I turned Speedy out for a good roll and drink like I always do, and then I puttered around returning all my tack to its rightful place. I set up the sprinklers, sat in the shade for a few minutes checking Facebook, and then went and brought Speedy back to his stall.
When I finally when to get Izzy, a good thirty of forty minutes had passed. Like I always do, I gave his body a visual scan to check for booboos or bites or anything that might need to be doctored. When my eyes landed on his leg, I saw a little blood seepage.
I took him over to the wash rack to hose it clean. After it had softened up a little, I was able to pick off the stuck on dirt and hay to reveal a very different looking wound than the one I had left that morning. While it still doesn't look as good as it did the day the bandages came off, I think this is an improvement.
Now the wound looks bumpy and rough, and it did fill the day after the scab fell off, but by the next day the filling was gone. My guess is that it has another month of healing.
I'll keep you posted.
