More Mac pictures.... [Oct. 3rd, 2007|10:30 pm]
[Current Mood |calm]

Of most interest to horse people, probably.  First, the first shot I got when he stopped trotting--full weight on the right fore, the worse front leg (note bandages have loose ends.)


Next, notice the spread of the front legs--he's not hurting.  That's not a head-bob of lameness, he was about to sniff at the bottom of that gate.  It was a relaxed, easy, slouchy walk, something I haven't seen for awhile.

An hour or so later, I'd managed to stick down the loose end of the near fore's bandage (which I'd seen him step on and stumble) with green Vetwrap...he's walking briskly back and forth, because Illusion went out of sight at the far end of the north horse lot, and Mac wants him back.  Whinnying did not work.  He's showing no concern for that right fore and is about to put weight on it confidently.

Finally, he posed at the corner of the south paddock, where he was still trying to see Illusion; if he'd squared up his hindquarters it'd be a perfect glamour shot.

He looks great - alert and content and not at all in pain.

Apropos of Nothing

But my daughter Caroline (4) has been having a blast looking at the photos. She is a horse nut.

to puppetmaker40: Are those puppets or dolls and did you make them? They're adorable. I especially like the Snapey one on the right. Dumbledore looks a little like Santa in Rudolf, if that is indeed he on the left.

Congratulations that things are going well. I'm glad to hear he's feeling better.

In the previous pictures, Illusion looks like a proper handful at that.
