By Thursday night (2 days ago) Prize’s left foot felt better but she wasn’t able to use her right foot well at all. She was almost three legged. It was very sad. She was angry about being inside but couldn’t move very well at all. I called a farrier friend of mine to see what the latest and greatest founder treatments were since I don’t do horses most of the time.

She recommended a special kind of boot to pad her feet. I ordered them yesterday and got them today. Of course when I got to the barn she was feeling better than ever. I accused her of feeling better as soon as the boot supplier swiped my credit card! But the barn owner said that she had been pretty sore this morning before her banamine.

She was a very good sport about putting on her boots. I expected her to have a fit so I had in her the arena. They are padded enough that she is about an inch taller.


She walked off sound immediately. The barn owner and I watched her for a while. Then he noted that the boots were going to fall off. I said that I hadn’t velcroed them on very tightly. It took us a bit to realize what we were seeing. She was trotting. Two days ago she couldn’t walk and now she was sound at the trot. Pretty cool. Of course, we’ll need to she how she does when she isn’t high on pain meds.

They aren’t very pretty. Everyone keeps commenting on that. I threatened to get pink glitter pen and decorate them in a pretty princess style.

  1. Whether we admire it or not, previous in our lives, we would obligate to carry out term papers and other written assignment. It is definitely not easy but very charismatic to produce a investigate about prize’s new shoes. To do that, you need to read a range of articles and books, or you can just order some kind of work and then use online plagiarism made by and save your time like some quick help with the American Dream.

  2. It’s been a while since I’ve had time to stop by, so glad I got to see Prize in her shoes – nothing wrong with basic black. But a girl can never have enough shoes, can she?

  3. After a morning of looking at slippers they look like fancy slippers to me. Glad to hear she’s doing a bit better, even if it is the pain meds. Hey now that she has slippers the next thing you know she’ll be wanting a quilt.

  4. Yeah! I’m so glad to hear that she is recovering!!! I’ve been holding my breath every time I hit the link to your blog lately…

  5. She has been laying down a lot in a heavily bedded stall. We were picking on her today about how dirty she was. I was threatening to give her a bath. Even her forehead is dusty!

  6. Good Lord…Prize is…well…I will go for the soft phrase of husky. She looks great (minus that she cannot walk without pain unless drugged). I cannot belive that is her though…what happened to the copper penny coat? I have worked for several people who have foundered horse and NONE have ever trotted even a month afterwards. I wonder what is up with Prize! Leave it to her to channel Spirit and become a total pain!
