Delicia wasnt enjoying the field today - we have had a touch of rain and it being clay soil...its a little bit damp
But she was as good as gold to lead in/out and have her legs all washed off and treated to prevent mud fever. Today I have increased delicia's balancer to 1kg split over two feeds (3 cup fulls in total) and half a scoop of chaff as winter is coming and the goodness of the grass is starting to wane.
Overall I think her condition is good. She's in no work so field fit, im used to seeing her all muscled up and clipped this time of year so having a yeti for a horse is a bit of a novely!
We are now 179 days in foal poor dee got spooked by a firework last week and managed to kick herself resulting in a swollen fetlock :( Vets has been and not oevrly concerned so ice boots and rest is the order of the day at the moment.
Dee isnt overly happy with being on box rest but with carrots a plenty and ad lib hay she soon shuts up :)
And yet, that stuff was neatly hung up!
Cankle alert :(
But we had our walks and grazing in hand
So it isnt such a hard life!
Good old ice boots - amazing product :)
After one days treatment
Apprently me sitting on a block outside her stable whilst she wears the boot is highly amusing!
But lets not forget the most important pic of all....baby bump!
