Yeah, he's rockin' a little bit of a skullet...
And as if life wasn't hard enough for the little dude right now, today, he got his 6 week shots. Let's see if I can remember what they're for...TDaP (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis), HIB, Rotovirus, Hepatitus B, um...that's all I can remember. Luckily, I don't have to. All the info is right HERE. A nurse came in to talk to us about giving Rowan a HIB vacc that was still in trial. I totally understand that they need to test the vaccs to get them to market, AND that it's probably fine. I mean, I work in medical devices....same deal. However, I'm already a little paranoid of vaccines (although I believe they're mostly good). So that was a big HELLS NO for us.
He's actually handling it better than I thought. Poor kid.
In other news, Ronin (the horse) still has a bum leg. We don't know what's causing it and it's been weeks now. So, it's time to go to the vet. Well, since it doesn't seem to be super urgent, we're waiting until a vet clinic at the ranch. He also needs ALL his vaccs updated. That's not going to be a cheap tab! Honestly, I just hope his leg is going to be alright. I barely feel like I have a horse anymore, except for the bills.
