Stall Rest Chronicles 28 Feb, Signs of Spring So Soon?

Explanation. We have a horse on stall rest following colic surgery. This has taken over the blog. Mostly. [Begin, Phase III]

Ninth week post surgery
Two weeks at clinic DONE
Four weeks of at-home stall rest DONE
Two weeks of paddock rest DONE
Starting week 3 of four weeks of paddock rest
Still to go, four weeks pasture rest


In February?!

Had to turn on the stall fan. Not quite as bad as it sounds. Stall is better at keeping inhabitant warm in winter than cool in summer – glad we are not doing this in July – and Milton will start sweating on days that don’t seem all that hot to me. Milton is not the heat-loving lizard that Rodney is. Or that I am.


This has me concerned about summer, which already gets ridiculously hot.

Plus, once it is hot enough for fans, then flies and fleas are not far behind. #animallife
