The cut was quite clean so I gave it a hose and put some black powder on it. When I came up the next day it wasn’t as fresh looking but wasn’t showing signs of infection so I did the same again. Knowing Coco though, I decided it might be a good idea to keep her in for a day to give the wound a chance to close up. Lame or not, if Coco’s feeling the mood nothing will stop her from tearing around the field. Roll on Monday morning and I received a call during work from my yard manager – Coco’s leg had blown up and become very puffy below the cut so we decided it was best to call the vet in. Thankfully my yard is only 10 minutes down the road from work so I was able to leave work to meet the vet when he got there.
