What I See Around Me

 

Running after leaving the pond

This photo doesn’t have much to do with this blog post, I just want to make sure everyone sees how handsome and athletic I am. Plus, most of the photos in this blog won’t have me in them so we need to start with something to catch your attention. This blog is going to be about things I see around me on our property. Some of these things are just normal, boring things but some are pretty or surprising or pretty surprising! Continue reading “What I See Around Me” »

Grazing Buddies

 

Grazing

I guess most people know that because of my bad teeth, I am supposed to do more grazing. Melly even planted a nice pasture full of grass that she said was just for me. Only–no big surprise here–she lied. I actually have to share my pasture with some other animals.

Maple WoMER: A Rabbit Hole

 

Maple WoMER recovering on 09/23/12

It has been a month now since Maple Bunny got sick and transmogrified herself into Maple WoMER. She didn’t really do it to herself, she had a lot of help from the vet. And I guess her infection did its part.

This post is going to be a little gross so you might want to stop here if you are squeamish. To give you an idea of how gross it is going to be, the rabbit hole I refer to in the post title, is the hole in the side of her head that Maple has now that she doesn’t have an eye. So pretty darned gross. Turn back now if you’re not up for that.

In case you do decide to turn back, I’ll just let you know that her current prognosis is guarded. Her infection is better this week but it is still there, probably hanging around in the bones of her face. She might need to be on penicillin the rest of her life.

Maple WoMER: The Dread Pirate Rabbit

 

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of carrot juice!

Maple WoMER (see this post if you don’t know how she got that name) has spent the past couple of weeks really living up to her name. I don’t know why she would do that because it seems like the most horrible thing ever. Not only has Melly been complaining about how much Maple costs ($2500 and counting!), but Maple has suffered a lot. This week she had to go to the vet and have her eye taken out! As terrible as that sounds, I think Maple feels better without the eye than she did with it. I don’t want to get into details about why.

The Kitten and the Capybara

 

Gari and the kitten visitor

Something strange and unusual happened yesterday. When Melly came back from feeding the horses their breakfast, she wasn’t alone. She didn’t have a horse or a human friend or a bunny. She had a little kitten. She said he must live in the neighborhood where she sometimes takes me for walks, although I don’t remember seeing him there.
