Today, two weeks after her stifle surgery, Tiffany got her bandages taken off and her stitches removed. She also got a spiff-up haircut in honor of the occasion--I figure there's no reason for her to stop looking like the barn's princess just because she's confined TO the barn during her recovery period.
So far, she's taking the stall confinement pretty well. She has plenty of hay to eat, horse toys, a daily supply of treat apple slices (fed in a bucket, not by hand--just too easy to spoil a confined horse the way it is), plus a south-facing window, and horse friends next door.
As I keep telling her, plenty of horses have it worse in the middle of a cold, wet winter.
