Non-hoof related injury

(Buttercup enjoying a few minutes of grass at her new place prior to her injury)

While refreshing to not talk about hooves, this new injury certainly wasn't a good thing!

Buttercup arrived June 1 at her new barn outside Charleston. On June 3, barn management discovered a gruesome injury during morning feeding. Everything is fine and it appears to just be a flesh wound (Thank goodness!).

She's been on stall rest the last week and has another week of stall rest before she goes out in her own individual paddock, since the injury is suspected to be from a pasturemate.

Day 1 injury:

Day 6: (all cleaned up!)
