Had little ones teeth done today by vet, and Eille-one of her tooth has broken off-fractured off so it could be left to see if it comes out fully, but vet said sometimes if left it can cause infections that go into the sinus, so she has advised she goes to cots hosptail to have it removed
I have bad memories as last time I was there 2015 ollie got PTS as they found he had major problems in his mouth, something that was meant to be simple turned out to be life changing for me and the end of ollies life.
so I AM a bit fearful
also means they will both have to go and sunshine wouldn't cope without ella
and we will have to hire a little horse lorry and usally Id ring my mum, but she died in feb just gone, and I really felt it, not being able to ring her
I am feeling a lot better in how I am looking at this- as in its not the same as that what happened to ollie ellas havng things done to stop problems stop any infections.
ella wasn't as good this time with the injection with sadation- so I came up with brushing her mane at the same time as the vet put in the injection, as I know with us humans brains, the brain can not concerntrate on two things at the same time, and I thought , could it be the same for a horse, and it turned out ,it is
she didn't know she had the jab as her mane was being brushed at the same time-it worked!!
sunshine the first one in video as you can see had no problems in having anything done and she is the more nervous of the two
sunshine and ella has had their teeth done before, it wasn't their first time but this time ella was more difficult, maybe because of that one tooth?
ella was hand reared not by us by her breeders,so she has no flight instinct in her so she fights anything she doesnt like,and she maybe little but she is still very strong but the mane brushing worked.
Ella's going to hosptail on Tuesday, Iam dreading it, we were going to take sunshine with ella but we have decied against it, I am borrowing my neighbours horse to keep sunshine company while ella's at the hosptail. I can't cope with going with ella, too many bad memories of ollie going into the same hosptail and not coming back home. I wont be able to cope emotionally. too upsetting,so I am not going,its not good for my health getting upset
I will be bitting my nails though waiting for news about ella and wont rest until she is back home safe and sound. and hoping sunshine will be alright with just the company of neighbours old horse, I am not putting the neighbours horse with her but along side her in another area, so she hopfully will not feel so alone without ella
