10-10-12 Romeo Update

Tendon injury is looking better.  Right front leg has a goose-egg on it on the canon bone, and so I've been cold hosing and doctoring it as well.  Now, I'm learning that Mo's skin doesn't enjoy being wrapped all the time, or damp and wrapped.  Doctoring for what appears to be scratches will begin this evening.  All the dampness, combined with cling wrap, sealing in the moisture, has NOT made the leg hair or skin happy at all..

Had a colic scare Saturday night, but resolved it with some banamine and a trailer ride to "shake it loose".  Easily resolved, and he's back on his normal grain and hay starting this evening.  Should make him incredibly happy.
