A positive update on the rescue mare

The mare somehow unwrapped her whole leg yesterday.

She must have done it the past night because it looked much dryer, and
frankly, it looked MUCH better. She was walking better and seemed happier.

I wasn't sure and still feel a bit uncertain, but I am leaving it upwrapped in that
area for now and seeing what takes place.

Maybe things do look "darkest before the dawn" in such cases as this



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
