Geez I haven't updated you guys in a while, these past few months have been totally crazy, but now I'm on bed rest for the rest of the night (I passed out because I drank a Monster energy drink and I'm really weak now so I can't do anything)
Alrightey, shall we start off on all you've missed?
1: Before I left for vacation, I went out and spent time with Annie. While I was out there, she layed down so I just layed there with her...Then I was stupid and sat on her. Thankfully she didn't care, but I know I shouldn't have done it (you really can't trust me alone with horses)
2: We went on vacation, and when we came back Annie was limping so bad she could hardly walk....I was panicking...A lot. Turns out she had a HUGE abscess. Don't worry, we are treating it though, we have bute and we are wrapping it with this stuff my boss told me to use for it (Annie got hurt on the fourth and we could only get a hold of my boss) and it popped that day...Thankfully! It was HUGE! I had a tiny one and it hurt like crazy, I can only imagine how she felt!...Anyways, guess who gets to start cleaning it out with an old toothbrush soon?...Yup. She'll love that... Annie has already started putting weight on it, and when she saw she could walk the first thing she did was start cantering around her field. She loooveesss to run!
3: We switched Annie over from Alfalfa to Orchard hay...Turns out I'm highley allergic to orchard hay...Guess I can't feed her anymore till all 3 huge bales are gone :/
Annie has taken bute surprisingly well! She really didn't like the vanilla icing flavor, but she loooved the applesauce! Which is surprising because my boss said it's usually the other way around....All well, every horse is different!....And Annie is definitely special (: I'm going to upload some pictures of her soon, but it will probably be in a new forum post with her and Brandy
