Dreaming of spring

The rain has finally stopped and the vet has come and gone. I am dreaming of spring and local goodness.Jake is in his stall for two weeks. TWO WEEKS (OMG).Matt was absolutely right, after two days of soaking, the abscess burst and a bunch of the funk leaked out.Nicole (the vet) came and cut away a drain in Jake's frog so the puss can drain from the top and bottom of his hoof. We have added an antibiotic 17 pills 2 X's a day. I am hoping and praying and dreaming of riding in the spring air.I am sure the crazy rain and thick mud produced this abscess.I wish you could see Jake,he is holding his head higher today.
The rest of this week has promise of spring.Tomorrow is CSA pick up day,and Lagers first CGC class.
