|Looking so much better!!!|
|Warm compress to his eye|
|Drops for his eye|
I put him on the wash rack and went to get hot water. I put hot compresses on his eye. He was a little antsy about it but settled down and let me put the hot rag on his eye. I put the drops in without too much flak...just little. I figured out the shot needle and pulled up 10cc of bannamine and injected it into his left neck area. Poor guy...a drop of blood came out. I got the rag to wash it off.
Lee Ann and I looked at his eye closely. I dreamed last night it was getting cloudy. Ugh...it was PERFECT. I noticed that he has a slight swelling in his right chest area. I think he was aggravating Sarge and Sarge let him have it. Biscuit probably whapped his head on something getting away from Sarge. Sigh...when will he ever learn to leave Sarge alone?
I decided it was time to put the new girth on my saddle while waiting to put in more drops. I took the old girth off...oh my goodness - it stinks. Biscuit can be a smelly boy!!! I took the guards off this time ONE AT A TIME!! I put them back on carefully. It fits but I think a 30" one might have been better but I am happy with it.
|4 panels attached to the side of the trailer|
|Braces that Doug P. made and Edgar and Jaime put on!!! Wow!|
|Portable Corral on the side of the Featherlite|
We are both so excited and I know Lee Ann B and Esther are too. We filled up the water container in the trailer so we have water!! We have an Astroturf mat to put down in the back of the trailer where Esther and I will be. That will work for me...I was coughing in the front of the trailer the other day. I will be better off in the back.
Still got to put my food in, clothes and bed linen. We are leaving around 7:30 or so from the barn. We will stop in Winnie to pick up Esther and Hershey and then off to Brazos Bend Park. We will have to set up camp when we get there - wash out the trailer and let it dry. Set up the corral panels for the horses to stay in. I am hoping we can get in a ride around 2:00. That will give us a few hours to ride.
