Stall Rest Chronicles 27 March, 24/7

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

Third month post surgery
Two weeks at clinic DONE
Four weeks of at-home stall rest DONE
Four weeks of paddock rest DONE
Starting week 3 of four weeks pasture rest

Aaaaaaand they’re out.

As of Wednesday evening, Milton and Rodney are living the pasture life.

They were out together Wednesday during the day, as they have been. After dinner, we – once again – put on our big people’s panties and turned them out for the night.

No problem.

Two tired ponies the next day. All night partying can take it out of you.

As of Sunday, they have been out four nights, including one storm.

So, they live out. Except for stall separation at breakfast and dinner. And lunch maybe. And if they want to come into the run-in for shade. Or shelter. Or a nap.

But hardy pasture potatoes the rest of the time.
