I cant believe it but have just been told the ultra popular cancer charity fundraiser "Race for Life" is on the same day as our Sponsored Walk". I am now in a quandary.Do I change the date and if I do will it make any difference?Nobody is going to want to sponsor 2 events around the same time and in every office/works place there is bound to be someone doing the Race For Life. I really dont know what to do but I need to make a decision fast!
Mei and I went to check out a home for Billy Jack Russell today, unfortunately the huge garden/paddock needs some more fencing to make it safe for dogs, however we have managed to secure more free grazing for our ponies.There is enough land for us to put at least 4 ponies there for the summer so this year we should have more ponies out than ever before. What a difference this will make.It gives our own fields a chance to be rested and the staff will have more time to do the jobs which have been put on a back burner throught the busy winter months when there is so much mucking out to do.
We had people here today who are looking for a companion pony for their own and they have expressed interest in our beloved youngster Merlin and also little Sam shetland. The next step is a homecheck to ensure the home is suitable - only the best for our equines.
Today an extremely nice young couple turned up from Wrexham with two beautiful rabbits whose student owner was planning to abandon them because he found them too much to look after! I would have thought someone intelligent enough to be enrolled in College or University would have the common sense not to take on pets if they have no time to care for them .Clearly this assumption was totally wrong and Intelligence and common sense do not always go hand in hand .How fortunate I am that I possess both!!!!!! No comments on this please.
I heard yesterday that little Teddy the disabled German Shepherd pup has been to a specialist in Surrey but in spite of everything he has had to have his leg amputated .Poor little chap has been through a lot but the vets have said they think he will cope well with his loss and he is young enough to adjust.The owner who abandoned him had a lot to answer to but still I hear nothing more from the RSPCA about their investigation. I wish I had done my own! I will be going to see Teddy when he has recovered and hope to take some photos of him which I will post on blog. Sharon, the receptionist at the local Vet will be coming with me as she has been following his progress avidly and being a great dog lover herself has a very special place in her heart for him.
Well its time to take my mottley crew out on the fields, Paddy seems a lot brighter at the moment and enjoys a gallop around with the other more agile dogs(he never manages to catch up with them)I may try to take a video of their antics tomorrow.Third time lucky.
