Quote4the day: time is a healer and to heal takes time..
Fact4the day: abscess is the reaction produced by the body in attempting to overcome a local infection. Initially a swelling developing under the skin, early stages hot and painful which becomes harder. It matures the swelling becomes more discrete and centre becomes softer and cooler. Eventually erupting. This can take 2 to 7 days. Early stages horses tend to be off colour.
Thought 4the day: To heal now this can mean physically and mentally as some come here physically well but mentally can be scarred. It can be from anything not just abuse but severe trauma. The old saying that time is a healer is the answer. Some horses simple need to be left to become horses again and in time things change where as others just become a great field companion and a wonderful lawnmower :o)
