We have a new horse arriving today. Although we had felt we were at full capacity, we felt we had to take in this 20 year old, abandoned and neglected horse. We will post more information in a few days. Upon seeing this photo, we could not turn him down.
Jovita came up with an eyelid abscess, probably from roughhousing with her mother. We treated it for a few days and it healed well.
We installed a floor in the hay shed. Our friends attached OSB on top of pallets and we have a safe, inexpensive floor.Now, loose hay and I will not be falling through the slats in the pallets.
Then, we got about 13 tons of nice, new Bermuda hay. Thank you to everyone who donated and shared our hay drive.
We had been treating Poco’s deformed hoof for an infection in the cleft. The cleft is actually frog material and the infection was stubborn, despite weekly soaking & spraying. I then decided to try going with a dry treatment and made a powder out of activated charcoal, berberine and grapefruit seed extract powders. Within a day, the infection was dried up and Poco was feeling better and using his foot to bear more weight.
Poco says, “HELLO!”
The kangaroo rats show up nightly, and bring a few bunnies with them.
