Day 1 rehab


 Day 1 Saturday Dec 4

Home after an emotional tussle with loading on the float (her emotions, not mine). She travelled well, and was calling hello as she offloaded from the float. A quick hose down, and into the paddock with a late morning feed. A few hours later, we checked her again and gave her soaked hay (which she picked through but didn’t eat much of. Soaking wet hay is novel to her, so not surprised). Her morning feed was only 2/3rds eaten, and she was hanging around the water trough, sipping frequently, or walking as though relieving stiffness or pain, and returning after each “lap” to the water trough. Evening feed and she was looking much more de-stressed, and happy to hang out with the humans.
