LOL Thanks Moers & Pam I appreciate it! Well, I ended up not going out to the barn today at all that is a first for me! yesterday evening Max's foot looked better, so I opted to leave it alone and see if there is real progress by tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed. I've honestly been stressed about getting Max healthy, and now the yearling buck is starting rut and being a pain - not eating well, and seems to think that Max's buddy, George (wether) is a girl and that he needs to try and get him from Max - ugh. So we're debating moving the wether with the girls for now. I need to see if our 4-H program is even going to have a sale, if not then George needs to go which breaks my heart, but if that will calm the buck down... George isn't all that nice to Max so I doubt Max will miss him too much. So... I've decided to get motivated and paint some inside the house lol. My computer room is also sort of the mud/junk room, so I moved everything into the front room (war zone lol), painted the ceiling and walls. Hubby was off today which made this task possible! Tomorrow carpet cleaning, and have a few errands after morning barn chores. I'll put a call into the vet tomorrow, but unless they are worse I doubt I can get him in until middle of the week if she is able to see him. Fingers crossed.
