Looking Around, Where’s Waldo?

Horsekeeping

 

You may have noticed that the blog has been Milton-centric lately. Nothing nefarious. Rodney is fine. Rodney is out standing in his field. Rodney is taking foreeeeeeeeeeeeeeever to get over the world’s mildest lameness.

Seriously, we once went to look at a sales horse who was more off than this. He was sold shortly thereafter. The seller smugly informed us that the vet passed the horse as sound. Whatever. That’s when we stopped saying what we thought of other people’s horses [Note to Horse Sellers]. That says something about horse trading. That also says something about the minuteness of Rodney’s current boo-boo.

He has a pronounced bump on the outside of his right front fetlock down by the coronet band. He takes the occasional bad step on a small circle on a lunge line at a trot to the right. He is spookier than he should be for the given temperature and activity level. Just enough to put him on the Injured Reserve list.

Rodney takes six weeks to get over anything. It is what it is. Sigh.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
