Cinny was good this afternoon. Temperature is still holding at 99F. Still in good spirits, especially at Dinner time and was drinking a lot of water/electrolites that the BO gave all the horses because we had a few overheat this afternoon.

I rode the other horse today....who worked my tukus off. He makes me appreciate my wonderful Cinny that much more, especially his sensitivity to aids. Cinny's current stall is off of the arena and I swore he laughed at the other horse the whole time I was working it and had a look of "better you than me, sucker" the whole time :)

Looking forward to tomorrow.... our first bandage change.

Serious foot injury Updated 06/25/2012

I've decided to add SmartCalm back to Cinny's ration today. He is starting to get a bit excitable while on stall rest, poor guy. Other than that, he seems happy and chipper. Temp is still holding at 99F.

Today was the first bandage change. His bandages were a bit bloody when I took them off, but not too bad. The wound itself looked very goopy with opaque whitish yellow goop. I cleaned it up with Betadine and rinsed with clean bottled water and let it dry out a bit before rebandaging. It looks to me like he did pull his stitches, but it's hard to tell. I'm guessing he did. I'm posting today's pictures below so let me know what you think.

I also gave him is last dose of penicillin today myself with the help of my trainer. I did pretty good except I jumped when I put the needle in which made him jump...bad horsie mommy. Luckily he is not a very reactive horse so it was fine after that.

I will be back this afternoon for a lesson and to give Cinny his last dose of bute.

My eyes popped when I saw that. Goodness, good thing you found it quickly. I'm wishing him a VERY speedy recovery.

Tonight's temp 99F and was standing calmly in his stall watching lessons. It would seem that the SmartCalm is helping him to not go nuts while confined.

I think he was laughing at me while I was riding the lesson horse and actually having to WORK to keep it at a trot... he has such a cute sneer!

Oh. My. God. I'm so glad the BO found out about this quickly and got the vet out post-haste. Everyone says that early treatment is the best thing that could happen for injuries, so you have that going for you. Good luck with the rest and rehab!

BTW, I have found Uncle Jimmy's Hangin' Balls to be helpful with stall boredom. They have a sugar-free version, my horse likes it a lot, and it keeps him busy (he's a cribber, so I'm always looking for stuff to put in his stall to distract him in a good way).

Thanks so much. We will be trying stall boredom busters in a day or two. The vet said to give him a few days first because the less he moves the better and some horses actually hop around while playing with their toys. He currently has hay in a slow feeder bag that takes him forever to eat and the smart calm so I think it's good for now. I think after Wednesday or Thursday we can give him a toy or two. I'm also going to start doing a little "clicker" training with him... little tricks like "touch," holding something, or shaking a rattle, that sort of thing. Things that will occupy his brain that he can do standing still.

Bumping, still wondering if anybody else thinks that it appears his stitches have pulled in the most recent photos.

This morning is was a bit anxious. I took him into the arena and let him stand and look at the sunlight and the fields outdoors. Then I took a ton of peppermints and got him doing his stretching exercises as they do not require him moving his feet. Groomed him up a bit and he seemed a lot more relaxed. Temp is still holding... He is now happily munching a nice grass hay snackie in his stall.
