A Trip To The Vet and Getting a Refund
Today we had to take Kara to the vet she was due her booster
She was very well behaved, the vet gave her a good check up, her ears were a bit inflamed so she has some drops to use for a week, there was another concern the vet said she has a heart mummer, just something to keep an eye on, considering her age she isn't in too bad a shape, he mobility has improved now she isn't pounding pavements and she has been having cod liver oil and gloucosmine every day, so the vet didn't think she needed to have any of the arthritis medication but we will keep an eye on it.
It cost £61 for the consultation her booster and ear drops.
I don't know how that compares to other vets fees.
While we were out we popped round to B&Q to return some paint, he went to get paint for the new field shelters the other week they didn't have the paint we usually get an offered to mix some up, it cost £72 for two tins, the day after the shelters were painted it washed off in the rain.
At first they argued they don't refund on paint but hubby stuck to his guns and took photos to show them in the end the manager agreed to a refund.
We picked up more feed for the Alpacas on the way home, I also got myself an expanding clothes airier that I had put in the back bedroom so on damp days I can hang the washing up to dry. I hate it being hung over the banister and on radiators and really don't want to get a tumble dryer.
When we got home the postie had been and brought me two new books I ordered off Amazon
I have most of the River Cottage books so these add to the collection.
Also the latest addition of Home Farmer arrived
I will be settling down in front of the fire with these this evening.
We got Lambert moved into the little paddock today with the help of our neighbour C junior, she showed me a nifty way to make a harness from a bit of rope, Lambert was really very calm and didn't mind being handled we also gave his little feet a bit of a trim and tidy.
That about sums up today for us, how was your day ?
