PRETTY PRINCESS

This girl gave us a fright a few days ago - acted so lethargic in the morning after eating and being fine the evening before. She would eat a bit and drink a bit, but was clearly in discomfort. She is almost 10 and we were fearing for the worse. We used the old faithful fresh pineapple juice and some metacam and made sure she had plenty of fresh water and greens and snuggles. After a couple days she came back quite fine - we think maybe there was a hairball issue since she has been moulting for several weeks. She is our pot of gold!

The fields off in front of us during a recent passing shower. The expanse of white is covers pulled over HUGE domestic blackberry fields to protect from birds and excess wet. In the lower left you can also see one of the several wind mills that get turned on in the spring if it gets to be way below freezing after buds come out. They sound like helicopters - all night long!

Maybe the rainbow was the physical manifestation of our joy when we knew our sweet Princess would be ok.

Maybe BL is tired and should go to bed now.

Hoppy bunny dance to celebrate The Princess' recovery! How are the blackberry fields protected against rabbits?

We had a rainbow yesterday too, I missed it but Hef's dad got it on camera.

I'm with you, BL; that rainbow is a sign of joy that the lovely Princess is once again in good health.

Most of the time Princess looks like pure silver. I can see some of her gold showing through in that light. In any case, she's precious!
