Update on Emma
Everything I have read up on about a broken pelvis in the horse, is pretty optimistic about the outcome, at least with the kind of break she seems to have. No ex rays, the treatment with or without the definitive diagnosis of ex rays was the same. I really wouldnt have wanted to put her through the three hour trailer ride to OSU in Corvalis, Oregon. It probably would have been really painful. It also wasnt in the pocket book, a minimum $500. to go over there for that. So I did take a very conservative approach. We havnt done good with the weight that the Vet wanted her to loose. LOL How do you lock a horse up in a small pen and stall and keep them from going crazy!! She is getting grass hay in slow feeder nets, when I am gone all day at work I fill two of them, two leaves of hay each. She gets about two cups of soaked beat pulp, am and pm. It makes it a lot easier to give her meds and supplements when she is used to getting something.
So thats my update for now! My garden is exploding with produce and my Dahlias are all blooming! It has been a warm Summer up hear in Washington.
