Thank you for the kind 'get well soon' messages for Echo - she is doing much better now. She is very much enjoying the extra food required for the medication to be administered, combined with the lack of work! She was quite full of herself yesterday!
Things seem to be improving - she's much more solid now, thanks to the drugs, so we will see what the results of the tests say about the cause. I am missing the riding, but as I'm back in the thick of it at work now, the extra time is quite welcome.
I'll update further when I have the results from the vet. I am also hoping the farrier will shoe her tomorrow - he refused to do her on Friday, in case she covered him in pooh - what a lightweight! No, I can understand that - I'm sure I wouldn't want to risk spending to long by her back end at the end of last week, although having said that, I don't think I've ever washed a horse's tail so many times in a week! I have had to start using a baby shampoo, as I didn't want to harm her tail with my usual 'super strength' brand!
