MAMA TESS is very sick, as we all know… so, the updates are spread out because not much happens on a daily basis… Growing out her hooves and keeping her healthy isn’t all that exciting – except to me.
For example, If she puts her feet in front of each other as she walks, I am DELIGHTED!
If she turns by putting one foot over the other, I’m OVER THE MOON!
When she meets me at the gate with bright eyes and a smile, MY DAY IS MADE!
Again, it will be a miracle if she becomes totally sound after this battle with founder. But, she is trying. She fights every day.
She is not moping around or waiting to die.
In fact, she’s waiting to go O-U-T-S-I-D-E!!! (She cannot understand why I don’t let her O-U-T!)
Here is a photolog of MT today, plus a short video.
A SHORT VIDEO
You will see that she is moving but still very sore. This was in the morning, before I had applied the slippers. She does well without the slippers, but I think the slippers make her more comfortable on the hard aisle floor.
HORSE AND MAN is a blog in growth… if you like this, please pass it around!
She looks great. I am hoping and praying for a speedy recovery. I have a 2 year old that has been sick since the middle of July and it is hard to watch them suffer knowing that it will take time to heal.
Hi, I’ve been following your blog for a while on facebook. I run a horse farm in Massachusetts. I have a lot of experience with founder horses. This by all means does not mean I can cure all of them, but I have been able to turn around some pretty bad cases. I would be glad to talk to you if you would like. Let me know.
