Gracie's home

Went up to Taree last weekend once the waters had receded at Inspiration Farm and the driveway was navigable!
Fortunately the waters went down as rapidly as they came up, and Lesley didn't need to meet me in thigh-high gumboots!
Gracie was having a tough time with two abcesses in one foot. Lesley did a great job with Farrier and Vet treatment and bandaging, but I've brought her home to relieve the load on Lesley and give Gracie some one-on-one TLC.
Thought we might have to lift her onto the float to transport her home, but NO! She walked straight on, ready to get going.
The mob back home were happy to see her, and she got her appetite back with a bit of competition from the youngsters over the fence.

The weather has changed in our favour. It's been dry since she came home, and good winds have dried out the paddocks. Should be able to put her in the paddock with daughter, Cloud, on the weekend!
