It's too cold and windy to bathe him. I'm quite certain he has an abscess in that left hind. He's hopping lame on it and the hoof feels warm. He wasn't thrilled with keeping his foot in the warm epsom salt water. After a short soak, I wrapped his foot up in epsom salt poultice, a baby diaper and Duck tape. One day of rain and here we are... again.
And, of course, rain is forecast everyday for the next week.
Maybe I'll ride again in July. In the meantime, I'm decorating the tree, baking Christmas cookies and wrapping gifts. ...and watching my hips expand.
