Henry

We have had to get the vet out today to look at Henry.
He hasn't looked too good over the last week so we thought he had better to be checked over.
Prognosis isn't brilliant....his lungs are old & not working too well, all down to his age of course.
He is now twelve years old & we aren't too sure how long sheep live left to their own devises.
The vet gave him two injections so we will watch closely how he does over the next few weeks.

We love Henry so we are hoping he bucks up!

Three good things :
1. Warm enough to have the back door open.
2. Lots of B&B in this weekend.
3. Jack has bought me a card reader so that I can download my photos from camera to iPad....it's brilliant!
Good luck for Henry, great shot by the way

Poor old boy! Fingers crossed, sometimes those injections give them a new lease of life.

What a lovely pet, poor old man. Hope he does recover, he's obviously very well looked after and loved.

Well I'm faving as a get well for poor old Henry and also because it's a great photo. A card reader? That's what I need!

He looks like he needs a fuss. Lovely shot of him, he has a nice face, hope he perks up

Poor Henry, I think a sheep can live 10-12 years on average so he is an old boy. Bless him, he looks happy enough lying in the lush grass. Hope the injections do the trick. I hate it when an animal is poorly, it is such a worry. I am giving Henry a fav, he is lovely

@judithg from Amazon Judith about £12 called 5 in 1 card reader for iPad Air 4 & mini pad....Kiwibird...rather appropriately named we thought! Henry appreciates the fave!

Hope he perks up - love that his name is Henry! ;) I would love a sheep but not sure the city (or neighbours would allow it). I need one of those card readers. Each time I'm at the cottage I always want to see the pics on a bigger screen but have to wait until I'm at home. Will look into it.

Poor old Henry, he's become quite a 365 star!

Aww me and Poppy are sending Henry our best wishes.

Awww poor Henry! fingers crossed that he picks up. He looks lovely :)

I learnt that sheep normally live to 10 - 12 years except for some breeds like a Merino. I hope Henry has a successor? Lovely scene with those roofs in the background!

@maggiemae oh that's interesting......poor Henry is a very old man then.

Poor Henry, but he's doing well to get to twelve. My farmer brother-in-law says that a sheep's main aim in life is to die.

@dh we always said that too Delena...turkey's are the same!

Wonderful portrait of Henry. I'll keep him in my prayers and sending Corgi Healing Vibes - they are notoriously strong.

Age gets us all eventually. Hope Henry bucks up
