Whoops, I just realized that I haven't given you guys an update about Kenzie's trip!
She did pretty well all things considered and I have no complains. It took us about ten minutes to get her loaded (she thought that the divider was going to eat her) but she travelled well and munched on some hay on the way there. I heard her shifting around a little near the end but not too much. No injuries or anything, and she unloaded like a champ. Ginger was actually worse than she was, I think! That farm has tons of arabians and I think Gingie recognized that they were 'cousins' (she's a NSH) and started talking up a storm. It was actually pretty funny.
Kenzie was pretty sore but did well for the farrier, and the farrier was kind enough to give her a break between doing hooves, and she readily explained her plan of action to me. Turns out that she's still a little thrushy in that abcessed hoof and its just over all very unhealthy, but the other feet are in better shape. Her bars were completely screwed up, her frogs are narrow and unhealthy, and her walls are thin- but the farrier thinks we can eventually get her in shape. The frog is now taking some pressure and has been professionally cleaned up so she thinks that it will start looking healthier soon. It doesn't help that she's sloughing some of it off right now as well, so she's just a reck. Her feet do look a lot better though and I'm happy with her progress. She was walking much more freely even a few minutes after being trimmed and doesn't look like she's grimacing when she stretches her legs out and takes pressure on them, so that is very promising!
I'm hoping that soon we'll be able to see little Kenzie cantering and playing like the baby she is soon. So far I've only seen her trot and I know its because of those darned feet!
Oh, and wish me luck tomorrow morning guys! I'm taking my SAT for the very first time tomorrow *bitesnails*
