I Nearly Gave In

Ye Olde Sheep stuffing her Face! Edna comes to the front door every morning and shouts until someone comes out to feed her the 3rd breakfast! We are very well trained. That’s all I am saying.

Meanwhile, if you can see the black dot in the distance, well that is Vitamin waiting for her daily bucket.

The rest of the herd know not to bother Vitamin.

Vitamin stands miles away happily munching.

Yes, we have mud. No, we are not having Summer and no, Vitamin does not mind. She gets her food. That’s all she wants.

Afterwards, Vitamin realized that I hadn’t bothered to catch her (I missed my opportunity), so she happily walked back to the herd thinking I had forgotten.

I deliberated and watched Vitamin thinking “shall I go and rinse her mouth out or shall I leave her” but then I saw her do that yawny thing with her mouth and my mind was made up. I went back, caught her and rinsed out her mouth. She wasn’t that happy with me and I had to lie through my teeth with a rustly old carrot bag to catch her, but there was something in me that just could not walk away knowing she was finding it difficult to eat.

Once caught, Vitamin accepted her fate graciously and I quickly rinsed her mouth out with fresh clean water. She knows the drill and we both wish we did not have to do it but hey ho. It must be done daily.

I am pleased with the weight Vitamin is, for an old lady of 28 who had a tough winter.

I just want her to be happy and comfortable. That’s all.
