I put together this little side by side comparison, and although I don't seem to have a good "after" picture, the difference is quite impressive!

In other Lilly news, I've been keeping an eye on her hoof. The most recent abscess has wreaked havoc on her hoof and things seem to be looking worse the more it grows out.
|Holy crater, Batman!|
For now she's in the stall where it's dry and clean, but I'm worried about what could happen when/if she gets the okay to go back outside. Could bacteria crawl in there and start this whole process all over again, or should she be okay? Maybe I should be squirting something in there?
Her last abscess came out in the soft tissue area of her hoof but this one came out right at the coronary band and did some damage to her hoof. I've seen some images online that have me quite worried that this could turn into Lilly's next "issue" as it continues to grow out.
I'll have my vet look at it on Thursday when she does the ultrasound, and luckily my farrier is coming out on Friday, so I'll have both of my horse care people around next week in case we need to do something specific.
I'm still trying to decide what to do about AJ. Everyone I talk to about it says moving him to Michigan sounds like a great idea, but when I was loving on him this morning I tried to imagine days without my Boo Pony, Boo Bear... he's just so sweet.
