Sunday update from Palomino & Rocky
Here's the latest from the land of rescued foals! Terri
Sorry it has been awhile. Rocky is doing wonderfully. His tummy issues seem to be settling down and he is growing so fast.
night Suri's mama, Denise, called me up and was pretty upset. Suri
(one of the foals that came from Nevada to our rescue last spring) had
managed to cut her head wide open.
So "Grandpa Pat", (he and his wife Teresa are the
folks that loan us the "foal room" in Nevada when we pick up these
little ones) drove me down to Denise's. (I had just taken some pain
pills for my knee so didn't want to drive.) The vet couldn't locate any
of his techs, so he was going to give her some antibiotics and pain
meds and come back the next day to stitch her up. But Denise told him
we were on the way so we were able to get her all stitched up. She got
10 stitches, which would have been way more on a person as they put the
stitches much further apart.
When we arrived, Denise had kept Suri calm and I was
extremely proud of both of them. If Denise had not been putting in
the time and effort and training she has with Suri, the whole ordeal
would have been much worse for everyone all around. It was exhausting,
as it always is when one of your "kids" is hurt. But considering the
injury, all went extremely well.
However...... Rocky did not make it quite so easy
on Dalton. As soon as we left he took off his diaper and then was kind
enough to leave a present on the floor for Dalton. After "clean up on
Aisle Rocky", Dalton was going to put a diaper on him, but that did not
happen. Then Rocky proceeded to make some more messes before we got
home, but all in all, everything was ok. Dalton did a wonderful job
making sure that Rocky was safe, and as they say, all's well that ends
well. Suri even has pretty stitches.
Headin' off for bed now. Hope you all had a wonderful day.
THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US!
