Oh the poor thing. Glad the vet was able to ID it and the Penicillin is working. Fingers crossed for you.

bacteria that he picked up from an unknown source. After three months, we are finally nearing the end.

In Florida they wash horses legs with antibacterol soap because of fungus in the sand

My poor horse is getting tired of being poked in the butt by a needle twice a day...I feel so bad for him but it is helping. I about had a heart attack when I headed out to the barn this morning and saw him laying down flat (he almost never lays down for a nap) and I was like, "please don't be dead." Even though we are very careful with the penicillin. Still...kinda scary.

So today I unwrapped Mozart's leg and saw a big hole in the large circle of dead flesh on his leg. It looks like his tendon is showing through the hole. I called the vet and she will be out as soon as she can to tell me if it is his tendon underneath or if its something else (which I can't think of what else it might be) I am hoping its not his tendon, I really want him to be better soon. He's such a nice horse, a true gentleman and I miss riding him and jumping him. If he is going to be lame for the rest of his life, I will be very upset. However, despite the hole, he is still sound, and has been for the most part. Every once and a while he will have a bad day where he limps a little at the walk but he's been sound now for four days in a row (which is a new record for us in the month of Oct) When this mess all started he wasn't lame at all and I actually showed him, just with vet wrap on the wound and a vet note saying it was okay. I am hoping for the best and I pray every night that he will make it through this and still be my amazing show horse in the end, even if it takes longer, I just want him to be okay in the end. *sigh*

Anyway, I just needed to rant a little. Please, if you believe in any kind of higher power, pray for us.
