Giveaway number two! Just leave a comment here telling me about your favorite bit. Horse bit, that is. Unless you don't have horses, then tell me something else. Like your favorite healthy lunch. I could use some healthy lunch ideas. Or just tell me how gross the rest of the post is if you like. The prize this time is horse related, but that's all I'm going to tell you.
Well, my morning has been rather interesting. I think I'm sick again. I've been weak and shaky and breathless all morning. Which I wouldn't whine about, but this bug also comes with indecisiveness apparently. What was I indecisive about? (Grossness ahead - warning for the queasy. Be glad I didn't take a picture!) What the heck to do with a dead deer I found right next to the horse fence! He's not small, this deer. Looked rather heavy, bloated as he was. I don't know why the poor thing died. He wasn't stuck in the neighbor's barbed wire fence, which was what I assumed when I first saw him there with his legs in the air. His side was leaking a little blood, but I don't think it was a gunshot, I think he was just getting leaky from being bloated. Maybe he caught his foot as he was jumping the fence and broke his neck. Whatever it was, I hope it was quick. Poor thing.
After sitting around in the house being indecisive for about an hour (and waiting for the vet to call back about a refill for Tonka's antibiotics) I decided the vet would have to just leave a message and went out to take care of business. I wrapped a rope around his leg and dragged him to the driveway. He was surprisingly not all that hard to move. Then I wrapped the rope around my hitch and dragged him away to another part of the property for the coyotes to enjoy. I hope they eat him up quickly. He's kind of smelly.
The horses seemed rather alarmed when I dragged him past them. I hope they know I wouldn't do that to them.
Now I have a big trail of hair all down my driveway. Gross. At least it's not flesh. I don't think I could have handled that.
Gotta love country life!
