Awareness of the outside world. “Do it for the immunocompromised. Do it for the kids. Do it for the elderly.” Your Local Epidemiologist: Be angry. But do it with a mask on. Some FAQ answered…, Jetelina. In case I haven’t done so before, assist to the friend who recommended YLE.
In Which We Visit The Veterinarian
Instead of having the vet come to us, we took the horses to the vet. First time we’ve done that for routine work, i.e. shots, Coggins, teeth, etc.
Money. Save on farm call.
Scheduling. A farm visit can take weeks. A clinic visit is a matter of days.
Time. Trailering to clinic.
Both humans thought it was great. We agreed that a clinic visit felt easier, despite taking longer. Trailering? Yeah well, we trailer a lot. We’re used to it. The clinic is a few miles from one of the places we ship to on the regular.
The vetting part was smooth and quick. No going back to the truck for supplies. No searching for water. Everything the vet needed was to hand. An efficient vet is a happy vet.
The Rest of The Story
At least, that’s the human POV. Rodney & Milton had a different opinion of the proceedings. They were gentlemen, but there as a fair amount of internal dialogue. For background, this the place Milton had his surgery. Rodney had never been there. [Milton’s Medical Update]

Stay safe. Stay sane.

Are there animals on the moon?
They make their thought bubbles very obvious.
Animals. Initial reaction is a sick feeling in my gut about the fate of the animals. So, I may duck the question for a while.
