well, darn... the 1000th post slipped right by me this morning!

I had meant to keep an eye on it and write something special!

Speaking of eyes... we had even more neighborhood activity today when we had to call the vet out - the little man scratched his cornea and had to have sedation, treatment, meds, and a fly mask! He should be fine in a week or so, but this was not the kind of activity I wanted to have, nor the kind of subject matter I wanted to post about for #1001...!

In any case, we are now stocked up on Banamine and Terramycin. And we did our part to stimulate the economy!

In other news, I encountered the very first carpenter bee of the season this afternoon. Now all we need is the appearance of the Toad Prince and we will know for sure, without doubt, that spring is here!

I hope his eye heals quickly, that's never fun. And congratulations your 1000th post! Wow, I don't think I have that many thoughts in my head, then again I'm not a writer.

Congrats on the milestone billie. Looking forward to many many more posts.

Doing our part re: economic activity here at the beach - three vet visits in thirty days. :)

Kate said...

Congrats! Hope the eye does well.

Arlene, husband announced this morning that the swelling is gone. Yay! Now I get to give Banamine paste to a pony that probably doesn't think he needs it any more! :)

billie said...

C, may we both stimulate the economy in more pleasurable ways. Shopping sprees on Etsy... riding gear... farm improvement!

billie said...

Thanks, Kate, already better!

Matthew said...

Wow Billie that's quite an accomplishment!

Hope the Toad Prince shows up shortly.

Máire said...

Congratulations on this post - that is some achievement. I hope you enjoy blogging as much as I enjoy reading your blogs.

billie said...

Thanks, Matthew. You might see him before I do since you do the night feeds!

billie said...

Maire, thank you - I do enjoy writing here. It's become my journal - way of keeping track of the days and the happenings here.

billie, I don't know what I would do without this blog to keep me sane. Your world sounds so peaceful and well-ordered. No wonder the Toad Prince feels he belongs.

Sheaffer, I am happy this blog helps you keep sane. However, you should know that one of my most favorite quotes for years was this by Lewis Carroll:

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' said Alice. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the cat. 'We're all mad here.'
