The COVID Diaries Jason Volume

The COVID Diaries Jason Volume The hardest part about COVID 19 is that in some ways our daily routine really hasn’t changed very much. If all goes as normal we get up in the morning, feed and thoroughly check the horses, have breakfast, work at whatever outside task presents itself through the morning, have lunch, repeat working at outside tasks, do chores, have supper, and end the day. We have not had any issues getting an appointment with our vet when one is needed. Ditto for farriers. Ordering feed and getting it delivered is no problem. We really haven’t...

COVID-19 Diary, Part 5

The past week has continued to be a lesson in how life off the farm operates differently in a pandemic. Last week I noticed one of our indoor only cats, Joy, didn’t want to eat one night. Joy lives to eat, she always eats, so I knew something was wrong. The next morning I called our small animal vet as soon as they opened. I drove Joy to the clinic, and then called again from the parking lot. I was instructed to set the cat carrier on the sidewalk and that a vet tech would be out to retrieve...

COVID-19 Diary, Part 4

Early April is a very popular time to have a birthday at Paradigm Farms. Carter has already celebrated his birthday and he was in good company over the past week as Hemi, Blu and Rey have all had birthdays as well.  Carter had a video call with his two best friends on his birthday. Lots of people sang happy birthday to him over the phone, some of whom would have normally done so in person. BC – before coronavirus – birthdays are more fun than WC – with coronavirus – birthdays. Jason has spent much of his “free” time...

COVID-19 Diary, Part 3

Life continues in these strange times. The first two weeks of living in voluntary quarantine I longed for life BC – Before Coronavirus. Someone else coined that term but I think it is so appropriate I have incorporated it into my vocabulary. BC life seemed easier. You didn’t have to plan jaunts off the farm for simple things like groceries days in advance. You just got in the car and drove to the grocery store. Now I’m starting to get used to life WC – With Coronavirus – in some strange way. I drove to the bank today to...
