    Scary is when you mistakenly douche with Draino. One of my clients with AIDS told me that years ago and I have been waiting to use it. He had lots of words of wisdom to impart on the rest of us.
    Even though he died years ago he will be one of the people I have met in my life I will always remember.
    I am laughing about some the other things he said as I type.
    His strength and dignity as he wasted away inspire me. Nothing I am going through now is comparable to what he suffered.
    Thanks Kayella. Shalom

    If there is no swelling or heat then I am inclined to think there is nothing serious. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.
    Don't worry yourself to death . If she is eating , running , playing then she is not in too much pain.

    She's been limping pretty bad though, this is the 4th day.

    My girl was backed for the first time by the trainer and did fabulously for her float. Proud momma :) now I just need to back her.

    Nuisance if it were a weakness she was born with it should have surfaced by now with all the playing colts her age do.
    Let me know what the vet says I am very interested. Shalom

    Omg Dba, thank you for that laugh! It sounds like he was a very strong, resilient man. Your inspiration is admirable. Keep kicking butt!

    Thanks DBA! I have to remember that one!
    For those not on FB, like DBA isn't most of the time. Kit had a big ole mesquite thorn deep in her frog. Vet had to trim down her frog quite a bit to find it, was in about an inch. Got the whole thing out. He gave her some sedation. We've turned her into a junkie I think! Lol He dug a little deeper so if there was any infection it will drain. Put some betadine in it, then wrapped it up good, gauze, vet wrap, sticky ace wrap looking stuff... I know it has a name, but my CRS is acting up. Then duct tape! Suppose to rain tonight, he said keep it dry . May have to put a bag over her leg and vet wrap it closed to keep it up. She got a tetanus shot. Go back in a week for him to check it again.

    He said she's "big boned" I think he called her fat! Lol He said to cut down on her feed, because of her big bones and growth plates, she doesn't need to grow too fast!

    That's awesome nu, glad she's bandaged up and on the mend! Those mesquite thorns like to hide, especially in the frog. Their nasty things......
