    Default Little Lily went to Devon!

    Well, she had a long day of 1sts.

    1st- bath, braid, night away from home, show, different handler, and 1st illness.

    She was cranky all day and just not herself. She usually stands really well but it was Devon after all and I figured that she was just over whelmed.

    We got a 5th out of (I think) 9. She had a great walk but didn't stand so well.

    One really cute thing was one of the judges was looking at the foal next to us and he turned and looked at Lily and smiled. Well, she saw him smile at her and sort of whinney/nickered to him like "hi judge" and he laughed at her and said she's saying "hi to me". Very cute, very Lily.

    The rest of the time not really her happy self. More cranky than I have ever seen her.

    Took her home and heard her cough but she was eating some of moms grain so I thought went down wrong. I kept in the back of my head and this morning I took her temp and it was 103.8.

    My little Lilly is sick. I think she was starting to feel ill at Devon and was showing it by being cranky.

    Vet came out, took blood, gave banamine and put her on Naxcel. We will get results back tomorrow. I'm hoping for a virus and not bacterial.

    Anyway, here is the link to some photos. She looked lovely I wish she had felt better.

    Yes, we even braided her tail. She was really good to braid. I've been practicing braiding her in the field so it wouldn't be a big deal.

    I will say that it had A LOT of quick braid in it. That should be in their advertising, "it will even hold your foal's tail braid in".

    Well, this morning her temp is 102 without banamine and she's bouncing around the stall. She never really got punky, just cranky.

    Thanks everyone for your compliments and good thoughts for her recovery.

    I think we are WELL on the road to recovery.
