The Difference a Year Makes
Sunday, 14 November 2010

Due to the inclement weather the last couple of weeks I decided it might be time for Baby to start wearing her rugs. I was well prepared this year and bought her some (4) decent rugs when they were well priced during the summer. BUT they don't fit here this year. During the Equine Touch course, Heather, the instructor commented on how Baby now had muscle development around her chest and shoulders.

I was near to tears this morning - tears of happiness that is!! Those of you who have been following Baby's story will understand

frontright311209.jpgBaby foundered on her right front hoof over the Christmas. She was going downhill fast. I managed to get a vet out to do x-rays to confirm how bad the situation really was. He also gave her intravenus Bute and left me enough to keep her going for the next 5 days.

Woke up to 3 inches of snow this morning. I had to deliver something up to a neighbour in the village about 2 miles away but didn't think it would be too safe in the car.

So I tacked up Polly, including Rhythm Beads with jingle bells to help calm her, and decided to attempt it on horseback!! 

Harleys Warts have Gone

Harley's warts have gone!!!photo0142.jpg

7 weeks after starting treatment with Sarc-ex and Thuja cream with 2 weeks of Restore, Harley's warts have completely gone.

When I first spoke to my vet he suggested that it could be 6-9 months months for the virus to run it course so I am happy to sea the back of them in just under 8 weeks.

Poilly is on the same treatment for her sarcoids and while they haven't gone yet they certainly appear to be shrinking. Will keep you all posted on her progress
