Late Night Vet


Once again, we had a late night vet visit. Starlet, our 4th horse, cut herself somehow yesterday in the storm. It was a bad cut, and we needed the vet. He didn’t arrive until after 10, and Kendall wanted to go see and help. She did, as you can see, holding the tail so the vet could clean the wound, apply Lidocaine and then start stitching. At that point. Kendall and I headed for bed, around 11:30.

Fortunately it looks like the horse will be OK, although we need to manage infection and healing for a week or so until the wound closes up.
