Wrecker is doing very good. I picked her up today. Surgery was performed the day I dropped her off, last thursday. She has been on stall rest since then. And is supposed to be on stall rest for 14 more days. Yikes. She can have her stitches out in 14 days as well.

Incision is supposed to stay dry, clean as can be, and the obvious daily check for signs of infection. No antibiotics need to be given. She got a tetanus shot as well because of the surgery.

Hand walking for 10 minutes twice a day.

You can tell she is a little sore as she is walking a little slower then normal. But she still is sweet as can be. She walked right up to me in the stall when I got there. On the way to the trailer she tried kicking up her heels a little bit and trotted forward, the lady leading her was doing a crappy job holding her and I ended up holding onto her halter too.

She was so incredibly good coming home. She launched herself in the trailer. LoL. Unloaded well and is happy to be home. Chilly is very chatty when we go out to the barn. I've missed that. My other horses don't talk very much except during graining. Chilly wickers at you every time she sees you.

She seems bigger to me. I'm going to get some new picture of her tomorrow. Baby hair is *almost* gone.

sorry for the crappy photos...they were taken on my phone, and in a dusty muggy barn. But, what a butt!!!!!!!!!! She's not really downhill like that, she's standing in a hole.

miss wrecker got to go to the horse show today.......without mom!!! She was absolutely phenomenal! She was ponied around by uncle nutmeg for a little while for the first time. She did very well.

I made a last minute decision to bring her. I took her to the trailer to see what she would be like away from mom. Neither one seemed to care and she jumped up in the trailer before I could even register what she did. That settled my wariness in bringing her quickly!

She was a wonderful, wonderful, amazing little girl. Stood tied to the trailer 80 percent of the time. I was so happy with her. About 10 little kids came to our trailer multiple times over the evening to visit her. And she loved every minute of it. Another time I caught someone behind the trailer photographing her. Lol. He came up to me and said she was amazingly well behaved and was so beautiful he just had to come meet her. He was incredibly impressed.

And then uncle nut and uncle jasper took turns babysitting her at the trailer while the other one had to compete.
