Not much to new going on here with Cassie and she has had a pretty easy winter. I've been busy with a new job that I started the end of November so I only get to see her and Eli on the weekends. 
On Sunday I took a friend and new coworker and her two daughters (ages 14 and 11) down to meet the horses. I got Cassie out for them to sit on. She just soaked up the attention. (I think the girls are hooked [smile] [wink]

Hope everyone is having a good winter.

Friday we moved Cassie and my gelding Eli to the farm with Suds and Jewel. It was a very uneventful trip. Neither one had been in a trailer in about 2 years so I was very happy when the both loaded up in under 10 min. [smile] I'm adding some pictures from that day and some videos of the progression over the weekend. 
My mom Krista K. put them all together today and again its been pretty uneventful but I wanted to share it all with everyone.

Just a quick update on Cassie. 
WARNING! (Sorry this is going to be a bit of nasty detail update.)

About 4.5 weeks ago now she caught her left nostril on something somewhere in the pasture (no blood, hair or anything to be found anywhere), and got a pretty good wound from it. 

She pretty much sliced clean through and disconnected about half of her nostril from her upper lip. I guess I should say luckily it was still connected by a small piece of skin/muscle/cartilage from the top part of her nose. Of course she did this after hours so we had to have our vet out for an after hours emergency visit. 

2.5 hours, 7 suture packages, 3 weeks on antibiotics and stall rest to keep her away from the other horses, and $650 in vet bills, we got her healed up pretty good and her nose looking somewhat normal. 

Now the sutures did the job they needed to do and about 75% of the flap did reattach, but She did have about a 1.5 inches of the tip of the flap die off so she will end up having a little bit of a dent on the tip of her nose. Other then a small scar on the inside and outside of her nostril we shouldn't know it ever happened in a few months. 

It always surprises me at how well horses heal. I will post pictures of the progress of the wound in the treating large open wounds form. Mostly because its pretty nasty looking. I took before and after pictures the day the vet was there then 1x a week every week after so far. So as soon as I can I'll update that forum as well. 

Cassie has had no side effects from this and is doing great and is now back with all of her buddies. (I think she may have liked the attention a little bit with the 2x a day feedings needed to get her meds in [wink])
