Guess who's coming home today!

That's right, River is!!  I'm leaving work a little early and going to get him..  I probably won't get there until 7ish, so we won't get home until after 10pm.... and after I drop him off, I have to go another 20 minutes to return the truck and trailer and get my car, then drive half an hour home.  Yuck.

He's on stall rest for at least a month.  He's on an antibiotic for at least a month.  Three times a day for at least a month.  Three.  That's going to be a nightmare.  Sigh.

Naturally, he's on an antibiotic that is horribly expensive and has a ton of warnings for the human giving it...  Wear gloves, wear a mask, wear an apron or something you can take off immediately if you get any on it, use in a well-ventilated area...  You'd think he'd been prescribed anthrax or something.  Normally I would more or less ignore the warnings, but since there's no one to take care of him if I get sick from the medication.


  1. Yay! I hope everything goes smoothly.

  2. That medication sounds hard core! You should just invest in a hazmat suit.

    Glad your pony is coming home and that it's something treatable. I hope he feels better!

    1. I've become so lazy with it... at first I was all about wearing my gloves and not touching it... Now I don't bother with gloves and if a chunk is on the tube, I just scrape it off with my finger and stick it in his mouth.

  3. So exciting!! I hope this the medication get's him back on his feet, and by all means be careful! That stuff sound crazy strong.
