So she given some Finadyne and brought into the barn to rest. Initially I kept in her dam ( Holly ), Lady Gaga and Snooty Boots for company. However, Holly and Gaga did not prove themselves to be very sympathetic, and I could see that Gaga was assessing her chances of achieving a limbo under the rails. Hence a change of companions; Sophie, as her best friend was an obvious choice, and Poppet as the most chilled youngster ever, seemed the other perfect choice.
They have been inside for nearly a week now and are surprisingly happy. Luckily the barn is very open and they can see out in all directions. A thick straw bed, plenty of carrots and persistent rain outside seems to be making the option a pleasant one. However, Finesse's lameness hasn't improved. When I say lameness, I mean that she won't put her foot down at all. She had been seen by the vet who could find nothing on examination so it was decided an x-ray was required. Thankfully no fractures were found. It would appear that she has bruised her stifle area. She is definitely her mother's daughter....Holly thinks herself pretty precious too!
