Feeling Much Better

Just a quick note to report that Louie's leg is looking MUCH better. Almost all of the swelling is gone, and it is no longer tender or warm, and Louie is moving around quite comfortably on it. I think our treatment regimen worked. Now just a few little lacerations to heal up and he'll be good as new! Thanks to Tom, the barn manager, for all of his hard work giving Louie his antibiotics this week- and I know how much of a struggle it was because Louie saw that dosing syringe coming and faught pretty hard to keep it away! Also special thanks to Sandy for her "drop-everything to help out a friend" attitude.

Hopefully this weekend/next week we'll get started with the desensitization I had planned for him, followed by the introduction of the cart! Yipee!


  1. Louie is so beautiful! It's fun to see a blog about Saddlebreds.
    p.s. I am glad that Louie's leg is getting better!
