She trotted!

A tentative post from Patouland. We are closely monitoring Lily and she is definitely improving every day. She is getting stronger and stronger and even broke into a trot briefly today when I called them up for elevensies. Most of the time though she is head down grazing. That just has to be a good thing.

She is wearing a rather fetching number supplied by the West Country Dandy outfitters, Timothy Heyhoe-Inca and Son.

The other closely monitored girl here, Penny, is thriving. She has put on 5 kilos in three weeks and is doing everything she should be doing. Whilst I was out this evening she was whirling around like some sort of loon.

We have kitted her out in a Steele-Farquahar & Son suit as we have had some wintry showers and a cold wind.

So there we have it from Patouland. Things continue to look up but there is a long way to go yet.
