Vibes for Maisie please!

post #1 of 242
Thread Starter 
Last night I noticed that my Shetland mare, Maisie, was shivering, and I put it down to the appalling weather. I made their shelter all coosy and left them in it. But this morning she was not happy, and had a foot she would not put on the ground. It didn't seem swollen or hot, but by lunchtime she was not eating or letting Tartine suckle. So I called the vet and he took three hours to get here. Maisie really scared me by lying down with her head extended, making little whimpering noises. She really wanted petting too, which is still unusual as she is pretty wild most of the time. I spent the afternoon with my arms round her neck. Anyway the vet says she has a fever of unknown origin, though her foot seems fine, and she has had antibiotic and tetanus injections that I have to repeat tomorrow and Monday. She is now grazing in the field for the first time since this morning, so maybe she is feeling better. I am so paranoid about any of them now, so would welcome your vibes.

Thanks everyone. I spent a sleepless night and was out twice in the field in my dressing gown and wellies with a torch! It was a black, moonless night, but fortunately the rain seems to have stopped for the moment.

Anyway, this morning the news is good. Maisie is in the field grazing, and putting weight on all her feet. She will not let Tartine suckle yet though, and pushes or lightly kicks her away. I don't know if it is because it is time to stop her, or if she is feeling discomfort. Her teats seem normal - no signs of swelling or heat. Tartine is OK, she was only suckling a bit occasionally anyway and is eating and drinking well on her own now.

Now I have find someone who will hold her while I give her the next penicillin injection!

Glad to hear a good report! I'm glad to know the little one is eating on her own too.
