It was actually nice here today. Mild, sunny and pleasant until I went to feed the crew this evening and found Raven hobbling along on 3.5 legs. There is a puncture wound on the inside of her right hock, and it's swollen up like half a softball. She was just fine this morning, but I think she might have been jealous of all the attention that Brego is getting. The site is hot to the touch and she's only putting weight on the toe. I hosed it down for 20 minutes tonight, and we'll try to get the vet out on an emergency call tomorrow. Someone on the local horse boards recently had to have their gelding put down due to a similar injury, so I won't be sleeping well tonight.
