Exciting day at the farm today!
After losing my farm vet of 10 years recently (he moved his practice to Wyoming) ...finding a new farm veterinarian has kept me up nights as it can be quite traumatizing to find someone who is the perfect fit. But I think I've found her!
I'm so excited to announce our new farm vet Dr. Jules! She is fantastic!
Her first day at "Erin's Farm" included castrating our two boar pigs "Ollie" & "Pork Chops" & trimming tusks, as well as castrating "Capulet" aka "Caps" the billy goat. Then she checked out & vaccinated our cattle "Lucy" & "Pat Kelly" as well as all the goats & our new pony "Beauty" ... it was a busy physically exhausting day (...can't wait for a hot bath!)
Dr. Pol can step aside!
There is nothing more gratifying when 3 bad ass chicks knocking out some hard farm projects....
Wait ...wait ...wait....
There is ONE thing more gratifying..... watching the kitties fight over "Rocky Mountain Oysters!"
Special Thanks to Farm Staff member Sarah Z for helping!
***....and just for all concerned.... the animals were all completely anesthetized for the procedures & felt no pain. They were also given pain meds after for their recovery & will be spoiled with treats all week!
***Public Service Announcement Re: POT BELLIED PIGS***
DO NOT BUY A POT BELLIED PIG for a pet! And if you have already ~ do them a favor & get them FIXED! Animals are not "rentable" ~ you don't get to try them on just "for fun". And it might be a surprise but.... I do not want your pet pig once you realize that he or she is more than you bargained for. Do the homework before you choose a pet. And if you don't have a farm, don't get a farm animal!
3 is my limit! I'm broke! lol
