    Yes, Strangles IS Equine Distemper. They are both the same thing, they just go by different names. Here is a good article for you to read on it. https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/veterinary-science-and-veterinary-medicine/strangles

    The farm ponds are full now. Checked out our back pond today. Lots of wildlife tracks around it, too.

    You are certainly getting a lot of nice driving time! My mother went to a nursing home last month and it seems all my spare time is working through her stuff. That, and the rain. Keep inspiring, Cayuse!

    Yes, I heard they were the same thing. But the vet said there are over 100 strains of distemper; maybe strangles is one kind. He has never become lethargic and his nose seems better. So far no swelling underneath, though I've heard that comes toward the end of the cycle. My sister brought a miniature home from the same sale and she had to go on antibiotic as she was running a fever. Horses not connected at all, just the same sale. Her horse was kind of run down, though, and Nugget was not. We are doing a little ground work while I wait for the dentist. Just basic stuff, like turning, backing, whoa, and stand. It's too soppy here to do much, though I've taken them out on the paved road a few times, just so their feet can feel some dry land!

    Not to startle you, but distemper and strangles are pretty much the same thing, or so I was told years ago. If it is Strangles it's very manageable and cureable, just disgusting.

    Hopefully it is not distemper/strangles. He had noticeable respiratory noise yesterday but the nose was not as bad. Does not seem feverish at all. I went ahead and put them back together as he seemed stressed to be isolated and I figured dapper dan had already been exposed anyway. More rain today and more due this weekend. Easy to see how this soggy weather can be a health problem. He is due for his next parasite paste, but I will hold off for a while.

    We heard there was a well here 100 years ago, but no one alive remembers where. Most wells here are "gypy". Maybe what you call salty. Folks used to rely on cisterns to capture rain water but we are all on a rural water line now. Its wells tap an aquifer; we don't have a use limit but pay for usage. What measurement is a "meg"? We were listed as a drought area until this big rain.

    Yes they are an ornamental Pear ( Chanticleer). I have a bore at home that we are allowed to pump 12 meg of water a year from. We used it recently to top the lake up , unfortunately noone knows how much water is available and the other issue with it is , its a little salty. Due to the salt , I wouldnt apply it directly to the plants and trees, though I consider ourselves lucky to have one. Do you have wells where you are ? Do you catch much of the water from the mountains?

    Are those pear trees? Do you have wells?

    The only Kodak moment I have lately is the result of 8" of rain in two days. This our farm pond overflowing. The edge goes under the horse motel, making a soggy mess there. Many little fish were stranded in the pasture from the overflow.

    First thing I thought of was Canada when I saw the picture, then I see you are from Canada! Our maple leaves here in New Hampshire are just starting to turn.
