Today was a big day for our senior horse, Sweet William (aka Sheets). Our Sweet Will is beginning to put some weight on, still on the thin side but looking so much better. So, ... today he is strong and healthy enough to have his his teeth floated. Hopefully, he this will help him be able to chew more efficiently and use his feed to get the nutrients he so desperately needs. He's looking so much better but still has a way to go. As Will feels better his true personality is coming thru which is always good! On the down side, Sweet Will's vet did find and confirm that he does have a melanoma inside his mouth, also on his sheaf and on the underside of his tail. Bottom line, Will is feisty, much more energetic and very sure of what he wants!
So here are a few pics of our boy having his teeth floated. He recovered very quickly from the anesthesia and he was munching on his mushy grains at lunch time, (above pic). I so love the seniors that come thru BHR - they have so many stories to share and are so very willing to trust and be a partner as well. Sweet Will is this horse. Stay with us for more updates on Sweet Will's journey back to health.
