Lady’s New Foot Soak Tub

Lately, Lady has been back to her pattern of having a good day, followed by a more challenging day. She has moments when she’s very light and seems soft and present with her caregivers, rumbling when they are around. The next day might find her quieter and less communicative in general. Her moods seem to align with when she’s keen to wander more. On the days when she’s more open and cheerful, she can be found deep in the high grass; on the quieter days, she keeps to a small area while grazing. 

The staff here are making a new concrete foot soak tub that can be moved to wherever Lady is, though it will take a backhoe to carry. It will be recessed into the ground so that she can just step in, rather than having to swing her legs up and into the jacuzzi, which is nearly impossible with her limited flex in her elbows and the width of the treatment chutes. This new tub has been in the works for a while, but with all of the rain we’ve had lately, the concrete would not have been able to cure properly for how strong it has to be. We’re hoping this will be easier and Lady can start having foot soaks again on a regular basis. Today is a better day for Lady and we’ve found her to be a little bit cheeky, which we love to see.

    I volunteer to soak Lady’s feet every single day! For me, there is something about her that speaks volumes. I know I am not alone in these feelings.
