11:25am-It's a beautiful day here at Sunrise Sanctuary. It's supposed to get up to 60 today and the animals are already out and loving it!
Missy, the puppy mill rescue Corgi, and I spent 5 hours at OSU yesterday and with the drive 6 1/2 hours. She injured her shoulder and it appears she has arthritis too. Poor thing has been through so much. She's on strong pain meds which will be keeping her down for awhile. They want her down for a week. So far she isn't trying to get up much. BUt, she is starting to bear some weight on it again. Which they wanted her to put some weight on it.
We're getting ready to put the grazing muzzles on the couple of horses that have issues. A grazing muzzle is put on to protect them from the sweetness of the grass. Just like sugar goes to a diabetics feet, it goes to the feet of any equines that are too inactive. The active ones run it off. The only two it is bothering so far this year is Cheyenne and Roscoe, so it's time. They work because they limit the amount of hay a horse can take in. by a hole just the right size on the bottom. Allowing them to take in grass, but less of it.
