Today life is good.
After several days of improved behavior from Sweet Pea, I think it's safe to say she's out of the woods.
She's active, roaming in the hay aisle and around thge barn
Helen still pecks her, but I can't really control that. Interestingly, Helen had not displayed bully behavior until last week. But this is the first time we've have a weakened bird since Helen joined the flock -- she was one of the four we adopted from the Michigan Humane Society last year.
It was not until today I saw improvement from Lily, though. But I'm hopeful.
Here's the scoop on Lil. (my college roommate for three years was Lily so this name always makes me smile).
She was quite lethargic.
She's on the far left with her head next to the wall
So, many thanks for your good wishes for both of the girls. It appeared to have helped.
Now, these are a couple of the photos I meant to share with you a week and a half ago following a fresh snow.
This is the beauty that greet me on the walk up the driveway to the barn.
This is right at the entryway to the donkey yard. It's just a small dip down, but it's always the most treacherous zone. A dusting of shavings saves the day. I was in the midst of doing this very sprinkling a couple of weeks ago when out went my feet. Had the darnedest time trying to get up. Friend J2 slipped recently and broke a wrist so I will use any trick to necessary to prevent damage.
