If she is not dehydrated or feverish and eating normally I would go with what the vet says. Watch her closely. Any way you can get him out before the weekend?
I had a couple of mares last year with crsytalized urine on their legs. Is this what you are seeing? Shalom
She is not maiden. It's been 7 years since she foaled.
I just put her with my gelding a couple weeks ago .. he acted all studly with her at first, but I've not seen her be at ALL receptive.
Previous BO told me she was showing heat to her weanling/yearling colt in late december.. We both laughed .. DECEMBER! Now I'm wondering if it was part of this issue.. whatever it is.
Her hair on her legs/hocks are/were just matted and when I went to brush them off, they clumped off and left nothing but skin. She's apparently been doing this a while.
Vet will come out .. for an emergency fee. I ain't payin' it at this point! Lol. She looks good, eats good, drinks good ... makes the ugliest **** faces you have ever seen ... and thought about kicking me when I touched her hoo haa (which she has NEVER EVER thought about before)
I appreciate you letting me air this out to you .....
