One Down.....4 to go !

Zorba...waiting just before his injection ! He's a lovely natured boy ...

What a weekend.....definitely winter out there....

Swollen still but alot less inflamed, I hope the treatment works and he's soon better !



This morning I had to give Zorba one of his 5 injections, thankfully his is a lovely boy and I managed to do this better than I had thought !

I decided to tie him up in the corner, then so he couldn't pre-empt my moment of the injection, I put a towel over his head.....its not nice having to give the injections but it went really well. Tomorrow I will do it on the other side....to try not to make one side too sore !

I managed to take a photo for those who are interested.....the redness has calmed down alot, but the swelling is still there.....mind you, it has reduced for sure.

We were battered by horrendous weather over the weekend, so I thought Id share a photo..looking out of the porch window......sleet showers and 80mph gales.....what a weekend.

Well it never rains but it pours...and sadly things usually happen in threes......tonight when I brought the girls in for bed, I noticed that Pacosha had a really sore eye, needless to say she has had some anti-biotic cream put in there tonight so I hope she feels easier....I think she might have poked it, we are in full nurse mode at the moment !!

I have been thinking about what has happened to Zorba....and I was wondering, if he had either been stung or maybe even bitten by something.....

Its definitely a mystery.

Glad the first injection went well.

Poor boy! Poor you, it's hard to see our herd hurt. At least eyes seem to heal very quickly.

Poor boy no wonder he was under the weather...I was in no doubt that those injections would be administered single-handedly...well done!
