    Default Jingles needed for good old mare

    Since last week the 34 year old retired lesson horse has been limping pretty badly. We assumed it was an abscess as she had one and was moving like this about a year ago. But, even with soaking it and trying to get the abscess to come out, it still hasn't and even our farrier isn't looking too hopeful. Bute doesn't make her any more comfortable either. Her other 3 legs can't support her weight as she has arthritis and standing still makes it much worse. Not looking good for our sweet old girl.

    Any and all jingles for dear Miss Dolly would be appreciated!

    Sending jingles for the old girl. This might be one instance where I would let a vet/farrier do a little testing/digging to try to get it to drain to give her some relief.

    I'm not sure if I grew out of stupid or ran out of brave.

    Update: Still soaking her foot and trying to keep her comfortable. No improvements in her condition, but not any worse either. Keep jingling for our sweet old girl!

    It maybe time to get the vet out for some x-rays. To make sure it is an abcess, and drained, and not a fracture or some other injury. Still Jingling in Texas.

    Jingles!!!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Jingles for the geriatric! Here's hoping it's just a nasty abcess.
