Wrecker update...copied and pasted from her growing up baby thread...
Yesterday I was doing her daily check with her hernia. And, it was hard and I was unable to push it back up. So, I called the vet this morning and he offered to let me bring her in today and he'll do surgery either tonight or tomorrow. It will probably be tomorrow, tonight would have been a more emergency situation which at this point, its not. She is acting fine, pooping and eating, so all is good.
But I went ahead and got her and momma ready and hauled them 40 minutes to the vet! They both got a bath, and oh my goodness was she ever fantastic. She stood still to be sprayed by the hose and she loved the shampooing.
She hopped right in the trailer. Unloaded very well. And walked into the vet's barn without so much as a missed step! Chilly was blowing and snorting at shadows (must be the blonde), but Wrecker was bold and just kept going. The girls at the vet love her. Not sure if ill be getting my filly back. Hahaha.
I'll keep everyone posted on how she's doing. Monday should be the day she comes home...if they'll let me have her back! Posted via Mobile Device
I dislike leaving halters on if you're not leading the horse some where, For that reason. My friend used to keep her horse at a barn that only had straight stalls. Her horse was constantly wearing a halter and tied to a wall. So she did eventually get an ugly indent. There was another old horse there who wasnt so lucky. He had no hair on his nose at all anymore.
