huuuuge scare tonight with Snapple
So, my dad came to pick me up to take me to our acreage and as soon as I got in the car he says "you need to go look at Snapple as soon as you get home, she's limping really bad" so of course I was petrefied and I couldn't get my mind off of her the whole drive home.
We got home and I ran down to the paddock. She and Spooky were standing by the hate waiting for their dinner and Snapple was limping a little. I put her halter on and led her around for a few minutes and my dad said she seemed a lot better then last night.
She seems really stiff almost on her entire right side, both her hind and forelegs. She doesn't seem to want to put a lot of weight on them, and she is kind of limping. It isn't too bad and my dad said it was worse last night. Could it be stiffness from the cold? She is old, 26. What canI do to make her better? She doesn't seem in pain, and she almost ran me over trying to get back to the paddock when she saw my dad put the hay out.
Iam going to go down first thing in the morning to see if she is better. I hope she is, I was so scared on the way home.
