I gave Lilly a bath today. She's pretty clean already from being in the stall but since she's been shedding so much I thought she could use a nice, warm bath.
Something I've always noticed but never really pointed out, is how she has specks all over her neck and chest. It isn't noticeable unless she's wet, but then they really stand out. There are light colored ones and dark colored ones that look black.
It looks like she has mottled skin, but I can't seem to find much information about it on Paint horses, just Appys.
Her tendon is still swollen, but I believe it is slightly less swollen than yesterday. Wishful thinking maybe, but I'll take what I can get!
After her bath, I turned her out to eat some grass while I cleaned her stall and refilled her water. I happened to glance out at her and saw her rolling around. I tried to get my camera but it takes FOREVER to turn on and get ready to take a picture. By that time, she was done rolling and bucking but was still running around a bit.
She hasn't been turned out in the pasture yet. I haven't been able to get ahold of the BO so she's still on stall rest. I think I'd rather she stay in for a bit longer anyway. When she was playing around she was still quite gimpy.
She sure was enjoying herself, though!
