99%


Java is OK!  Java was almost good as new Saturday, and all swelling has been gone for over 24 hours.  Of course every idea of what awful things could be wrong ran through my head, but before I could really freak myself out, she is 99% sound.  Yay Java.  See why I love her?  She fixed herself (with the help of the farrier, but pretty darn good).  I guess it was something to do with the white line area of that hoof (yes, i know my proper hoof terminology is lacking), pressure from that one spot the farrier saw, or a bruise.  Nothing burst that I saw (and I've been looking), and she got better within 24 hours with some hoof soreness at her heel, that it's hard to say what exactly it was.  When we go out next, I'll be riding with hoof boots on (Boa) her fronts for the next bunch of trail rides to be sure in case she is still ouchy.

Glad Java's better - she seems to get over things well, which is a great horse to have!

We are almost in the clear too. Scout still has a bit of swelling under his knee, but he's galavanting around just fine.
I guess I might owe you some cookies?! Your horse healed faster!

OK, now I'm getting worried. Is Java OK? Are you OK?
