This will be a short post as I’m tired, it is getting late, and I still have to tuck in the world’s cutest fainting goats and make out my farrier list for tomorrow. I’ve also been writing out my dentist list as well. The time has also come to have everyone’s teeth floated again. It seems like, or maybe it would be more accurate to say feels like, it was just yesterday that everyone had their teeth floated. The plan is to have the dentist out three separate times with the first round of floating being done next week on Tuesday.
I don’t know why but I just dread this every year. The vet/dentist I work with is a very nice person and does a great job, I enjoy seeing her. It certainly is not her that I dread. I guess I don’t look forward to dragging in all of the horses and then waiting for them to “wake up” from their light sedation and then getting everyone back outside. It is kind of like a farrier day but a lot more of a pain because the horses can’t just go back outside when they are done because of the sedation. It makes for crabby horses who don’t want to spend one second more in the barn than they have to, which in turn leads to a crabby me who is dealing with them all. Really it is one of those things where it is never as bad as I make it out to be in my head.
To add to the excitement all of the boys get a sheath cleaning while they are sedated. All around just an extra fun few days on the retirement farm! Off to tuck in Mina and Jo, world’s cutest fainting goats, and to prepare for another day on the farm tomorrow.
