    Awww.... she is so healthy and beautiful. Give her a hug from me. You have saved her life, nursed her back to health and she is awesome.

    Thanks all! She’s my sweetheart! I’m terrified to have her tested...not sure I can handle it if something comes back positive!

    Figured y’all would appreciate a Blossom update. (Or Not Willow as DH still calls her!)

    She’s just hanging out in quarantine getting fat! Proof that was grabbed as I was walking by her stall last week.

    Vet was out today to check out some cows so I had them do her blood work. Should have the results on her CAE, CL, Johne’s, and Brucellosis. Vet recommended the latter because we would be consuming her milk if the others are fine and with her somewhat sketchy history, he would feel better about playing it safe. We agreed.

    Thank you! I’m really hoping everything is fine so we can integrate her into the herd. Having to give her up would be horrible. The only consolation is that I have a pet home lined up where she’d be a horse companion. I just want to keep her though!
