Shearing & allergies

Thanks to Baobh and Bathalamus, we had a completely uneventful shearing day. Lerris was a freak, of course, but he was dealt with in competent ways. The worse injury to humans was a slightly smashed hand, and the worst injury to the goats was a slight nick on Loki's tummy.

After a horrible night of antsy dreams and a crummy time this morning, I found out that it might even be worth it. The allegra worked. I had a slightly sniffly nose (which could have been the weather) for the entire shearing. So yes, it's worth the daily nausea to not explode into allergies in the middle of the goat herd. No, I'm not sure I'll be doing allergra at the full strength all of the time... I'll have to check with the ENT.
