I somewhat inexplicably contracted strep throat and spent the last two days home sick. The best nurse dog ever helped me through it, though.
And besides, it gave me some much needed time to take my final pictures of my house in its current state and get packing. Going to miss this little house, but I'm looking forward to working on the next one!
So I ran out to the barn when I was starting to feel better and gave Connor his spring vaccine. I went with Vetera Gold XP this year, which I have never used before, but the vet recommended it for the particular strains of equine influenza it protects against based on what's going around this year. It's like the human flu shot, where they guess what strains will be most prevalent and make the vaccine to reflect that guess.
I guess my logic was that I wasn't up to riding, so he shouldn't be either? I gave him his shot and handwalked him for 10 minutes after to try to mitigate soreness as much as I could, then turned him back out to move around.
In the meantime, we're planning our next event, which looks to be Midsouth at KHP in June, preceded by a schooling show and XC schooling. Anyone going to that?
