This was a tough one this week, because I kept forgetting to take my camera outside with me. With the melt, its been really sloppy in the farm yard, and sucking mud while slipping and falling a couple of times, does not go well with my camera, let me tell you! I did, however, finally manage pictures for the prompts…so, here we go…
She’s just about 8 months old, so she is a bundle of energetic wiggle. What finally did the trick to get her to sit still was a huge flock of Canada geese flying over.
Green just made me happy…in this case, the new green grass growing in the yard.
Inner rear leg. When I have the camera with me, and I see things like this, I like to take a picture, so I can look at the injury close up, so I know what I’m dealing with. This is from a kick. Someone kicked her, again. Sable is our biggest girl, standing somewhere around 16.2 hands high. For you non-horse folks, that is, approximately 5 1/2 feet at her withers-the point where her neck meets her shoulders. She’s a big girl! She’s also our most timid girl, and so, sometimes she catches hell from The Paints. Astrid too-I’ve caught Astrid chewing on her back leg. I put a stop to that with some baby butt cream. It tastes awful, and helps heal injuries.
Since this already scabbed-it looks about 12 hours old-I left it alone. I’ll keep an eye on it for the next few days, make sure there’s no infection, and let it heal. As long as there’s no heat in the area, it’s healing fine. Some times (only some times, mind you…if you aren’t sure, *always* contact the vet) less is more, when it come to treating horses. We’ve dealt with these kicks on Sable since she came home, so, unfortunately, I have some experience with watching them heal.
I asked Max to show me what he’d look like if he was looking in the mirror. I guess this says it all!
I took an order for a few pairs of moccasins this past week. I had to take pictures of the available colors I had, so that the client could choose the colors he wanted. These bright colors of leather are for vamps…the tops that are decorated with beading.
