I agree Cassie,get some good fly spray or in the meantime Vinegar will work

It stinks so much that the mozzies won't like her much.

We have had mosquitoes hatch off and on here this month. I was worried to spray Jewels belly with spray but read that apple cider vinegar works well to repel mosquitoes. I tried it and Jewel didnt mind that smell at all. It did work temporarily to keep the mosquitoes away for a night. It is supposed to be safe to spray all around their belly. I avoid the face.

And both Penny and Suzie are looking amazing! So exciting about their upcoming husbands! I can't wait to see their babies next year!

You're holiday pics are gorgeous as well. Glad you had such a good time. Sorry little Finn was sick but glad he got better!

Smartie isn't well
default_sad.png


he got his feet trimmed on Saturday and the farrier trimmed to much off I think...
default_sad.png
he is lame on his front right leg and has a pulse on his front left poor sooky man! the bites from the flies I think are a little infected too as his right leg is swollen
default_sad.png
given him some bute he is on a course of this for the next 3 days and a tetanus shot and if the swelling doesn't come down by tomorrow Kylie my vet is coming out to see him... I hate seeing my beautiful big man not feeling well, he was so miserable yesterday and didn't even talk to me
default_sad.png


was alot happier this morning after his first dose but I can't afford him to be getting sick at his age and just before winter... will keep you updated with how he is.

Thanks Diane,

I got Dad to help me give Smartie his tetanus shot today will give him some more bute at dinner tonight and in the morning will see how the leg is its still quite swollen today so if it hasn't gone down tomorrow morning I'm getting the vets out. he probably needs some antibiotics I'm thinking. At least he is happy and walking around while he is on the bute.... his limp is not as bad so I think that is helping with the pulse see how he is tonight and tomorrow.

Oh poor Smartie
default_sad.png
I hope he feels better soon. Give him plenty of cold hoses Cassie and together with the bute he should pick up, good idea to get the vet to take a look though just in case.

Sending prayers

Renee- I shall find my thread and post a pic or two today then
default_smile.png


Cassie- I am sorry about Smartie! I am hoping he is already feeling better at least a little bit!

Suzie is such a pretty girl. I don't know how you were able to clip her head. Mine never stood still last year so I didn't follow through, this year I will have to try a little harder!

Thanks everyone,

haha Anna I'm hoping so LOL gave her tail a wash in a new whitening shampoo if it has done its job by lunch I'll do her mane... her coat is really good and I won't need to wash it till 2 days before the show but I'm wanting to get those tones out of her mane and tail so I might be washing that every 2nd day I think.

Smartie is feeling much better this morning
default_smile.png
I couldn't find a pulse in his leg which is fantastic, I moved him to a different paddock and he was all spirited looking around and neighing lol his leg is still a little swollen which worries me but I think it has gone down... a few more days on his medicine and I think he should be good to go
