Rainy Days Give Donkeys Cabin (Barn) Fever, Toby is Officially an Old Dog, the Farrier Comes for Another Visit and Other Riveting News at the Lazy Vegan!
Miz Wasabi hopping along!Wow, another week has come and gone! It was a bit of a stormy week and we need the rain, but the poor donkeys really get cabin fever when they stand around in the barn all day long! Thankfully it was sunny the day the farrier came, and this time he was actually able to give the boys a trim! Paco's hoof is fine and Luigi was the handful this visit. First he made it almost impossible for the foreman to harness him up (lots of kicking and bucking - I should have taken a video!!), and then he acted out for the farrier, too (see video later on in this posting!). Toby Coyote (my nickname for the little guy) went to the vet this week and our suspicions were confirmed: he is very hard of hearing and has some other old dog issues, including most likely arthritis in his hips. So I've started him on an herbal remedy that we'll try for a couple of months to see if it helps with his stiffness. I guess I was just kind of in denial about my ball-loving terrier - he IS getting up there in the years!
