As Thornton had shown no signs of eating overnight I decided that he needed to see the Veterinary. We are very busy and really did not have the time to wait around the Farm Yard for the Veterinary to arrive so the best option was to drive Thornton to the Veterinary Practice in Minehead that is over twenty miles away.

As my vehicle had a Horse Trailer attached I had no option but to take one of my Lads cars. He wasn’t best pleased when he was told that Thornton was to be a back seat passenger. Like most Lads he was running the car on air so my first stop was a petrol station on the way to the Veterinary. The Garage is only small but we still managed to get a few comments about a Sheep in the back of the car. People must have thought that I was not all the ticket.

Thornton was examined at the Veterinaries, the only positive comment being that he was in very good condition. He was treated for possibilities rather than a positive diagnosis, receiving a jab of antibiotics, a jab of a pick you up and a dose of liquid paraffin that I insisted on, just in case he had a blockage in his gut. It has alway been our concern at what Thornton may eat. Most Sheep in the world graze on grass in a field, with the odd corn feed. Thornton feed on any thing that he see that he fancies. We constantly are taking wire, paper, string and lots of other bits that he nibbles at.

The Journey back home from the Veterinary was a nightmare. Thornton would not keep still. On the way to the Veterinary he was the ideal passenger, the complete opposite on the way back. I had to stop the car three times as he somehow managed to finish up on the floor stuck between to front and rear seats.

Thornton has been in the Farm House all day. He is having a little nibble at his feed and paper that he managed to pull down, and laying down half a sleep. This evening although he still not eating he is very much alert and getting into mischief pulling a tea towel and any thing else he can get to off of the work top. Hopefully he will start to eat soon.
