Well Darkie is getting a second chance, but it's going to be a really long road ahead for her, since the vet opted to do her feet one at a time to ease the stress. I think she's starting to stock up in her back legs, due to the fact she's leaning on them more since her LF has been resected.
As usual I have to help my SIL with her mare because she doesn't know any veterinary jargon, and basic first aid and care for after treatment. SOOO i'm very busy with her and my mare whom has a weird skin issue, that has the vet stumped (for now)
So hopefully in another week she'll be able to be out and roaming with the herd again.
I've been putting liserine on it to help clear it up faster, if it really helps we'll see....
I've also been putting A&D ointment on it to help loosen the scabs and they come off easier, and it helped her hair grow back.
The vet told me I have to get her a fly mask that has the uv protection in it to help protect her since she has pink skin around her eyes, she's more prone to sunburn and skin cancer. Otherwise she has adjusted well to staying in the barn (less bugs!!!). It's still an ongoing fight with the rest of the in-laws, since they still assume I know nothing, but who do they run to to help take care of the horses???? HHHMMM ME!!!!
Yeah, but I know nothing right. I've also been hashing it out with my FIL, he magically thinks he's going to 'tame' Snowy the wild 2yo filly. Yeah, he knows nothing, it's been proven over and over again...
. I just laugh any more, if they only knew half of what I do, they wouldn't need my help and I could go on with my life much easier..... I'm expanding the shed below my house so that my horses can go into it this winter, I will have my horses officially separated from theirs, and I will be sooo much less stressed!!!! Hubby finally agreed to give up the shed to me LOL. I win!!!
Also my stupid FIL thinks he's going to breed his mare again, for what I don't have the slightest clue, because i'm not imprinting training another foal, and i'm not going through this process again, plus she isn't current on anything, she hasn't had her shots since she's been here, its a wonder her first foal survived. So no stud breeder will take a mare who isn't current on everything, I know this as a fact. I love how they try to argue with me, he'll never get it done, so I have nothing to worry about really. He's just like his dad, says all kinds of ****, but never goes through or finishes anything.
I swear i'm surrounded by idiots!!!
VICTORY FOR ME!!!!!! THE VET CONFIRMED I WAS RIGHT!!!!! WHOOOO HOOOOOO!!!! Remember how my in-laws swore up and down that the mares were all bred again, well guess what!!! NONE OF THEM ARE!!!!!!!!!!
Stormy wasn't mature enough for one, and he's still to young and incompetent!!!! WHOOO HOOO!!!! I love being right!!!!
You should have seen my real happy dance, you would have
I was sooo **** happy it was hilarious!!!! Talk about a total slap in the face with reality, and that I do know my stuff when it comes to horses!!!! HA!!! Yeah, I know i'm getting a little conceited here, buy hey, I was right!!
So there ya go, my latest update on everything going on at the moment!! I'll keep ya posted......
