I decided to take a break from training and blogging the past couple of days. Things are so stressful and getting worse by the minute (husband may get denied for long term disability for his back injury because of lazy doctor notes). We finally found a home for Sycamore (goat) because he isn't happy without companionship and I was looking for him out on the lease land. Chrome was following me around, trotting beside me with his neck arched. I don't know how I taught him to do that but it sure is cute. He was galloping around and being totally silly so the leg isn't bothering him at all! I felt bad for not clicker training. He wanted to so bad.

The swelling has gone down, but the puncture wound is draining white (occasionally yellow) . . . ooze (doesn't sound as gross as puss lol). I called the vet because the ooze was concerning me, but he said it isn't a big deal since he's still sound. He said if the wound is still oozing when we finish the antibiotics that we will extend it just to be on the safe side. So on the injury front things are the same (or hopefully getting better), just wish life in general would improve. Anyway sorry to be a downer. I'll be back in a few days. Everyone take care.


  1. I just read your previous post with pics of Chrome's puncture wound. Trips to the vet with an injured horse are stressful enough without truck troubles. Glad the wound is healing and that it missed the joint.

  2. You can even give the probiotics now, while he is on his meds. It will help keep the happy flora in his gut around. Then continue probiotics after the meds like you mentioned. Otherwise, it all sounds great and not much more you can do. Hope you had a great weekend!
