    Hey after moving I had the flat screen TV my daughters bought me taken out of the box after nearly 2 years.
    Of course I had someone else hook up the dvd and all that technical stuff.
    Now I have the ability to record up to 4 shows at a time. I don't think I watch that much tv in a week unless it is news or a documentary. Shalom

    You mean no more foil on the bunny ears! WOW! Welcome to the 21st century! Lol

    That said, I wouldn't know how to use one of those phones either. I make phone calls, just started texting. And take a few pictures! Just recently figured out how to text pics to facebook, even though I don't have internet on my phone.

    Called the vet .. spoke to his wife (who is also his tech for the last 20 years and the office manager).

    She's doubtful the mare has a UTI .. could just be "transitional heat" .. happens this time of year. ??

    He's going to be out this way on Tuesday .. I told her I would watch her between now and then and call if I thought he needed to come out sooner..


    Dba .. do you have experience with this?

    I've seen mare come in heat, not on their typical cycle, when moved and near other horses. I don't know about the scald on the legs though, that sounds more like infection. I don't know, I doctor people not horses! Lol

    My gut tells me it's more than heat .. I'm not one to LOOK for things.. but I KNOW my animals..

    OOhhh, I'll definitely need some good vet references for when we move! I have 2 German shepherds, a cat (my daughters), mini pig, and the horses. So needless to say I will definitely be needing one.

    Texasgal how often is she urinating?
    I have seen some strong transitional heats but nothing like you are describing.
    Does she have a temperature and is she dehydrated?
    What colour is the urine? Shalom

    I haven't seen her urinate.. only the results of it all over her legs. I'm only out there long enough to feed, brush a little, check the water trough level, etc.

    She doesn't appear to be feverish .. but I've not temped her.

    She is NOT dehydrated, and looks great!

    I cleaned all the dried yellow ick from around her hoo haa in case it was just pollen sticking to the discharge. Now that we're past the bad pollen, if she's got yellow looking dried crud today, I'll know it's not pollen sticking to her wet hoo haa.. lol

    Should I be seeing her urethra peaking out of her hoo haa?

    She's 17.
