Coyote is doing better!


We are going to Bradenton this weekend to work again on training and riding. I can't wait!

Coyote is doing well, so far so good. I am starting to work with him again, after two months of not being touched and being handled by different people, he is a bit wild. But we are slowly making progress. He just seems to be one of those grumpy, sour horses who don't like people and/or anyone in their space. My gut feeling is that he will take some time to habituate to people and start tolerating them.

Weather is weird. Cool at night, hot during the day.

We are working on renovating our bathroom. It is almost completely gutted and waiting for that new hurricane impact window, stained concrete floors and other magic. This weekend will be lots of work.

Horse update

We have decided to seek 2nd opinions on both our horses. Coyote is not getting better and this Friday we will be in Ocala seeing vets more interested. We will be seeing Peterson and Smith in Ocala, FL.

Weather has been funny here in Palm Beach, cold front in April??? This morning it temps were actually down in the 40s?!

Garden is doing alright. I am really worried about my little man Coyote, don't want him to be put down over such a stupid thing as wound infection.

Coyote is back home

So, my horse is home again. He is on two antibiotics, one of which we squirt into his behind with a big syringe. He is a sport about it and does not complain. His face is still swollen but Dacia said yesterday that there is less pus coming out of the wound. I guess his diagnosis right now is infection of the bone. I am considering doing some hyperbaric chamber treatments, they are expensive but apparently helpful (I am grasping at straws here). Dr. Casas is coming out to check on him tomorrow. We also have a natural hoof care farrier coming out tomorrow. Coyote has also started working with the saddle on - he is doing fine and being the nice guy he is....
