Sigh. It's just one thing after another.
We took April away from the others so her "baby" (aka the unhandled eleven year old, for those that are familiar with the story) could be completely weaned.
I rode her and then put her in the trailer. We took her down to a friend's, turned her out in the pen, and left to get her hay. We come back and she's not coming to us when we whistle and we can't see her.
Low and behold, we go to check on her and she had slid down her side on a little hill, right into some barb wire, had it wrapped around her left hind and under her shoe, scratched to hell too. Poor girl, I don't even know how the wire GOT there. We had all walked the pasture with no sight of any hazards before...
Well, here's the damage at least.
She also has less sever nicks on her left front leg and shoulder, as well as some pretty bad slices on her other hind leg that bled a lot but weren't that deep. We have her all wrapped up where we can with all the wound care we can...She was SO miserable when we left. We moved her to a smaller pen and got rid of the barbed wire. Poor old gal.
