I had grand plans for the weekend. I was going to have a lesson on Saturday and then Sunday we were going to go for a trail ride since the weather was going to be amazing. Stinker decided to poop all over those by getting not one, but two abscesses in the same foot.
Friday I was going to drive him, since that seems to help him have a more relaxed ride the next day. Except as soon as I asked him to trot he was super super lame. I did jog him long enough to get a reading on the equisense, but that was it. Since he had been fine the day before I crossed my fingers for an abscess and texted trainer to cancel the lesson and the farrier to see if he could come out on Monday if things weren't better by then.
The farrier cautioned me that it could take a few days for things to show up and made plans for Monday. I was hopeful that Stinker would follow his standard pattern of not showing any symptoms until right before the abscess blew. In the past he would be super lame for 24 or less hours and then it would blow and he would be back to walking normally.
Sure enough Saturday there was pus oozing, but he was still acting super lame and I was getting a little worried. But Sunday morning there was more pus from a second spot and he was back to walking normally. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that everything heals up quickly and without complications.
