Thanks! He's doing pretty good!
This morning he had some white snot and then sneezed and it was clear. My friend who was working with him says since he has no other symptoms and is acting his usual self she thinks it's just allergies. Poor boy. They really need to water the arena, that's the main source of dust and the reason for his big goober eyes. We've been treating the surrounding area and his nose with mineral oil dabbed so the dust doesn't stick.
I went to the barn today to check on him. Another boarder called me and said she thought his left back ankle was a bit swollen and he wouldn't let her pick it up. I checked him out and he's a little puffy but not swollen swollen or warm/hot to the touch. He's standing on it, didn't mind me holding it for the most part but wasn't thrilled I was making him three leg eat his dinner while I messed with his foot. I'll keep an eye on it but I'm pretty sure he just stepped on himself doing something silly or maybe bumped it on something.
The hostility at the barn towards me is still heavily present from the lady who began it. I left for two days because it was so uncomfortable to be there. Went back today and felt very uncomfortable as soon as she showed up so I went around to single standing boarders and let them know there was rumors being spread about me from this certain lady and if they hear anything from her to please ask me before taking it seriously. I left shortly after.
