    Sam is almost back to normal, the swelling is barely noticeable now.....not sure it WAS pigeon fever. Thanksgiving.... I bought a lil butterball turkey, an 8 pounder, there's just two of us. I'll make the usual, traditional sides..... I don't do fancy, maybe if we're having company I'll get a little creative, but, not for just us.

    I would love to have a donkey, but, at this stage in my life, the animals I have now, are it.......I'm kinda over it, the horse part, anyway.....these two will live out their lives, then, no more.

    PD, I'm sorry to hear about your wife. I'm not really much on praying, but, I'm sure He will listen to me anyway. I'll say a little something for your wife.

    So, Pistol is a horse chaser. I thought he was on the front porch, but, my husband left the gate open and, Pistol ended up in the corral. First, he was just sniffing around and, they were sniffing him. Then, they started moving and, he started following, they went faster and, Pistol went faster, soon, they were running and, Pistol chasing. Out in the pasture, they stopped and Pistol was sniffing around their feet and, trying to grab onto Abby's tail as she swished. Now, I know the blow by blow because, my husband watched it all, he says it's like it unfolded like in slow motion. Pistol is lucky neither horse kicked out at him or, trampled him......he used to be afraid of the horses, I guess he isn't any more.

    We also went to tractor supply yesterday, not sure what the discount was, but, I guess it's still nice to be remembered.

    Sam's swelling has gone down considerably. I cold hosed him yesterday. He can now drop to urinate. I'm having doubts as to this being pigeon fever, I'm suspecting a bacterial infection, of a different kind. He has two more penicillin injections left....... since he didn't mind the cold water on his undercarriage, stood stock still, I'm going to attempt a sheath cleaning, even if only a partial. Since the swelling is going down, I don't see there's any danger of rupture.

    I use a shedding blade or, rubber curry, to brush out dried mud.... works great!

    If it was me, I'd be too uncomfortable being there, knowing I knew what her husband was contemplating, but she didn't.

    I would see the diagnosis of strep, as a reason to not go to work, fever or not.....you must really love your job.... I've never liked a job so much, I'd go in with strep. I think you're an anomaly.....lol..

    That's quite a collection. I'd like to see them displayed, when you get your shelving put in.

    That's a lot of good information. My barn floor is dirt, so, I'll have to be extra vigilant in keeping things clean as possible, I clean out the stall areas every day, getting rid of feces and dirty bedding, my husband put in a drain that funnels the urine out, there's no fly problem now, with the temps being lower, before long, everything will be covered in a blanket of snow, so, that will deter the bacteria.....I'm guessing, anyway. My fingers are crossed, there will be no ruptures, the vet did say that is a possibility, but, actually better if it does rupture and, release all the bad stuff. Sam's sheath seems to have loosened up some, for lack of a better word, yesterday it was so swollen, it was tight as a drum, this evening, it has some movement like, jiggling.....lol...for lack of another better word. Yes, my mare's name is Abby.

    Thanks Heidi, Sam is the same as he's always been, just looks weird. If the swollen areas do rupture, we'll have to separate the horses, which means, one won't have shelter for a while, I mentioned dividing the barn in half so both could still get in there, but still be apart, but, the vet said no, they have to be totally apart..... I can't do that, even with total separation, they will still have just a wire fence between them, at any given spot. I found a copy of, Smokey a Cow Horse, at a used bookstore, I remember reading it in the 4th grade, I also found another horse story by Zane Grey called, Scorpion, I bought it, too.........600 Breyer horses!!??
