Poor Poor Desi!

It is a good thing that I like my vet, and he likes me- cuz I spent all day yesterday with him. Not only was it our shot clinic day ( yippee!) Desi decided to really colic this time! My oh my! He was not a happy camper- no siree! Belly distended and painful. He wanted to just lie down. Of course we walked him until the Vet came, and then we did all the ususal stuff. Desi began to perk up a little, but by 4 o'clock- still no poop happening!
Now, that isn't good news! Des wanted to eat, but the blockage would have just plugged it all up, so no foodies!
So off we went to the Vets office. Trailer rides often are poop inducers!
Nope! Not this time. So more stuff down the tube, out the tube ( if ya know what I mean) and pretty soon lil Des started to feel a bit better.
We brought him back home, and waited.
This morning- we had acheived poopiness! Yeah!
He's still not 100%- just nibbling at his food, but drinking and ...well you know... so I'm just going to keep an eagle eye on him for a day or two.

We are all set to move in a few weeks to the new barn. And I am really excited now. Not too much drama with the declaration of our intent to move, and I hope it stays that way.
Stay tuned!
