Eating! Wahooo

Upon arrival, Picaro was laying down resting and seemed highly disinterested in having any sort of company. He is however, "EATING"!!!!!!!! He took a keen interest in food and was munching on softened treats for quite some time. He's also highly interested in alfalfa pellet mashes that are prepared by the awesome (!!) team at Tufts.

Today he looks like almost an entirely different horse compared to a few days ago. His eye is so bright and he's so much more lively. He's definitely getting more stubborn and full of personality which means he's starting to feel a lot better too. He has a new face bandage that gets changed daily and he thinks it's pretty itchy...but he doesn't get that he's not supposed to scratch it.

He's also been drinking a fair amount on his own and has been taken off of his fluids in hopes that he will continue to drink. He's also now only in half isolation because it's been determined that he doesn't have any salmonella and his 'intestinal irregularity' is lessening.

Still not out of the woods entirely and still has a few hurdles to get over but any progress is great!

  1. WONDERFUL update! I run the Paso Fino fan page on Facebook.com, and someone posted this on the fan page's wall...I was so upset by this story, and even more upset that I hadn't heard before today - I live in MA, not far from where it happened. I am praying for his full recovery!!
