I thought I was covering myself from being jinxed by that whole ‘pencil, not pen’ spiel. Welp. Apparently not.
Our favorite yellow pony came out feeling off on his RF ahead of his farrier appointment, which admittedly he was way overdue for (due to life circumstances- my fault not his).
Sure enough he tested slightly positive with the hoof testers.
Post trim, there’s a perceived (albeit slight) head bob with the RF. Boo.
Farrier and I both think (hope) it’s a brewing abscess. Stay tuned.
But for real- I did say penciled plans! Horses.
Oh no! Fingers crossed it is just an abscess, and that it blows out quick and clean with a fast recovery. It’s abscess season at our barn for sure.
There is something in the air I swear!
Noooooooooooooooooo 😦 😦
Aww man, come on Jack! Well, crossing my fingers that it is just an abscess!
solidarity, yo 😦
I almost mentioned you guys in my post! I know you can relate.
I really think this blog should be named like the sign I saw on a horse trailer: “Danger: Horses!”
It wouldn’t be wrong!
Hopefully just an abscess!
Fingers crossed for the easiest and most straight-forward abscess ever!
