Well, lets see. Chilly came home from the trainers. And Rumor is in LOVE. She appears much much happier, less depressed and has a pasture mate! I was nervous putting Chilly in with her, but I unclipped her lead, and she just started grazing while Rumor checked her out. No kicking, no biting, no pinning ears, no squealing...Nothing. I can always count on Chilly to be a good girl.
Chilly trotted around the pasture and Rumor actually trotted after her! It was very lame and very uncoordinated, but still. She has not done it since though.
Rumor has not been stalled in 3 days now. She's out morning and night. She has started limping again, and not bearing as much weight as she previously has been. So, we are getting the vet out Monday or Tuesday to come look at her. The swelling is still in the hock. I'm hoping we can lance it or something to make it go away.
Swelling has not increased...it's decreased above and below the hock, but I feel like we are at a standstill, if not, going backwards since she's using the leg less/seems to be bothered by it more.
Her temperature is 100.8, reduced swelling, and she's in good spirits otherwise. So it was definitely an infection. But we need to change something or do something different. It's been 2 full weeks since this started. Seems like a lifetime, but I was hoping she'd be progressing even better now.
New pictures. Her bites are all healing well. But they are nasty looking with all the hair missing. Poor thing.
