Its always something

Ain't that the truth.  Cadence's vaccine sight was looking pretty good last night.  Swelling was down almost 100%, and only a little heat.  It was looking worse again today, so I wonder if it gets better throughout the day.  Anyhow, today when I went to fetch her from her field, she had blood down her front left, and a nice gash on the lower front part of that shoulder.  She looked like she'd been in a knife fight!  The cut wasn't too bad, just bleeding a lot.  Also, due to the width of it, it isn't really patchable.  Thankfully, its not more than a centimeter deep so we left it open after thoroughly flushing it with saline.  Tonight I'm heading back out to clean it up again and put an aerosol bandage on it.  Hope its dried up a bit by tonight.

  1. Nina is off too. Don't you think they should do all this stuff over the winter and be nice and sound and healthy when the weather is good?
    Is her cut somewhere that it won't keep pulling open? Hope so and I hope it heals up fast.
