cinnamon update

Just a quick update on Cinnamon.

She’s fine again.

I guess that sheep, like humans, occasionally tweak or twist an ankle or leg. She was hobbling pretty badly mid to late last week, but she was a lot better Friday morning.

Just in time for Cornell Vet to come to the farm and see her.

Oh well.

Thursday afternoon was pretty entertaining. She was unhappy stuck in the sheep shack because the wood door blocked her ability to see. She kept standing up and pawing at the door–in addition to baa’ing.

I actually went out there mid-afternoon with a lawn chair and my reading. I sat there with my hand between the door and wall petting her. She finally calmed down, quit baa’ing, and even laid down. So cute. Once I came into the house, both Spot and Tagine went over to her separately and visited her. They bunked noses through the gap in the door. More cute.

When Ron got home, we switched the door. We put up fencing and laid the door back down (now in ramp mode). At first Cinnamon was happier. She could see out. But then the baa’ing started again.

And didn’t stop.

Ron finally let her out around 7 o’clock that night because she was in constant baa mode. Not good for her and annoying for everyone in the neighborhood. She quit baa’ing right away (yay), but then she kept moving around and hobbling (boo).

However, she was much better by mid-morning so the main vet and two vet students had essentially nothing to look at or diagnose. Oh well.

    Love the sheep shearing stories and photos – what an exciting day! And glad sweet Cinnamon is OK (even if the vet visit turned out to be moot).

    Happy spring to you!
