The vet’s office called me on Saturday to see if I wanted to come and pick up Lily. It was close to closing time and they would be gone, but I would be able to get into the barn. I just had to make sure it was locked up again. Also it is convenient that my vet happens to live right next to his practice. He was actually working on spreading some gravel on the drive with his Bob Cat. So he stopped and talked to us about Lily after we got her in the trailer. The tests have been sent to I think Tennessee. That kind of surprised me because sometimes tests go to Kansas State University which is the main veterinary school here in Kansas. But they don’t do the Cushing’s test there. I can’t remember now what the name of the University was now. I won’t know anything for five to seven days. Ugh! I want to know something now!
My vet did call the farrier he uses a lot but had to leave a message and hadn’t heard back from him yet. He is a good farrier and is always busy and hard to get a hold of. If I don’t hear from him by Tuesday I will have to get a hold of my farrier’s replacement. My regular farrier is semi retiring and a younger, and I must say very good looking, (hehe!) who is just learning will be taking over for him. He has been to the schools and worked with my farrier a lot so I am hoping he will be as good. Lily does need to be trimmed pretty badly and I think my vet wants some sort of pads put on her front feet.
I did get a video of the homecoming and this is my very first attempt to put a video on a post. I am hoping it will work. Hubby and I were having a bit of a conversation. I was going to try and edit it out, but I am not sure how to do that and I decided it is part of the video so bare with me. 🙂
I checked the preview and it worked! 🙂 I am so happy. I hope you all like it. And if you know horses and have any suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
I think Lily may have celebrated a little too much. This morning when I went out to check on her, she was laying down again. When she got up she was pretty gimpy again. She was on a stall mat the whole time she was a the vet’s. I think that helped her a lot. Our ground is pretty chewed up and kind of rough. Although, since it was in the upper 60s yesterday, and quite wonderfully nice, the ground was a bit softer than usual. And I have only Bute in pill form and has to be broken into small pieces or crushed and put in with the grain. I even put in a little molasses which normally the horses love. But, Lily as before decided there was something in her food that she doesn’t want. And it didn’t help that all the others wanted some too and kept interfering. Diamond manged to get me bopped in the forehead because she was biting at Lily. Then as I took a swipe at her I managed to get some molasses in my hair. I will have to get some Bute in the paste form tomorrow if I can.
I will let you all know what I find out about the Cushing’s test. Until then:
Stay Safe and God Bless!
