I don't want to jinx things, but Marigold's footsies may have turned the corner. Since we've been treating them over the past two months they have improved pretty dramatically from the scaly leg mites but we hit an impasse with one foot. The only option left (to my knowledge) was schmearing her with ivermectin. I had been using Green Goo and Prid. Of course any and all ivermectin is now securely locked up at Tractor Supply (since covid). I've been buying ivermectin paste for horses and donks for over 30 years and I still can't get used to this. Anyway, this photo is from March 14.
See the little "knobs" on the right foot. Well after one dose of the ivermectin one of them is gone. Hallelujah!
And the little girl continues to feel perky.
After the girls are let out of the coop in the morning and wander around a bit, she's usually the first one back demanding breakfast. Well demanding might be a bit harsh; she has a little chirpy voice.
Here are the troops charging out for their morning constitutional.
The donks will be so happy to have the warmer temps this week to even out the quite bumpy ground in the donkey yard. When it warms, gets muddy, and then freezes we all have inches deep divets to maneuver. Spice especially was hesitant to try to traverse the worst area.
