No abcess from what they say. This is the right front. Last time it was the left front. The wire thing just happened today. Dad pulled it out. I'll keep you updated and hope things get better soon :o( not having a good time
So today my brother texts me telling me her leg has swollen and they've started her on penicillin. Apparently the wire went through her white line and he is concerned that it may have hit a bone. My parent's aren't home for a few days so it is just my brother, who works 12 hour days on the farm, looking after her. I've advised on what to do and he states that he knows as he did do the vetenary degree but he hasn't got time or resources to do much other than give her antibiotics. A friend is coming over to help but honestly I have no idea what is going on. No one is telling me much. I don't even know how long she was lame for because no one bloody told me
So I'm trrying to get money to go home. I'm this close to kicking everything in down here and going. I've got no anual leave and I'm half way through the paper already so my head is ready to blow. I spent 3 hours bawling my eyes out trying to get what was going on out of my family. I understand they are busy but this is just stupid
I haven't had any contact since 2pm now so I'm just lost
Eqqy,she will be fine - horses legs swell at the drop of a hat. Sounds like your brother is on to it - if you've ever had a horse with a hoof abcess you'd know that it can appear as if they have a broken leg one minute and then once it bursts, they are galloping around as nothing ever happened....so deep breaths, keep calm, she will be fine - this is not worth chucking in your job for Honestly, she will be fine
They can't get the antibiotics into her aparently. Dad is home tomorrow and he will try then assess if we need to get the vet out. I'm pulling my hair out down here.
On the plus side, I'm working in the mental health unit so I'm in good hands lol
Well they haven't committed me yet but watching TV with my clients and I see the add for the Country Calander on Horseback DVD and the waterworks start
So I've got a friend going around there, dad is threatening the twitch which I know doesn't bloody work on Freya. She's a mental horse...as in it's all about what you're thinking and feeling rather than what you're doing...sooo basically, twitch her, she's going to rear and eff about. She was so easy to jab when she put her leg through a fence two years ago because I was no nonsence, calm and quick. Send too fellas out to do it and it all goes to s! >_< no offence to any blokes out there but I'm majorly unimpressed with the males in my family right now.
Almost finished work so will have an update in the morning...hopefully :o(
Thanks for your support and slobbeur hehe
Well Panacea is now 6 months and 3 days old :o)
Back home Freya is now in a nice big three bay barn, hoof banaged after a horsey family friend came up and dug out the pus, on a course of antibiotics and Panacea is free to wonder in and out. I don't know if she is technically weaned as Freya is completely off grass until her course is up. I'm sure they'll manage for a few days :o)
So I'm feeling a bit better but still wish I was there.
Also, can't belive it's been 6 months!
So glad to hear Freya is fine - knew she would be
Zephyr turns 7 months tomorrow!!! Hard to believe it is that long since HE emerged.
It takes a lot more than that to wean a foal! I know of horses who get back with their mothers a year later and still try to drink!!! I think Zephyr will be one of those...(A hairy little Italian Mummy's boy)
Well mum says they are in together so I don't know how that works, maybe Pan is out during the day back in the barn at night. So at least things are moving along :o) Wish time would slow down but then I wish the time would speed up so I could go home :oP
