A Lull

We actually have one day with no boarding dogs in so I am going to put the finishing coat on the floor then we are ready for summer. This coat is specialist for kennels and will not be affected by dogs claws and we can pressure hose it with no ill effect. I am determined to keep it all looking as smart as it is now and never smelly.

We have been having real problems with the horses not letting us clean their ears so have resorted to a very simple, sedating method called a twitch.
You have a stick with a loop of sting and take their top lip and in effect restrict the circulation. This releases endorphins in their brain and they are very sleepy which allows you to complete the treatments much more safely and effectively. Once the twitch is removed they are fully alert with no after effects.
