Lady is a Speed Racer

Each of us has days when we move a little slowly, and others where we have more stamina. Lady is much the same way – only these days, when she has more energy, she is a fast-moving, petite powerhouse. Once she sets her mind that she wants to go somewhere, she’s off in a flash and just keeps going forward. Scott has taken to calling her “Speed Racer,” because of her get-up-and-go. 

Last week, she made her way from the very back of Yard 5 (by what we call the Middle of Nowhere gate), to the trough on the other side of Yard 5, and then walked all the way back to the barn – in almost record time for Lady. Her mobility can change from day to day, so we are thrilled to see her enjoying her surroundings to the fullest extent.

    Sweet Lady; I’m so glad to hear that she is feeling more mobile at the moment. Lady has a sweet spot in my heart, all to herself; just can’t help it. Hugs to all of you, there at ESB… from British Columbia, Canada!

    That’s very good news. Hopefully her feet are improving a bit?

      They are never going to get better. But it may mean that the new anti-inflammatory medicine that she’s on is helping with the pain some. Or she could just be so eager to roam that she’s willing to tough it out. She’s a champ.

    Hoping the new meds and old meds are easing the pain in her feet, I’m happy she feels more able to “speed” and walk further
