- I know winter can dry out your skin, but things are gettin’ serious around here. I feel like I put lotion on constantly, but the cracks never seem to end! Add some cuts from baling wire, and dirt that perpetually sticks underneath my nails, and I have full-on cowboy hands. All I can do is accept that I do not-and will not-have clean, feminine hands. Ever. As my mommy says, I have “peasant hands, made for working.” So true, Mommy.
- This winter, Rusty has been looking especially, er, rusty. His joints are constantly stiff and creaky, and he’s had a couple really bad lameness days. He has always had joint issues and hoof issues, though. He had a very rough life before me. Up until now, he’s remained fairly comfortable in a full set of shoes and a joint supplement. Hey, look! I DO supplement! The old man needs some extra attention, and this year I fear that I need to start upping his senior care. I texted my vet and voiced my concern. I threw out the two drugs I’d been contemplating and she agreed with my assessment. So, tonight I made a hefty purchase on Adequan. I’m new to Adequan, and I’m excited to see if it helps keep him more comfortable. He deserves it. I’m sure I’ll be filling you guys in, as time goes on.
