Colours under the Weather


Better Again

During the snow, Mr Colours was poorly and made us all panic, Mr C convinced himself and all at Sparhanger that he had broken his leg. His stable wasn’t disturbed but he wouldn’t put weight through his near hind leg, there was swelling just below the hock and he was very reluctant to move, and most convincing of all he hadn’t eaten his haylage,  (this means he is near death’s door!). The vet was called and we all waited, going through tissues at an alarming rate.

The outcome was lymphangitis and with a course of antibiotics and some pain killers Mr C was back to normal, the reason why he had lymphangitis is still debatable, Michelle thinks it may have had something to do with not being able to exercise due to the weather conditions. Colours being the brave hero that he is alerted us to his discomfort at a very early stage allowing us to get the right treatment before his legs became too filled and by the very next morning he had forgotten all about it.

The snow has all gone and we’re managing to get back to some kind of normality, rides have started and hopefully Pony Club will be back on, on Tuesday.


Some of the horses had a fun time playing in the snow.
