A scheduled day off for some dental work for the horse left me with this day off work, and an unexpected snow day left me in the company of Miss K and her friend Miss A.
We had a cold morning waiting for the vet to come out and vaccinate/float Mia's teeth. He sedated her pretty heavily for the dental procedure, but she still put up a decent fight of her own trying to get him out of her mouth. This is the first time I had seen how they floated teeth on a horse, and I will say it was interesting. (I could do without the sound though!) The vet discovered that she has some "waves" on the tops of her teeth, so I will have to be a better Momma about having her teeth done in the future. Oops!
Of course, as he was finishing up with Mia, we noticed she had a swollen rear leg because of a minor laceration she got from doing Lord knows what. I have a feeling she was being anti-social with another horse, kicked out and cut herself... She doesn't want to talk about such things. With horses, it seems it's always one thing or another.
I forgot how much I missed unexpected "snow days"!
