The weather continues to be exceedingly well mannered. Warm and bright. This enables Sophie to spend twelve hours outside every day. Not a substitute for being able to run around but at least lots of healthy fresh air and an environment where she can monitor all that's going on.
Big brother has:
1) Started to sleep at the top of the stairs. A point mid distance between his sister in her pen by the front door and his 'flock'.
2) Bob's also developed hot spots. There's been no change in his diet so we think these must be stress related. He certainly is at a loss in dealing with his sisters inability to play. If the scratching and tail biting continues we'll take him to the vets.
He's getting lots of long walks ...
... and is always to be found close by Sophie.
The swaying Jesus continues to attract a small but enthusiastic coterie of visitors. Unfortunately the swaying only occurs when the wind is gusting at speeds in excess of 60 km/h. Calm quiet days just don't cut it.
Sophie doesn't complain but she's at that stage where the stitches can't come out too soon. The poor thing doesn't ( thankfully ) know she's got a second round of leg surgery coming up.
