OMGosh Nu! So glad to hear you found your culprit before it turned into a major infection. Poor thing. I can't imagine what that must have felt like. Good job getting the vet out.
DBA, hate to hear you had even more to deal with than you already do. Get well prayers headed your way. Your sense of humor cracks me up and will also keep you going. Laughter is one's best medicine.
I got a good little trail ride in today before the kids got off the bus. My neighbor, who had never ridden before they moved here about a year ago, has really taken a liking to the horses and loves to go riding. I put her on our new one, Jay, today and we took him and my barrel mare on about a 2 hour ride down roads and through local subdivisions littered with dogs, trash cans, mail boxes, cars, culverts, sprinklers, survey tape on t posts, oh, and miniature horses! It was Jay's first time out since we bought him. He did great!!!! So did my mare who's always looking for boogers. She thinks the entire world is out to get her. Well, we did great until..........those EVIL mini's!!! I don't even think these two little mini's made the 34in. mark and we survived everything that should have freaked them out, but the mini's flipped them. Cause, you know, 34in. mini's eat 1200lb barrel horses. Jay jumped a little, but Moon tucked tail and did a 180. So, I made her face her fears and introduced her to them. Crazy mare. She did better on the way home. LOL! This horse stands in front of a running 50hp tractor with balers, brush hogs, and augers attached and you have to practically push her out of the way, but a mini flips her. Go figure.
