Biasini Speaks: A Fuss About Nothing!

Hello Dear Humans. This week Ma Leueen and a whole bunch of other Humans at the barn got in a knot about one of my legs. I had cut it a bit. Just a tiny prick. And no, I have no idea how I did it. And even if I did I wouldn’t admit it. So Ma Leueen sees this tiny cut and she gets all upset about it because there is some “swelling”. So she gets Barn Manager Carl to look at it. Well he’s a sensible guy and he says it is nothing to worry about. Ma Leueen cleans it up and that is that. Until the next day when Ma Leueen gets Super Groom Lexi and Therapy Person Lori to look at it. Well, they both think there is a cause for some concern. Seriously? I mean it is not like I had cut a big piece out of my leg. It’s not like I was hobbling around not able to walk, trot and canter. It’s just a bit of swelling!

Ma Leueen decided a walk would be good for me and we went on a forest trail ride. It was delightful. But Ma Leueen was still fussing about my leg. She sprayed some stuff on it that had helped with swelling the last time I got a scratched leg. The next day she was still fussing and Assistant Trainer Lynsey said she would be concerned if it was one of her horses. I gave her a look but she ignored me. That night SG Lexi wrapped my leg in a bandage. I had to have bandages on both of my front legs. And the next night they put some yellow goop on my leg and then put the bandage on. That seemed to make them happier because when they took it off my leg had almost no swelling. I did a bit of work with Ma Leueen in the outdoor arena and then went for a short trail ride. I love walking through the leaves.

Then a vet came. She was a nice lady and she felt my leg and said she thought it was doing well and healing up nicely. SEE! I coulda told them that! She also said it was fine for me to go back to work . Yay! I was happy to hear that. I like working. It makes me feel important. But then Ma Leueen and I had a lesson with Coach Belinda and she made us work a lot! I think Ma Leueen might have been more tired than me at the end!

Anyway my leg is fine. It never hurt and I never limped or anything like that. So what was all the fuss about?

Just for fun I asked Ma Leueen to take a video of us walking around the paddocks at the end of our lesson. I knew you would like to hear me rustling the leaves with my hooves.

I hope you enjoyed that! Till next time Dear Humans.

    We are all worried about our Ponies even if they get a little scratch. The swelling is normal but I have to agree can be worrisome. So happy it was nothing to worry about!! And WOW! Those leaves on your trail are amazingly loud as they crunch while you walk!! Sounds like a bunch of potato chips! Lol 🐴❤️ tell your Ma, thank you for sharing!! 🤠🐴❤️

    Well Biasini, I’m thinking you need to be more grateful to Ma Leueen for being so worried about you and for taking such good, loving care of you! After all, if 99% of the time a cut is nothing, we humans have to be sure we’re covered for that nasty other 1%! So happy to hear you’re okay and enjoying the autumn leaves!

      Thank you Tina Human. I know I am lucky to have a Human that looks after me so well. Some of the other Humans have left comments about something called Cell you something that is very nasty and so I’m glad I didn’t get that. 🐴

      Thank you Gavin and Wyatt canines! Good to hear from you. I know I have a good Human I just wish she would not worry so much. But I know that in horses legs these small things can sometimes be serious. Enjoy your outdoor time too!

    So glad you are okay, Biasini. We humans do tend to go overboard with concern when one we care about is hurt, even a little bit. 😉

    So, Biasini, have you ever heard of cellulitis? When that happens a small scratch can make your leg blow up till it looks like it belongs on an elephant. Be happy Ma Leueen would never let that happen to you. If my old Thoroughbred were still around I’d let him tell you what that feels like. ❤️

      Well Alli Human Assistant Trainer Lynsey did mention that cell you whatsis . Ma Leueen told me that since horses only have tendons and ligaments in the lower legs any swelling means liquid and that can push the tendons and cause problems. I’m sorry your horse had a bad time with his leg. I have taken note of what you say . I shall be more appreciative of Ma Leueen and her fussing in future. 🐴

    Beautiful “walk”. Momma Linda would be the same way if one of her puppies had a “scratch.”

      Thank you for commenting Cigar Human. I know that Humans get all worked up about these things so I would expect the same from your Momma Linda. 🐴
