Stitches for Phoenix

While the mares were playing out in the fields on Friday , the weather took a turn for rain. Our horses are a bit on the soft side and if possible they don’t do rain especially the girls, (well, that’s not true, the boys are just as bad).

Michelle was unable to get them in straight away as everyone was busy doing photos for a BHS manual, so they showed their disgust by galloping around the field and in doing so Phoenix got caught by a kick. Luckily she was found almost as soon as it had happened. It was obvious that it could do with a couple of stitches so while we were waiting for the vet we washed it out using cold water from the hose pipe.

Phoenix is now all stitched and bandaged up and is not allowed any play time in the field until the stitches come out in 10 days time! Chloe is giving her lots of love and was probably more upset by it all than Phoenix, Chloe even stayed to hold Phoenix hand/hoof instead of a hot date with her boyfriend.
