When I went out to the barn today and visited with The LeAnns and Mr. Gus and Ms. Jean. LeAnn was giving the foal and her momma a bath. That little filly is just precious...and she is a pretty good sized little girl too. Nice big butt and broad back. She is going to be very nice. She was getting a bath and being a good girl about it. She is handled on a regular basis so she will grow up to be a wonderful horse for someone.
I then went and brought up Biscuit. He and Sarge were under their shed to keep cool. I walked Biscuit slowly up front. My knee is not happy walking that far so I go slow so not to aggravate it. I put him on the wash rack and brushed him and put Silvadene on his chest. It was puckered up but not totally hairless. Poor guy. I wanted to look at his hooves but he was wanting to refuse to pick up his front left. I insisted. I trimmed his front hooves again....lowered the heel just a tad. I got Lee Ann B's advice on that. I am still unsure of doing feet so I like to have a second opinion! I rasped his front feet and worked on his mustang roll. I put thrush medicine in his frogs and walked him back down to the pasture. I wish he was up closer - at least til my knee stops hating me. I am going to put thrush meds in those frogs every other day until it is gone. It came back so fast and chewed up his frog. Gaaaa....that is nasty business.
