pets: Finn

Erynne update...

Her leg is healing. She is barely limping - you can tell she's lame, but not unless you're really looking. There was very little drainage Monday-Tuesday; I didn't change the vetwrap Monday night, but did last night.

I have pictures...I'm just trying to decide if I want to post them. They're gross, and icky.....not sure.

Finn has been contained for 2 days in the pasture. I may have fixed all the holes he was getting out of. He also has a new name: Little shit. Or, if you prefer the gaelic: Beag siota. *eg* Yes, he still needs to be registered. Yes, it WILL be in gaelic. *vbeg*

I'm actually thinking of eachbalach, which is (very roughly translated) Little boy horse. Eachglass is gray horse, which he is rapidly becoming...but I still like beag siota. (Or, siota each (each siota?), for the scots gaelic). We'll see if his attitude improves....*g* (And, if anyone has better gaelic translations, please let me know! I spent hours yesterday with the online english to gaelic dictionaries, and may have totally messed these up.)

Back to trying to spin cotton. I suck at it.

Erynne - Pictures!

OK, so here ya go! Just be warned - they're kinda gross....and not as clear as I'd have liked. It's very hard to get decent pictures of a horse, especially when the horse wants to jig and jog and wiggle. Drugs, however, are our friends, and helped a little. They're just a bit dark - when I enlarge them on my PC, I can see the details...not gonna promise anything, though!

In one of the pictures, you can see Finn in the background - the picture dosen't show all his grey hairs. He is either going to be a nice Red Roan, or he's going to go all grey. Right now, I'm betting on the grey - he has a half-dollar size spot on his rump and a patch on his neck about the size of a dollar bill that is solid grey. Only time will tell!
