A Good Day
Lorraine arrived later in the morning to check Gigi's saddle, and the good news is that it doesn't need re-flocking, so what caused her back problem is a mystery, but hopefully it won't return. So tomorrow I plan to start riding her again.
Lorraine also brought a new GP saddle for Flurry - so far Martine has been riding him in a dressage saddle, not ideal for the long trek. It fitted him well, but had a very different feel to the dressage saddle, but after a couple of turns around the arena, Martine pronounced it was OK. Lorraine also advised using Prolite saddle pads, so there's two of them on the way.
Martine is starting to deal with her insomnia - Molly is now on Seahorse Atlantic Kelp as well (can't hurt and might even help her hair grow!), they tried burning last year's storm damage wood and it burns great, so no need to order more, forms have been filled out for redirecting mail and applying for European Health Insurance cards, the plumber is due tomorrow, all the raised beds are weeded and Dave-the-Vet will call to do Aero's teeth in the next few days. Well, it's a start!
Fionn, who had developed an ulcer on his eye, had to have a small operation earlier in the week as antibiotics hadn't healed it. The vet drew some blood from him to make some serum drops, and then drew a grid on his eye with a small needle to draw blood into the affected area. He's had to have serum and antibiotic drops in his eye seven times a day since the op, but a visit to the vet today showed that the ulcer has gone. More drops for a few days though to be on the safe side. I'm amazed he doesn't run now when he sees me coming !
