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. Posted via Mobile Device
