And So Begins This Week..................



Mina lounging behind me as usual....................



My goofy Stephen came out with me this morning, wearing my winter hat backwards............Is there any other way ? Actually I asked Steve to help me this morning so that I could recheck Kola's hoof this morning because....................



This is what pulled from her rear right hoof last night. And Zoe claims to not like the horses ( I think sh'e fooling me) because she noticed Kola standing oddly. So at evening's feed, I decided to pick feet out while they were eating. I think we got lucky, because & naturally, it was the last hoof I picked, she must have just picked it up..........the rounded end in the crevace next to the frog and the hook just up against the fleshy part of her heel. I was hesitant at first, but completely packed in mud, I went for it. Glad I did as I believe we have no damage. It came out easily & I cold hosed it afterward to get a closer look and I couldn't see any punctures or bleeding or damage & it didn't seem tender........



None too worse for the wear and of course Misty bit me reaching for hay, she's been a little naughty these days.............Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!


And yes, my foot after I wiped most of it out as I rechecked Kola's hoof this morning, my boot got stuck in the mud, I nearly toppled over and landed bear footed in the bloody darned mud.......Uck!

Where would that hook have come from?
Glad that your girl's okay, that could have been bad.

The hook, Zoe actually identified as the end of a on old bungie cord. I have no idea, but it's all mud and things turn up that have been burried for years. I'm lucky I caught it right away. Shortly, I'll move the horses and goats and ask our farmer neighbor to scrape the crap and mud, he likes it for fertilizer on his fields. I've noticed a lot of field stone turning up lately and when I see those, I grab them and pull them out, but this one I didn't see coming.
