11 Days

11 days is what it took before my normally fairly easy to handle baby OTTB lost his marbles on stall rest. Technically he started losing them on day 10 but was somewhat manageable. When he gets hot/excited he loves nothing more then to stand on his back legs and black stallion it. So we spent most of our walk yesterday doing that with the tail straight up and snorting. In his defense there was a lot of barn traffic with the eclipse and a clinic. Today however was just him losing his marbles!




  Second bandage change last weekend

I took him straight to the round pen to hand walk and within 3 seconds of leaving his stall he was airborn 😳 Once in the round pen all of his hooves were not on the ground for a solid 5 minutes. And when I gave up and decided to just let him loose in the round pen it took me another 5 minutes to get his lead rope off. The dude needed to blow off some steam! Thankfully he only carried on with his antics for a couple of minutes and it seemed to be just what he needed. Thank god he didn't have a tendon/ligament injury! Not sure he could handle that without drugs.




From bandage change 3 days ago

My regular vet is coming out when he gets back in town and I'm hoping for a shorter time frame of him being off work. He needs his job back!

  1. 10 days is an impressive amount of time to keep it together. Stay alive!
