mentioned it here but we’ve had 3 ewes lamb so far and out of 7 babies 1 is alive and flourishing. So far we don’t have any lab results back yet. The gross exam didn’t show much except a possibility of toxoplasmosis. That is passed by cats in their stool and is the reason pregnant women shouldn’t clean litter boxes. We’re still not sure and it would really be a kick in the pants if that’s what’s wrong since we don’t even HAVE barn cats. The exams also confirmed that the last twins born did breathe before they died so they weren’t stillborn. I’m not sure if that’s good, it makes me feel worse I think.
-We still have the stray dogs. It’s going to be harder to get rid of them the longer we have them but I honestly don’t know who’s going to take them. I’m taking the male to work tomorrow for a recheck on his face wound and we might neuter him if we have to put him under to clear off the dead skin. We’ll see!
I’ll catch up with you all soon, have a good one! 🙂
