So...young Mr Red likes to lean over the fence, which by the way has hot wire on it and he doesn't care. A week or so ago he had a swollen knot under his neck, which I DMSO'd and watched. It reduced and I could feel a stick in it. Made a vet appointment, no temp no change in personality or anything so no emergency. Today we went out to work on showmanship stuff for my daughters next show and I palpated it as I do daily, and could feel a little scab, the vet tech in me can't not do it, I'm a scab picker. Well, there it was within my reach, grabbed and yanked and with lots of goo came out this 1 1/2 inch stick.
Silly boy!! He's all cleaned up and munching hay.
Here's the knot:
And heres his "twig"
And one because he's so sweet
And yes I did save it, because all the barn girls were wanting to see what it was.
