I know, but I am trying to do the best with what I have. I know my dad probably won't be too pleased if we bring a vet out, but my mom will force him into it if necessary.

Would you recommend that I tell my instructor to keep her in tomorrow? I'm leaning towards it, even though I know she won't be too pleased that I'm not taking her advice. She got mad earlier when I brought the farrier out instead of just coming to get her.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

She seriously got angry that you called the farrier? Your instructor isn't a vet...neither is the farrier, but he's closer to it than the instructor. Reno and I are sending good reiki for a quick recovery.

Yep, she came up to me while I was cleaning Indie's stall and said, "I don't mean to sound bitchy, but why did you call the farrier when I was right here?".. I just said because she was busy and brushed it off. But to be honest, I felt like Indie was in better hands with him. He used to work a lot at a harness racing barn so he's familiar with wrapping/sweating/etc.. plus he's a great farrier and Indie seems to like him.

And thank you, I'm hoping to see improvement by tomorrow although I still want to get the vet out. I doubt I'll be able to focus too much on school work without wondering how she's doing.

Oh dear, im so sorry to hear that
Please make sure that, if the swelling is not considerably down tomorrow morning and she is still in obvious pain(flared nostrils), that a vet is called. Hope it's not what I think it is.....

What do you think it is?

And her nostrils weren't flared after I cold hosed her, but it really broke my heart to see it. I cried all the way up to the gate with her.. and cried on the way home. I know horses often have accidents, but why her? And why only two months after I finally brought her home?

I'm telling my instructor to keep her in tomorrow, she can yell at me all she wants.. but it'll be better for her to have the easy access to hay and not have to walk around grazing.

She's your horse, and you're looking out for her best interest. Let the woman yell. You don't want your baby to injure herself further, especially not knowing exactly what is wrong.

Exactly, I'm going to text her and tell her to leave her in tomorrow. If she wants to send me a big message and be mad at me, then so be it. To be honest, I feel like I can trust the opinions I receive here more than hers. I value so many of the members here and their opinion. I just hope Indie will be alright. :(

She should NOT be going outside, the way the weather has been here it would be an accident waiting to happen.

Cold hose, wrap and bute. It really sucks that you don't have the best access to vets in that area Just do NOT have Dr Arnott touch her. I am praying he is retired. But if hes not don't call him.

I wish you could get Dr Murch there

Sending healing vibes Indies way!

I sent her a message, so Indie will definitely be staying inside tomorrow. It'll give me a bit of relief and it's what is best for Indie. (aside from seeing a vet)

As for what vet, my dad would probably bring down Dr. Debertin. He's a family friend (his daughter and my sister are best friends) so we can definitely trust him. If not him, he could probably point us in the right direction. I'll definitely remember about not letting a Dr. Arnott go near her.

I really do wish that we had more equine-specialized vets around here though. :(

if the cold hosing had a positive effect it's most likely not cellulitis/lymphangitis. She could have slipped, could have been kicked....who knows. Let's see what it looks like tomorrow morning. Can you call Laura tonight to find out what she saw after re-wrapping?
