Annie progress

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm adding daily and sometimes twice daily photos of Annie's progress or lack of to the previous blog post.  That way I can clearly see if it gets worse or better and we have a log of sequential photos.  So if you want to monitor Annie keep checking back on the last post.

Annie the incredible swelling horse

On 9-12 Annie came in from the pasture with a strange swelling on the side of her right muzzle and a little swelling on the side of her right neck.  The swelling slowly started to get worse and spread downward over the next wee following the right side down into the right leg.  On Monday the vet visited.  By the following Saturday she was even more swollen and puffy.  She has been hit with dex, lasix, SMZ's, and bute.  The guess is it's either an allergy to something (we got new hay on 9-9) or a tumor on her lymph nodes.  Right now we are in a wait and see pattern.  She's currently confined to the arena and is on special hay from outside the barn.  Jingles for a good horse.

October HT wrap up

My BIG MOVE UP at the October show was a big fat fail.  This is me, dismounting off of Stella in the middle of a massive XC melt down...
