Wrecker is 3 months old today. I can't believe how fast time has gone by.
She already knows how to...
-Lead, Including backing and moving her butt over
-Load in the trailer and haul down the road
-Clip and Bathe (Grooming too)
-Picks up front and hind feet
-Stands for farrier and has been filed twice
-Stand still for fly spray
I'm starting the process of separating mom from her for an hour or so. They are put in different stalls and can't see each other. They called back and forth for a little while and then all was quiet.
For reference in the pictures. My mom is 5'3".
And yes, she is a filly. That "thing" is her hernia.
I called and talked to a different vet regarding her hernia. Because of how large it is, and the severity of it...i can fit 4 fingers in it pushing the intestine back up, and it falls right back out...he is recommending surgery. He said not to worry about how young she is, that he works on youngins all the time and its better to do it now as opposed to waiting until she's over a year.
So...as soon as I schedule the appointment...sometime in june...and get the days off work, chilly and wrecker will be making a trip to the vets for surgery. Its a one to two night stay, and around 500 bucks, unless there are complications they run into.
Id like this done and over with as quickly as possible.
The barn addition is starting wednesday. It should be all framed in by this coming weekend. Yay! Posted via Mobile Device
