Twiggy has had two of her old field mates return back to the group, although this has gone unnoticed by Twiggy herself, who is only really concerned about when her breakfast is arriving in the morning! Twiggy is due a check-up next month for her Cushings medication which involves a blood test. Although Twiggy appears to be very care free with most goings on, a blood test is very different story, so staff and Twiggy are having little training sessions to prepare for it.
Thankfully Twiggy’s conjunctivitis has cleared up but she is still sporting a lovely plaited mane to help keep her cool and her eyes clear. Twiggy has had a visit from one of her regular supporters this month too, where she was more than happy to come over to the gate for a cuddle and fuss. The summer holidays are in full swing at the Visitor Centre yard and Twiggy has had many new faces to greet as well.
Twiggy has had another clip to help her keep cool in the hot weather, which she was very grateful for. She has also had a little trouble with conjunctivitis as well, so is wearing her thick forelock in a fashionable plait to help keep her eyes clear. Thankfully this has helped and her conjunctivitis is clearing up nicely.
Twiggy is now sporting her new summer hairdo which will help keep her cool and comfortable though the summer and has found a new spring in her step thanks to her makeover. However, with a new look comes a new attitude and Twiggy has again decided she will now only eat her medication in a handful of tempting feed.
Twiggy has been enjoying the winter with her older lady friends and has maintained her weight well. As the summer is on its way, Twiggy is going to have a clip to ensure she doesn’t over heat when it is warm weather as she has a very thick coat due to her Cushing’s disease. Once she has had her clip she will be ready for the summer!
Twiggy is now enjoying her medication in a carrot which helps with her Cushing’s disease; although staff aren’t convinced she knows the tablet is in there! She has been having a few disagreements with the Shetland girls so has moved to the Special Care Shetland herd where she is enjoying the company of her new friends and a quieter life across the walkway.
