    • Wow Seas I'm very impressed. I walked twice already this week, sounds weak compared to your efforts but I'm going to try and conquer this dodgy toe.

      • i have only ever once been too injured to walk and that was for 10 days. i lay in bed and drunk coffee when the kids made it for me and lost 5kgs. i couldnt even drive as i had to change gear and i couldnt. after that incident, i decided next time to just keep walking, so i did. it took longer to get better but it prob would have anyways as it was a different injury. been out for a bourbon or several. lovely night out if you are a duck. especially round about this time of year!

        • good morning al........................
          5 more sleeps...........................
          okay so reporting in ....................... I went to feed horse late yesterday afternoon (he is on a concoction of crushed barley, other stuff and other stuff). Its allto help him get fat as butter !!!!!!! and as I got to the bull paddock, three of the rising ones were swollen in the belly beyound belief. Bloody bloated. The old classic left side higher that the right, arched spine, very slow moving, DRAMA Crikey it seems to follow me round..................
          anyhoo as always I married the farmer - I was never any good at it myself, but couldn't get DH or DD on the phone...........
          Stole some meadow hay from the neighbours, moved the boyz off the fast growing paddock....................finally DD rang back with instructions on how to stab the wee fellas.................. sharpened knife, walked fellas round paddock some more, fed them the hay..................................
          DD arrived down later with a wee sharp stabby thing, and we played around with goats back, she showing me where to stab, how deep etc............. I have never hurt a bloody fly, so how in the world am I going to be able to stab through the abdomen of a bloated bull calf ?????????????????
          ...............so DRAMA averted for a moment - until the next gaseous exchange........Yay for Gwamma - saved the day !!!!!!

          • Wow, sorry to hear that Gwamma. Glad it turned out ok.

            When I worked on a dairy farm (very briefly), they kept a sharp hunting knife hanging in the shed exactly for that purpose. Never saw it used while I was there though.

            • well done G. did you actually stab them? or just do the hay and walking around thing? you would need to check details with someone you know who knows. I will try to remember to ask any of the neighbours if they know if i see them. I knew an american dairy farmer who was real WAP orientated. I am sure they kept a bottle of cheap vege oil for treating bloat in cows. I have a very vivid memory of her telling me it was similar principle to pouring oil on boiling water to stop it bubbling. i wasnt totally thinking at the time as i have never had cows. but if it works, it is poss easier and more user friendly than the trick with the knife. you can give horses beer when they have colic but i think that works more as a relaxant than an anti gaseous agent.

              • no I didn't actually have to stab any, but we pretended (practiced) on the goat. So I now know where on a cattle beast I would have to stab if the beastie goes down and cannot get up. But the stabbing is an absolute last resort, and then subcut antibiotics etc..... These huge needles allow a small hole to be created, without the need for follow up stitches............ however I am so hoping that I NEVER have to do this one !!!!!!!!

                • yeah i can imagine!! knowing how deep to stab would be my worry. plus what if it moves or runs away or gets annoyed. i wouldnt be too happy with someone stabbing me! have you BBY'd yet G? i have to stay home till lunch time before i go for a walk and i am BBYing today. i had a whitebait omlette for breakfast as well. i'd forgotten how nice whitebait are.

                    • LOL i am saying the same thing. so far i havent gone for a run at 6am in the pitch dark rainy windy night as i was too rinsed. i was going to go for a walk when i dropped the kids off at school but my current work plan means i should go do it at lunch time. i was going to go anyways, but i havent yet. how many more days before the big trip?

                                Time twavel, Gwamma.

                                Sorry I haven't been around much. My brain is doing its squirrelly thing. So, I'm popping VitD like there's no tomorrow, and getting some real sun. And pretty much living inside a murder mystery book by James Lee Burke. Nothing like a grizzly murder mystery to put me back in a good mood. LOL
