Snake scare
I am so sorry it has been so long since ive been here! I got a call from the lady that takes care of Jazzi when I'm not there, and she said that she had went out to the feild for the night feeding, Nugget ran up as usual, but Jazzi was lagging back. She said she looked at Jazzi again and noticed her head was swollen to about three times its normal size! What you now have to understand is that it is copperhead season in our area, and Jazzi had been turned out on the 150 acre feild all day. So she put Jazzi in the barn and called the vet and I. Went down asap, and Jazzi looked terrible. I was so worried we would lose her! (The horse I had before this had died from a snake bite) The vet said he couldn't see the usual fang marks of a snake bite, so to watch her, and call him back if she began to have trouble breathing. Three days of waiting later, Jazzi's swelling went down. When my cousin came down with two of her horses, we found a huge hornets nest near Jazzi's favorite patch of grass! The vet said that that was a very likely explanation. So, Jazzi is OK now, but that is where I have been...
