Can I Just Copy and Paste?
Scott was back out today. Tucker is still showing a strong pulse in his foot and reaction to the hoof testers.
Scott talked to my vet again and this time we added a pad to the bandaging/poultice routine. So, now I put on the Animalintex, a hoof pad, the diaper inside out too keep it from soaking up the water from the poultice, a strip of poultice on the heel/coronary band, a good wrapping of vetrap and then a layer of duct tape. It's quite an engineering feat to get it all in place.
The vets are still convinced it's an abscess. Scott is thinking it's something else. But what??
It's not helping me that I threw my back out somewhere along the way. Nor did it help that I weed whacked the 150' front bank and around most of the trees and house. Shall I say that neither body nor mind managed to do any work with Chance again??
Currently the horses are just kind of big housepets....good for cuddling, caring for, and general adoration. No work for them.
Guess they don't mind too much--except for Tucker who is spending hours and hours in his stall.
