With all my doom and gloom of the last post I forgot to say the most exciting part of my week so far!!!!!
Farley is, as of our ride yesterday, as sound as she was before I vaccinated!!!!!
It only took 5 months. *sigh*. Definitely going to NSAID her before I do anything for the fall (which includes Rabies –> WAY too many coyotes, skunks, and other critters to skip that one!).
She moved out QUITE nicely on a gravel road at a trot (and tried to buck me off when I asked for a canter) and moved well and soundly on rocky trails for the whole ride. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
Speaking about NSAIDs, I have a whole scary pathology post with PICTURES for you on NSAIDs, kidneys, and dehydrated horses. In a nutshell; DON’T DO IT –> but of course you’ll want to tune in for the gore and commentary on another fascinating vetmed tidbit.
