Winter – a challenge

2014, Dec, 28 | MANUEL - SA & more | 0 comments

Manuel has a very thick coat – belly down

From his neck to tail the SA has resulted in  many spots without any under-coat.

Thererfore I had to find a solution that could work when we it is cold outside. He loves being outside in the cold, but the SA-spots are exposed and dry which makes me worry about frost damage there.

Friends of mine are skilled in spinning yarn from akita-wool and I will probably let them help me with spinning yarn so I can knit a “back-cover”. I have collected wool through out the years and have several paper sacks filled with white, beige and peach coloured wool.

But today I had to solve it in another way, I covered the bald SA-spots in a thick hand lotion and it works fine.
