Diaries of an Injured Moose & a Cute Filly

Sierra finally drove me nuts enough to kick her out into the pasture and within a week she had injured herself.  In natural mare fashion, she was stoic as heck and didn't show any lameness.  Admittedly, I didn't even find it until after I rode because I just gave her a super quick brush because we were pressed for time.  Once discovering it, I decided to give her time off to heal.  It didn't hit anything of importance luckily, but I want to stay on top of it's healing. She's locked back up in a paddock and the wound itself is about 60% healed but we're still dealing with some swelling.  Life has been absolute insanity lately so I am very behind in blog land, so here's a quiet Friday post to keep things moving until I have some decent content to share.

I swear she's taking her time healing because she's loving all the extra snuggles and hand grazing

Our last ride before discovering the injury

A lovely hole ..

05/23/19 - The 'hole' is gone and it's just a surface wound now, but we are still dealing with some swelling and hair loss

Looking fantastic but would still like to see more weight on her
