Doc did say I could still ride him...put Desitin where the patches are till the hair grows back which does grow pretty quick. I probably won't ride til we go to Louisiana next weekend but will lounge him so he doesn't act like an idiot.
I will have to disinfect his saddle pad and all the brushes. Lee Ann came out and asked about what Doc said. I was telling her about it and she recommended some oral stuff that she and Ms. Jean had had luck with. I called Doc about it and Cassie is going to get back with me on it. She did later and Doc said it didn't work in his opinion any better than what I am going to do and it is $170 per horse. Gaaaa. I visited for a few minutes with Ms. Jean and Lee Ann on the patio. OMG the patio is gorgeous.

|Lots of hair gone but still more to go|
|Before nipping - omg they are long!!!|
|After nipping - but before rasping|

After I got him cleaned up I started on his hooves. I nipped them first because they were long! I had to pop him once. Sarge can be hard to trim. I turned him and Biscuit out in the arena so I could go get something to eat. I went to my car and the lights were on. OMG...I had left the car on ... not running but the key to the first turn. Lee Ann came and jumped it for me. I then hauled the trailer to Modica Bro. to have the back tire patched. I went and got lunch and the dust Dr. Schneider told me to get.

I finished rasping Sarge's feet. I put the medication on Biscuit's back and dusted Sarge like a rose bush. I took them one at a time down to the paddock.
