Thornton has become unwell this afternoon. We had to go out this morning for a short while when he seemed fine, but when we returned home we found him waiting outside the kitchen door calling out. At first we thought that he was waiting to be fed, but going by his droppings outside the door he was unwell. We have tried to give him a feed but he has not taken it, he just wants to go to his bed in the washroom and lie down. We managed to coax him out for a walk down the Valley, hoping that it would help buck him up. It didn’t achieve that, as he went straight back to his bed when he got back to the Farmhouse. We have managed to give him some glucose in warm water. He wouldn’t take it by his bottle so we have had to use a syringe to get him to drink it. I can only think that he has eaten something that has not agreed with him. We have have to see how he is over the next few hours, giving him drinks to make sure that he does not dehydrate.

Gordon the Goose arrived from Jack today. Until Thornton became unwell I had hoped to have tried him out on the Lake. There is a bit of wiring to do to get the wireless connection working. The forecast is for rain tomorrow so I am not sure that I will be able to do it tomorrow.
