Bath Day

Today was a long day. I drug my husband out to the horse rescue to help build shelters. We were only able to spend about 4 hours there because I needed (wanted?) to go check on Denali. I guess she got into it with another horse yesterday. We were going over possible scenarios as to how she got the huge mark on her chest. I still think it's from Ophelia, not to blame her, but where it's located I think it would be hard for Teak (other horse) to get her through the fence.

Today was the last day for the Bute, and we'll see how the swelling goes from here. I just don't know if I'm going to make it out there much this week. Stupid real job. I have a Huge meeting on Thursday with Lawyers involved so I need to get ready for that.

I lunged Denali for about half an hour today. She only had her halter on, and no bit (duh) and she was SUCH A GOOD GIRL! I was so proud of her. I think I now figured out why her hind fetlock had been swollen. (Trying to kill Teak.)

She got a bath today, probably her last until Spring. She was a really good girl. I was very happy that the hubby was there to help hold her. She stands still for so long, then gets antsy. Her hair is still adorable. Short, but adorable. I like it.

I'll update you this week on Denali. Hopefully her belly swelling goes down.

Nothing like naughty mares. I could never turn Izzy out with a herd--she'd just beat on everybody until someone beat her up. At least Denali doesn't do that.

Yeah, this is the first successful experience that Denali has had. It's only because she doesn't get fed outside. If she did, she couldn't ever be with another horse. She's only turned out with one other horse.
