This morning when we went down to feed he was lame. Seriously lame. Can't move a step and leg shaking when he tried lame. Hoof hot. I soaked his hoof and gave him some bute and turned him back out. He needs to move on the hoof so the abscess will finish working its way out. I suspect that the exercise yesterday got the blood flowing in his foot and the abscess started moving again. Fortunately, I had talked to my vet a few days ago and she cautioned me that this might happen, that it might not be over, that it might come and go before finally breaking.
Brett and I decided to go down the mountain and pick up supplies for projects. We spent the afternoon busy with our chosen projects.
|I played in the greenhouse sowing more seeds.|
|Tried out my new red chair.|
|Brett worked on his project - building stairs up the hillside to the viewing stand path.|
|We have a washer/dryer in the tack room. When we built our ranch, we built the barn first and lived there (and slept in our travel trailer) while the house was being built.|
|I got the feed room shelves organized.|
Sedona and Kersey were out and about. Mostly laying about...
The end of the day is best. Brett finished the stairs and we sat on the viewing stand with a glass of wine.
|I soaked Jackson's hoof and put on a poultice wrap.|
