Vet Work

Part of getting ready for horse show season is making sure the Coggins Forms are up to date. This is a test for Equine Infectious Anemia that all shows require.
It involves drawing a blood sample, filling out the paperwork, and getting it to the state lab. At least I only have to go through this once a year and don't have to make an appointment.
I noticed this wound on Jessica a few days ago. It is still pretty swollen but healing. When it first happened it looked like a bite wound. That same day I saw a baby fox running down the driveway when I came in from work. I realized that their rabies vaccines are a little behind so I've had the Tech at work order some for me. (we use a different kind for the dogs and cats). It's hard to keep up with everything...the cobbler's children have no shoes, the vet's pets have no shots.

I am so far behind, I actually think I am ahead because on the farm it's a cycle that seems to repeat itself. Beautiful horse.
