1) The farrier called Sunday night to schedule an appointment for Monday at noon. I showed up at 12.03 on Monday. They were already there. Yikes! I figured I'd have a good half hour to lunge Izzy before they showed up.
2) The wondermare had an abscess. For serious. I should have taken a picture. Dave found it when cleaning up her left hind frog. It was a nice, neat capsule that had already blown out on it's own. Did I mention that she was never off a single day? Yeah... magic pony.
3) In light of #2, I needed an anti-thrush treatment to clean up the abscess hole. I went to the tack store, and get this, left with MORE money than I went in with. Yeah. I made $41.64 on that trip and it included buying two things that cost about $40. Apparently, some of my consignment items sold.
So. I now have thrush buster for her lil' feets (ok, large, well-shaped hooves) and desitin (farrier's recommendation) to help make her hoofies pretty. We see the dentist today at 3pm. Cross your fingers for her that it isn't a major deal and for me that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
ETA: Just looked back at my January posts and noticed that on the 29th, she was fussy about going forward into contact, especially to the right. My theory is that since the left side of her face is the one that's messed up, taking extra contact on the outside (left) rein was not fun. Maybe that's why she's been so sticky to the right? I'm excited to find out.
