|She came out of the darkness when she saw the car pull up and stood at the gate, waiting for me.|
She followed me around with ears pricked and sparkling eyes. The dullness from the last couple of days had disappeared.
The run-in has its own storage area where us field boarders keep our feed and miscellaneous grooming supplies. I went in there to mix up some feed for Lily. When I opened the door, she was right outside waiting for me.
I took her out of the field and let her eat her grain+forage while I checked her over. Her temperature was 100.4, still well within the normal range. She was warm and comfortable under her midweight blanket-no sweating. It was 33 degrees at 7:30 pm.
Her front legs were completely back to normal - no fill at all. Her hinds weren't quite back to normal, but they were better than the day before.
|It was good to see her eating with this happy expression again: ears pricked.|
It was good to see her looking so much better today as I don't know if I'll be able to make it out tomorrow. We're supposed to get snow that is going to turn into ice by the evening. If there's ice on the road, I won't be driving the half hour to the barn after work tomorrow, but I will certainly go out on Monday.
On the way home in the dark, it was nice to realize that the roads had already been salted in preparation for tomorrow's bad weather.
Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts!! :)
