Delilah Bruises Her Hoof and Samson Acts Up Again

Ginnie BakerLife on the homestead is never dull, especially when it involves Samson and Delilah. In the last few years, since the two of them joined life on the homestead, I never take a calm period for granted!

It’s a good thing the vet isn’t too far from here because he comes out on a regular basis for one thing or another involving Sammy and “D.” I never knew two little miniature donkeys could keep things so active since the day they arrived on the homestead in the back of a mini-van.

This past week, Delilah badly bruised her right front hoof. She foundered a couple of years ago so if she begins to limp, I immediately call the vet to come out and check her. When she foundered, she was in a lot of pain because of the inflammation. She ended up on some very strong medication, taking 21 tablets a day!

Delilah is a very gentle girl, never acting up even though she can be stubborn at times, and if something’s going to happen, it’s going to happen to her.
