|Moonrise over Three Fingers~|
I called Dean for an appointment tomorrow. Putting a poultice on wasn't easy! She's touchy about her hind legs anyway - so we did some dancing... Finally - I kicked her! That settled it! She stood with the foot on the ground for me to wrap! (evil grin) I can't see any lameness whatsoever - my hopes are up that she will be just fine.
Khari's shoes were worn & it was time to get those pads OFF! I never like to pad, but for rocky rides I do appreciate the extra insurance & the often debated shock absorbing properties of Shock Tamers. ( I started using them when they first came onto the market, for Jas - who's feet problems were legendary). Once Khari's feet were trimmed up & before the shoes went on - I painted her feet with Durasole. Her hoof walls were nice & thick.
By the time I was done with chores & heading down from the barn, the moon was coming up over the mountains. Incredibly beautiful evening.
