My New Least Favorite Thing

Maybe not least favorite, but I certainly didn’t like doing this:


and then having to do this:


Starlet got cut a few weeks ago, and I’m in charge of caring for the wound while Tia is out of town. She’s healing OK, at least I think so since Tia isn’t that worried, but to try and reduce the amount of scarring and help healing, we have some cream to spread on the wound every day.

And I get to do it.

I did it yesterday for the first time, and was nervous since Starlet is a nervous horse. As I dropped hay, she was jumping and bucking around since the other horses wouldn’t let her eat. It certainly seemed like a bad idea to go get close to her and spread cream.

After 5 minutes or so, however, she calmed down and it wasn’t bad. I was nervous, but nothing happened. The same thing this morning.

Horsey-vet Steve is in the house.
