I went out to the barn hoping that Biscuit would come into the corral. Thank goodness he did - he wanted some sunflower seeds. I shut the gate behind him. He backed up some when I went to halter him but that was about it. I walked him up to the front and Jamie hopped out of the Gator and came and took Biscuit from me and put him on the washrack. Jamie is such a lovely person inside and out. So blessed to have such nice people looking over my horses day in and day out.
I went into the tack room and Brutis was laying in the corner and didn't even lift his head. Hummmmm that worried me so I called out to him a few time til he got up. Ok...He was ok...so I had to thump him on the sides and love him up. I got the pink longe whip and LeAnn's longe line. I snapped it on Biscuit's halter and headed for the arena. I noticed Biscuit was walking kind of slow. His back right seemed a little tight. I know that Mike trimmed him pretty aggressively so I think his toes were perhaps a little sore.
I asked him to Walk On and pointed in the way I wanted him to go. He went willingly. I asked him to trot and he wasn't too interested in that - so I really think it was his toes...not being a toot. I worked on a signal for him to come to me. He came into me three times perfectly. We just worked about 10 minutes or so. He did a good job.
I put him back on the wash rack and go out my medicated shampoo and washed the fungus area only. I rinsed him off and did wash out his sheath. I did put shampoo on his mane and washed that but other than that it was just a rinse with water. I let the shampoo sit on him for 15 minutes as directed. I scraped him off and let him graze while he dried. I called Cassie and asked her about his fungus not healing. She thinks I am keeping it too wet. I let it totally dry while letting him graze and then I put him up.
I did go back late this evening and he did come into the corral. I put just a tiny amount on his withers and gave him carrots. Sarge refused carrots because I had meds on my hands.
