I could NOT stop crying earlier once it started it just kept happening all day, do realise he is not actually dying, spring will come (it WILL) but am so sick of it all. Abscesses are so so so painful, it is distressing to see. Plus my newest boots have started leaking, it really compounds the misery! I want to make a badge that says 'just don't ask' because it makes it worse when people are nice!
Oh darling! you aren't alone. I think we are all in the same boat to sme extent. Ours are all healthy, but going totally stir crazy. There's been a chance to ride recently, but it's been so long that when I opened the tack room (metal lorry container) last week, all the tack had an actual fur coat! Dd has totally lost her mojo, mooches round the yard like depression on legs. Yard owner has developed an RS injury in her shoulder from mucking out so much, because the paddocks are so crap they've been staying in longer. Hay is going faster than it should. Dds friend has been having a crap time and just mooches all the time, I've been working flat out till Xmas and have to been about to keep morale going. Just try and stay positive, this can't go on for ever. optimistic
Lol at Normal People and being pathetic is my job so stop butting in. I'm sure your boy will be ok, ours are all fed up as well and they haven't even got the excuse of being poorly. How long does an abcess take to burst? Will he feel more like eating after that?
