Today Billy and
Bella went to the vet for blood work and to have the
vet look at Billy's frostbite. Everything appears to
be sloughing off normally, but we did get some
topical meds to put on his feet and on his face
nodule. Both ducks were very well behaved and boy
did they share a lot of poopy with the vet! Wha ha
When I came home,
I brought the Scovies back to the basement infirmary
then I went out and dug the snow off of the sand
pile, smashed the sand with a sledgehammer and
filled up a bucket of sand to spread on the paths.
After a half dozen trips, the pens were no longer
slippery. After that fresh food, fresh water, fresh
hay and inside to work on the website (here I am!)
and the books.
Rilo is looking a
whole lot better out in the barn, but I really feel
for his pal Ranger who seems lost without his best
buddy. Soon, big guy... soon...
