I don't know how this could be a virus. Nobody has been anywhere. Unless Luc is carrying something. They were just introduced to each other a couple weeks ago. Maybe he just has some irritation from pollen or hay or something...
I didn't take his vitals (need to buy a thermometer) but he seems happy and spunky and is eating well, so that's good.
I talked to the vet & she thought he could wait until Monday to be seen. I may or may not take him in, depending on his demeanor. If he stays bright and happy I might just wait and see if his immune system can kick this. If he doesn't, I'll probably take him to a vet with a scope so they can see if there's a foreign body.
So we are going to be way behind in this horsemanship challenge. Oh well, I have plenty of other equines to play with! Wish the challenge didn't include riding, because he's my only rideable one.
Today Luc and I might work on trailer loading. I'm excited to make him my priority today. He is special. Like Tonka, maybe... I don't want to speak too soon about that, but he makes me laugh, and he's so bright eyed and eager to play. I can't quite put words to it, but he has something inside that reminds me of my Tonka, and makes me happy. Maybe a clownish nature, with a desire to connect.
This is just a picture from my walk yesterday. Love the green!
