Update on Dixie.

I'm so excited to say that Dixie, the 23 year old horse at the barn who was VERY lame, is feeling a lot better.

The swelling has gone down a lot,  and she is able to move more. She was stalled last night and the owner will start walking her in the barn tomorrow to build her strength on that lame side. The vet's are still saying it was indeed a clogged vessel and she should be 100% fine in a couple weeks. :) :) We were SO worried about her, especially since she's a lot older and has had some troubles with lameness before. It's great to hear that the "Grandma" of the barn is feeling better and will once again rule the roost soon!!!
