Ruby on the other hand decided she was going to try piercing her ears. She managed to get a scratch so deep on her ear, it actually poked all the way through her ear. She was running all crazy like through the woods near dusk, and must have run into a tree branch or bramble that sliced a pretty good chunk out of her ear. She is doing fine, we are holding off on the gold hoops till she gets a little older. She was very patient while we cleaned her ear and applied neosporin, and has been a bit more cautious while running through the woods. Although I expect this to wear off as she forgets what happened the last time.
