Now, I guess Cadence had moved on and was looking the other way/not paying attention or something, because when I got down from the little ledge/step thingy she jumped backwards. This landed her squarely on the thoroughly water-logged lawn, which in turn caused her to slip and fall onto her left hind hip and side. She sprung up right away, and aside from re-affirming her fear of this particular trailer, all seemed to be well.
Later on that night, I got a call from our BO. Cadence was in a lot of pain, and although she wasn't colicing or anything she felt that the vet should be called to administer some banamine & check her over. I assented, and said I'd be on my way ASAP. I got there just a few moments before the vet, and when I arrived she was lying on the ground rolling in pain. She presented like a colic, but had normal gut sounds, was not acting like it was her stomach that was in pain, and had defecated recently.
The vet that was on call that evening was one whom I'm not particularly fond of, & her actions last night only reaffirmed those feelings. Can someone explain to me why you'd do a rectal and check for an impaction on a mare that's defecating normally, has gut noises on both sides, and has a clear reason for being in pain? Either way, she gave her the banamine & something for her 'colic' (which was non-existent if you ask me) and was on her way. I can't wait to get the bill for that one.
In other less depressing news, I have some pics of Miss L. Please excuse my attire, & hot pink camo boots. Its cold, & they're warm... even if they are ugly.
Lovin' the lope... look at that collection!
