Picture Day here in Paso Robles… Fernando came 2 hours early!!






So I had been up for about 10 minutes… padding around the house… I had just gotten my coffee.

Ding!  A text.

Hmmmm.  I look at my phone and it’s Fernando.  He’s here early to beat the heat.

Aaaaaaaagh!!  I raced to put on some not-pajama clothes and then casually walked outside with my unkempt hair stuffed into a random hat near the door.

Me (trying to sound awake):  Hi!

Fernando:  Did I wake you up?

Me:  No, but kinda.

So I grabbed the first horse (Wrigley) and gave him to Fernando while I fed the others and went back inside to eat something, grab my checkbook and phone.

Not surprisingly, I totally forgot to take pics while he was working.  I only remembered on the last horse, Gwen.  I think I was finally awake by then.  After all, I hadn’t had any of my now cold coffee.

The great news is that we were done by 9:30am!  Plenty of time to have a full day of doing other lockdown stuff.

HERE WE GO

Gwen. I finally remembered to take a pic. This girl takes really good care of herself. She’s 25 this year…

I brought out apple pieces for everyone after Fernando left. Here is Dalton, licking his chops after his apple.

You cannot see, but Norma is standing in front of her fan. She is much perkier since I put her in with Dalton. She likes him. He keeps her moving.

Missy Miss, standing pretty.

Wrigley was especially good because he was hungry… (He was the first and he’s asleep, too…)

The is BG. She was walking over for her apple piece.

Of course, Finn, being Finn…

THE BONUS PIC

Dalton took Hubby’s hat off of my head while I was holding him… so I put it on him!

In my haste, I had grabbed Hubby’s hat. Dalton took it off of my head while I was holding him, so I put it on him. He seemed pleased.

Does a lone fawn need help? LOOK AT THESE SIGNS to know if the fawn is in danger!






So I know this isn’t about horses… but I thought it would apply (and is important) because so many of us live on rural land.

SIGNS THAT A FAWN NEEDS YOUR HELP.

Mountain View Wildlife Rehabilitation

People that call us and are concerned whether or not they should bring the found fawn in can look at this. My very first question is look at the ears. Are they straight? Or are they crumpled?
If straight , was the deer laying down or standing up?
This year every deer we have taken in has looked like this. The ears are crumpled and the deer was standing up and crying.
The crumpled ear tips mean that the fawn is dehydrated and mom is gone.
The baby needs help!!!
?????????
If you are EVER in question about wether or not you need to help the baby , this is the answer.
If you find one with these crumpled ears , get that baby help!
We always advise if you get the fawn and can’t get it to a rehabilitation facility right away, NEVER feed the fawn ANYTHING but unflavored pedialyte.
We use specialty milks made specific for deer and anything else may proved fatal or create more issues.
As always please donate to your rehab facility as rehabilitation specialists are not paid.
We run strictly on donations or what we pay out of pocket.
