Clinic Routine - Home Scramble

I guess it's a good thing that I haven't much to write about. The anti-body treatments are ongoing and very routine. I've lost count, but another Cat Scan should be coming up next month some time. My kidney stone is bothering me less for some reason, but my sinus problem continues and is very aggravating. My biggest problem lately is the dumb donkeys!! There are two fields off of the barn..Things had been going very good with the llamas and male donkeys in one field and the momma donkeys and their young in the other. Well, we had what I guess you could call "an apple basket upset". I went to the barn one day and all the llamas were on the donkey side with two male donkeys and the "head" jack, Bucky, was with all the females in the other field. He apparently pushed the connecting gate out and we changed sides. Then Bucky and his son, Eeyore, who he is always picking on ended up back with the llamas. So, we took those two across to the "small barn" and field. Then the other day, just when I though things had settled down, they broke through the fence onto the neighbors pasture. You know the grass is always greener on the other side, right? He called and I checked and they were back. The next day they were back over there again. They came back for feed and I found the hole and put four strands of barbed wire over it. I hope they don't break that down, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. Gave me one heck of a back ache before I was done. We've procrastinated over selling any young ones so we may be stuck with them for the winter. I know at least one, Jemima, is pregnant again, getting fat already. Oh the joys of a part-time farmer. The donkeys make the llamas seem like angels. A good thing I'm operating at atleast 90%. Days like yesterday I need to be 100%. Okay, it's all right to laugh. Until next time, good health to all of you.
