Uncle Beau

Gentle Uncle Beau, our old Gentleman, is fading. Each week sees him thinner and more forlorn, and this week our good vet Dr. Jeannie came to check him again. She asked our intentions for him, and we said we will not put him through another winter in the condition he is in. We have increased his feed, because the grazing he does all day long is not bringing him any benefits. It hurts us to see him like this, but we know we are giving him all the Purina Senior he will eat, along with his medicine and sweet feed. He seems to be comfortable, and rambles between yard and pasture, where Mama Llama lets him know who is boss when he tries to steal her feed.
