We cave

Life, no matter how you choose to live it, has its ups and it’s downs, and these last several days have been full of many downs.

Starting with a back injury that has rendered me useless on the farm until everything has been healed, no lifting, and careful movements.

Next three head injuries in two days for the little boy in the house (two minor and one big) thankfully he is okay and only ended up with a goose egg, but still very scary. He has recovered in body and spirit.

The last is losing a beloved pet. Like the rest of the country, we have been hit with a heatwave of temperatures hitting anywhere from 93-100 degrees. Hard on humans and hard on animals.

Sometimes, no matter how much shade, ice water, or frozen water bottles you put in with animals, it doesn’t help.

Heat is especially hard on angora rabbits, sadly Noël passed away. I will probably never own another angora rabbit as long as we live where it gets this hot. She had a haircut in anticipation of the heat, but sadly everything we did just wasn’t enough and that is not okay.

They say things happen in threes, I’d rather they be good things.

    • Thank you for your kind comment. It was very heartbreaking, I’m very hesitant to move forward with getting anymore animals until we get the woods fenced off for more shade.

      This is a time where I wish we had air conditioning, I would have brought her inside the house. Sadly the house gets just as hot.
