The cellulitis was actually a big worry of mine after CLaPorte's thread awhile ago. We couldn't find any new cuts or anything though. Cold hosing took the heat out of it but her leg was still very swollen and by the time she was back in a stall, she wanted to put zero weight on it at all.
I really didn't expect her to be in that bad of shape when I got there.
And she's not re-wrapping it until the morning, and then the farrier will help me out again in the afternoon when I go back down. He said that we'll have to see where to go from there, since it was hard to get a good idea of what happened because of how swollen it was.
