Yesterday we were putting out hay for the herds and I noticed Simba is slightly off on his left hind. Then I saw Mac was completely lame on his right hind. Seems there is always something going on with someone. I separated Mac, put him in the smaller paddock with Cola, Torque and Missy, hopefully they are nice to him and he won't have to move around too much until we figure out what's up with him. Marvin's eye is healing nicely, he'll have a scar but it's at the back lower part of his eyeball so shouldn't interfere too much, if at all, with his vision. He's learning now to stand reasonably quiet while I put the cream in, or at least get it smeared on his eyelashes or in the vicinity of his eye. Marvin jumped the fence again, this time the 4 foot round pen panel! Mr. Goat the woolly mammoth mini is back and I thought I'd put him in with Marvin to keep him company. As soon as Marvin saw him coming he panicked and jumped right over the fence. Marvin is only 11 hands high, if that, so it was quite a feat for him to jump that fence, though he certainly didn't seem to give it a second thought. Mr. Goat is now next to the seniors pen instead. Mr. Goat does have a possible foster home lined up for January as a companion to a mini-donkey, they'll make a cute pair for sure.
Well, as it's been said, you can't please everyone. I'm just glad the Ghost is safe again, she has always been one of my favourite horses that has been through the Rescue.
