As anyone in the equine industry can attest, horses can kill themselves in a padded cell!
Case #1 - Ambrosio, my one month old colt, punctured his eye last week on, I don't know what. He's now been in the horsey hospital, with mom, for 8 days with a bacterial infection in that eye. The doctor's believe he'll make a good recovery with possibly a small blind spot in that eye; he'll be in the hospital for at least another week. $$$$$$
Case #2 - Belleza, my white mare, is having another bout of tying up; basically the horses muscles are overworked and aren't getting enough oxygen. She hasn't been ridden in a few months so I can only assume that she got worked up after I trailered Ambrosio and his mom, Isabella, to the equine hospital. More $$$$
I'm splitting my time between visiting the foal and mom at the hospital and administering shots, here at the ranch, to Belleza. In between I'm finding that doing some artwork is helping keep my mind busy, hence the 3 photomanips in the past 4 days. At least that's free!
