Today Henry beat the record on his vet bill. When I went to feed this morning I saw his eye had drainage. No big deal right? Well later on at about 11am I went out to get him so we could go to the barn to ride and get his feet done. His eye looks terrible now, squinty, more leaking. This was all a distraction because when I went to lead him he could hardly walk! It turns out as he was rubbing his eye on his leg to wipe away the tears he stuck his hoof through the fence and set back. Way to go Grace. Way to ensure your immediate vet care for your eye! Thank goodness for his thick rubber bell boots or else this could have been so much worse. His bell boots now have a hole in them and need replacing. After cleaning it up there was an injury to the coronary band. His vet was pretty sure it was just superficial but she pressurized the coffin bone joint just to be sure. I had never heard of this procedure until today. Afterward she took care of his eye ducts and prescribed an antibiotic ointment since he scratched his eye on something. My valentine gave me a huge vet bill for Valentine’s Day. We also have our first show on the 23rd. He will be off for a week so we are unsure if he will be sound enough to attend by then. We will just wait and see. We were supposed to go XC schooling at the show grounds tomorrow, but alas I am cursed when it comes to that. (Perpetually cancelled) I am very glad he got a tetanus booster today. He is also on oral antibiotics in addition to the one for his eye. This adventure spurred me to finally throw together a wash rack at home. So there is that at least. The offending junk fence has been removed and replaced.
