We're going to the vet for a check up today. I am hoping Dr. Tolley says I can quit wrapping it as everything is firm with no soft tissue showing. No biggie if not. It's an easy wrap job, and from experience, I know that if I stay the course, this will heal up before I know it.
While I am there, I want to talk about helping one of the families who was affected by Monday's dramatic fires. I've heard that 23 horses died in the Cottonwood fire, and only one survived. That one is owned by Martha and Manuel Carillo. The horse was treated by Dr. Gonzalez, but the owners are not in a financial position to pay the bill. I am hoping BVH will let me make a payment toward their bill.
While my own vet bills have piled up this year, I have been blessed with the means to pay them. It wouldn't hurt to help someone else do the same. If you're local and want to help, BVH can be reached at 661-203-6365.
