Beth got up by herself on December 2nd! She lay down in the yard in the sunshine and an hour later she was back up. I'm disappointed I didn't see her get up as I'd like to have seen how she managed, but still, it's good news.
Tyler, the older Thoroughbred gelding who came in a couple of months ago, started having some issues. I wasn't sure if he had a choke or cold or what, just had a bit of a cough and odd head tilt. Our vet came out and was unable to tube him, there seemed to be some blockage up by his larynx. Tyler is on antibiotics and bute for the time being to see if that helps. If it doesn't help we'll have to take him in to the clinic to be scoped in order to see what is going on in his throat.
Little Marvin, the pony, seriously injured his eye yesterday. It was all pus-y and closed up. Our vet came out (she seems to be here a lot!) to look at it. He has a puncture above his eye and a laceration to the lower back part of his eyeball. Hopefully it will heal up okay but he will have to be on meds for a while. We'll see how long he's amenable to having cream put in his eye. Good thing he's little!
