Tom: Hi everyone! Tommy here again to say a big thank you for all the words of support. I had a great day yesterday and #1 even gave me a new ball! I have been staying away from the fields with the offending spikelets and enjoying my delicious meals! And I cannot tell you how well my kitties have been looking after me!
Here is a shot of me on one of my walks yesterday:
UPDATE: This post was prepared yesterday evening. As of late last night, I was limping heavily, not putting any weight on my right hind leg, so back to Dr. C's we go. #1 is terrified that it's the cruciate ligament specter rising again, although it seems that lameness can be a symptom of lyme disease. So, we want to check things out. Woe is me some more... Will update later.
UPDATE OF UPDATE: We're just back from the vet's. Dr. C prodded and pulled my leg in all directions and the good news is she does not think it is the ligament, or the Lyme disease. My foot is a bit swollen and she suspects it's just something muscular, probably a bit of a sprain. Normally, I would get a cortisone shot to put it all right but, as I am taking antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, and cortisone is an immuno-suppressent, I shouldn't have any for now. So paws crossed rest and Rimadyl will do the trick.
Vidock: I don't have a great deal to report. It's been a quiet week in our field here, aside from the excitement of Jane's visit on Thursday. Here is a photo she took of #1 giving me a good going-over:
Urey: Things have been quiet for me too although, with the better weather, the whole end wall on my box opens up and I get an excellent view and lots of fresh air!
If you're wondering why I'm in a box rather than outside... With some exceptions such as Vidock and his buddy Big Tom, stallions can rarely be kept together in the same paddock or field. So we tend to be in boxes and are let out into a paddock in turn during the day.
Bibi-Chan: I have been very busy looking handsome which is basically a full-time job in and of itself...
And spending time at the window, admiring the wildlife...
Genji: Here is my Manly Monday shot for this week. You may squee if you would like to!
