Horse nursing

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 4 november 2013 23:23

Is absolutely part of being a breeder and even though I get very stressed when things happens to my horses I actually love the 'nursing' part, after all that's when you bond with the horses and get to really know their personalities. Today my plan was to let Camaron out in upper field and do a photo-session but instead I had to go earlier and get the mares under roof because we've had extreme storm winds. So all snuggled up in their beds and I became the daily horse-nurse again. Vet had Tino's stitches removed today and had left the leg without bandage to breathe. Hmm, I did not want to leave it unprotected just yet. He got a Arnica/Plus Healing Cream massage around the scar that he loved, it's super itchy and he got a cute long trunk, he's the guy that loves it all! I did a light bandage that I will change tomorrow of course together with clean-up and a new massage, heal heal little wound can't wait to see his leg normal again. He is not lame but it is abit swollen and alittle infected in the edges. Hopefully weather will change so I can get them both out on wednesday, little pirates need to move. Camaron got his cleanup and has now a new cream for his hoof-wound. We are getting to know each other and I let him perform his levadas in the stable now, very good boy! I am not super happy with the healing of Nova's wound so I have ordered a gel-spray that protects and helps the healing process. She does not accept any form of bandage, totally out of the question it gets ripped off in one milli-second. Donoso and Start are my big support these days, they are just fine and today they did not need absolutely anything from me since they have had 3 days of good workouts. Pica was cool also after grooming.
Halagador is doing great! He will actually be in a equestrian show already this month, I look forward to seeing Mr Black in his right element!
I hope it will be a little more professional than this :)


And that he will get to do some of his favourite stuff like this

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
