Here it is:
Poor pony :(
The vet said she's seen a lot of these types of burns after the recent snowstorm and she can't figure out why. She said to treat like a sunburn (I am expert level 115 at treating/preventing equine sunburns usually) and assured me she was pretty certain it wasn't alsike toxicity. I also couldn't find any alsike clover in their pasture.
I had to cancel my first lesson at my new barn for my vet appointment today but I have rescheduled it to next week. I'm a combination of excited/nervous about that!
On the weekend Henry wore a saddle and walked over a tarp like it was no big deal. He's gotten a bit pushy lately and we've been having some "conversations" about that. I'm starting to brainstorm how to help him have a better winter this year, he seems to have a heck of time not looking like a skeleton in the winter!
I got a few good rides in on Apollo too!
Note the snow! A little different from my last outdoor ride!
I forgot my lungeline outside, somewhere under this snowpile....
I've been feeling so tired lately and I can't seem to sleep enough to feel rested. So I apologize if this post makes no sense or if I leave nonsense comments on the blogs of others! :P
