Now she sliced herself

*thunk*

*thunk* *thunk* *thunk*

(sound of my head on desk)

Journey has a slice in the bend of her foot below the pastern but above the heel bulb.  She was vet-wrapped, and booted.

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW.

She didn't seem off at all.  A little squirrelly which is normal for a horse that has been lazy for several weeks.

It isn't real deep, but will be problematic with a boot, and would get skinned open without one.  I can't ride for a few days anyway due to my work schedule, so I'm gonna smear antibiotic and swat on it and hope for the best.

*thunk* *thunk* *thunk*



On a happier note our mileage since the BBBDR began which is about the time I started tracking on the new Garmin.

(drum roll)

132 hours logged in the saddle
53,630 feet of elevation gain
584.18 miles of distance.

GO SPOTTED WONDER!

  1. Ouch! We had a filly do that at work just by pawing at one of the wire fences and catching herself... not nice!
