Hi Bonkey - strange, Iwas thinking it is a long time since we heard about how your boys and other assorted creatures were getting on - glad you are OK and hope you had a vhb..... Like you * Fortifed* seems like a long and distant memory to be mid 20's , <looks in mirror. Sobs. Goes back to butchering the front garden to make lawn for guineas>
You need a supportive insole fortified sort of built up in the arch of your foot. and slightly raised on the heel (Inner side) to stop your foot rolling in. (Usually PF is a strain type injury. But some people have an enthesiopathy- which is where the tendons/ligaments attatched to the sole of the heel become damaged ) Topical gel ( over the counter Ibuleve/Movelat even Arnica gel can help)
If it's really bad, your GP can refer you for a steroid injection.
It can disappear as spontaneously as it crops up. But it's painful when you have it.
I sometimes stick a D shaped felt pad in the arch of my foot if I have it.Temporary but it helps.
LittlePig has been a angel lately - tis nail clipping night tonight though so I doubt that will last!
I have a question! BigPig has become rather energetic of late and is enjoying a zoom around his cage a couple of times a day I find it rather amusing to watch his podgy arse wobble round at top speed - is he happy or has he gone insane?
The energy spurt is probably animal + springtime (It's been late this year) I put the boys out in their run last couple of weeks (only for a couple of hours ). GP1 has been doing his Popcorning and leaping about.
Their new trick is : both of them go into the hay tunnel (about 18" long) and face each other off. Neither moves. They can't both fit in to pass each other by. It goes on for aaaaaaagges.
Hi all glad to hear spring is in the air ! I'm sure the guineas feel like we do about spring, glad to be outside and strutting our stuff......sounds like your boys are growing up and settling now*bonkey*, we will need video evidence of the midnight singer, bless! No guineas for me yet, but just put notice up in local shop re small pet sitting, still brutally attacking front garden to see if a lawn could be put in, suitable for small furries. It is full of spikey plants and hideously painful thorny things. I could weep when I think of all the bee and guinea friendly plants we left up north... Lemon balm. My girls loved hiding in it, pretending they were in an episode of I'm a celebrity..... They smelled divine when they were finally caught!
