Vet work

A couple weeks ago or so, I went to get the horses in and Brody had stuck a big stick under the skin on his neck … I pulled it out and was going to town so stopped at the vet’s and got some stuff to doctor him.. Tate has been riding him so he did most of the doctoring… he’s about healed up.. might leave a little scar but it’s a long way from his heart…. then the other day when we got the horses in Pilgrim was limping.. cleaned the foot and couldn’t find anything wrong but he was swollen up almost to his knee.. We gave him Banamine every day for a couple days and it got lots better, but then he was getting lamer, so asked a the local vet to stop and look.. sure as heck, we found a puncture in the sole of his foot.. either a bruise that finally broke open or a nail wound.. we soaked it in Epsom salt and some iodine last night and he’s much better this morning..gave him some penicillin and soaked it again and gave him a little grain to eat while it was soaking.. I got an old truck inner tube and made a long boot so i could put it on the leg and then tie it to his neck so when he tried to move around he didn’t knock the bucket over and spill the solution, like he did the night before.. works pretty slick.. looks like he will be healed pretty soon.. I am missing him.. got a couple days of cow works at a neighbors and need a dependable horse… this morning cows were out where Tate had for got to close a gate so he and Gabe and Lige went to put them back.. me and Eshack took the tractor to a water tank that was needing so  dirt work around it.. he got to steer on the way back and he thought that was pretty cool.. think I will work on leather this afternoon..Gramma has a bunch of kids here she is babysetting.. chance of rain tonight I saw but not much of a chance, keep praying we need lots more..
