How's Skip this week, Dream? His throat all healed up now? And his belly? Fur coming back in? I'm hoping the vet past him once more?

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.

It's going to be nice to see Skip out with the herd again. Going to be great to hear you're riding once more too! Hope the foot isn't bothering you too much. I'm still around if you've ever any big jobs. Put me to work!

I appreciate your offer of help, but you're about 3 hrs away from me and that's just too much of an imposition. You're welcome to come visit and do whatever we're doing at the time, but I certainly won't be asking you to come out and work.

Once I get Skippy built back up, I'll give you a holler and you can come take some pics if you want. He'll love showing off and all the attention and I'll appreciate the updated pics.

OOOOH OOOOOFFFFF! Typhoid Dolly has officially become THE most expensive horse I've ever owned......by along shot. This little adventure in contagious disease has now reached the $12,000.00 mark and we're not finished yet, and this is at OSU which has the most reasonable vet prices I've ever seen. Pepi has some rough sounding lungs and her white count is high, so we're waiting for the culture results to come back to see if she maybe has some pneumonia (not strangles) or shedding strep still which might indicate internal strangles. My wallet is beyond in pain.

Dang! Reading these numbers I'm starting to think my price list of owning a horse is not all that far off. Geesh! Thoughts and prayers for Pepi tonight. And for you and your sanity.
