This week, Wednesday, yesterday, was a busy day.
I was up, fed my hubby and the horses( he feeds the dogs as soon as he gets up. Hubby is the early riser), and then began working on my craft project. I work on it first thing in the morning because it is in the garage and that's when the garage is the coolest. I can't tell you what it is in case the people it is being gifted to, read this blog. ;) but it involves saws, sawdust, frame clamps.
The vet arrived. She checked out Apollo, said he was founder which shocked us. He looked in good shape from when he came to us. She showed us the little fat pads on his rump and how a pony carries the sign in his neck up higher. His ribs still show a bit and he doesn't have any fat anywhere else. She said he has a higher metabolism and we'll have to keep him on bluegrass straw and supplements. Great! And he had thrush and she said his main reason for the lameness was the bad trim job. She was going to call a farrier she works with to come fix his poor feet. As for Mikey he had a high temp, meaning he has an infection. She saw the entry and exit wounds, flushed the wound out with betadine, and gave put him on an antibiotic. She could find anything in the wound. We think he may have received the puncture when he was racing across the field, tripped on a pivot track and hubby said he tumbled for twenty feet, he'd been running so fast. And he likes to lay down in the water in the pivot tracks which is nasty and why he gets a lot of baths. He could have had the open wound and laid int he nasty water and got the infection. Hopefully, by next week when I post he'll be back to his old self.
After a shower and while hubby watched a show I don't care for, I went online to look for photos for book covers.
And that is a day in the life of me.
