Talked to several boarding stable owners today, vets and other people in related businesses. I am beginning to get a better idea of what services are included in most boarding agreements as far as reasonable care and what is beyond that and is done only on a fee basis.
Kylie and I spent another two hours tonight trying to figure out how to help one of the horses boarding with us. This included a trip to the store and a couple of different strategies to find something that worked.
When we left it looked like we managed to secure the incision area enough to prevent dirt from coming in contact with it and keeping a very soft muzzle from removing it. I hope it works tonight and we can get through the next few days until the vet returns without it becoming contaminated.
I feel there is a purpose for this stable that hasn't come to fruition yet and it is going to be to the benefit of horses in a special way.
