Lily wound, jumping in the trailer and finally, rain.
I knew we should declare it Saturday.
Lily has some sort of ... thing on her back. Stephanie, who loves horses and works in our office, had come over with Sierra. As she was petting Lily she noticed a swelling and a scab in the center of her back, just behind the wither. About the size of a matchbook.
The swelling was down below it and when she pushed on it a bit of pus came out.
We peeled back the scab, ran a cold water hose on it and the swelling went down.
Did I take pictures so I could get a blogger diagnosis? No. I'll take some in the morning when I go check on her and run the water on it.
I don't know if it's a bite, it looks a little more like a scrape, but a pretty nasty one. It's in the area where horses tend to groom one another, so I don't know if it could be that.
I'm hoping its not Cibolo. Otherwise we are going to have a problem...
Cibolo is now leaping into the trailer. He's like a parelli video.
And he'll hang out...
And back out calmly.
And it rained. Not much, but windshield wiper worthy. A nice break in what has been an oppressive summer...
