Stall time, that is. Mean auntie Sandy is making Louie stay inside away from his buddies for a few days, and, he has to take yucky medicine. Oh the poor thing, you should have seen him today, absolutely heartbroken. I'm sure he must have thought that someone forgot about him when they let all the horses out this morning. He sure misses his buddies, and his run-around time.
Well, why this torture? you ask? On Thursday I noticed a little bit of swelling in one of his hind legs. It was worse on Friday, and he wasn't lame persay, just moving rather uncomfortably. So, our *nice* aunt Sandy came out to look at him and called the vet, who recommended a few days of bute and stall rest. So, we're unsure of what it is, and really it's mild to my minimalist eye, but I guess we'll listen to the experts.
Today the swelling was just about totally gone, so we're doing one more day of bute and stall rest and we'll see what he looks like on Monday. At least he got a new treat to keep him company!
