Her leg looked better tonight. Less swelling, and even a scab over the wound for the first time. Cleaning it out was pretty easy — she is always good. The wound washed up clean, even though she had pulled the bandage all the way down around her fetlock. Hopefully it will stay up better tonight (so long as she doesn’t pull it down with her teeth again).

She is apparently eating all of her antibiotics as well. Surprising since she is getting 13 crushed tablets in her morning and evening grain. Maybe adding a little corn oil makes all of the difference.

The vet comes back out tomorrow afternoon. Here’s hoping she thinks the cut looks good enough to keep on the current track…
