I was going to do an update yesterday but it got so hot, so fast, I just lost all my "git up and go". Vet came out on Weds and cultured all 6 in the barn, the ones who actually had strangles. I'll get those results either this afternoon or Monday, depending on if anything looks like it wants to grow or not.
Skippy has had 2 clean cultures, Weds was his 3rd and last, if it comes back clean. Yep, fur is growing back in, trach is totally healed up, left an amazingly small scar. He's gaining weight, ribs are starting to cover over. As soon as he's fleshed out again, we'll start riding and building up those big, gorgeous muscles again.
Dolly (Typhoid Dolly who started it all) had her 3rd on Weds too, the other 2 have been clean.
Cloney got cultured and he & Patti got teeth floated. Patti had some impressive hooks but all is smooth now.
Goldie & Dunny got cultured and otherwise are totally fine.
Pepi has discovered her appetite, turns out she's just finicky. She has decided she loves Nutrena Empower Balance so, that's what she shall get. She was also cultured, but we drew blood and are doing labs to make sure there's no underlying condition(s) that could account for why she's been so thin, other than just being a picky eater.
So, once I get the news that all are clear, QT will be lifted and life can resume its normal ebb and flow once again.
