Today Miss Bonnie is sassy and vibrant, not wanting to lead politely, spooky and snorting coming in from pasture.
Also showing early signs of mild dehydration. Her urine spot in her stall was a bit smaller, but still significant. Her manure while same amounts is dryer in consistency. She is VERY sunken in the flanks.
She did eat the entire flake of hay, there were quid balls but I'd say 98% of the flake from last night was eaten.
Now if only she'd drink. I started electrolytes yesterday evening. She drank a very small amount from her buckets over night. No idea of she drank in the field.
I'm open to ANY idea's to get her drinking. Already tried the gatoraid straight in a bucket - she showed no interest.
I'm also not entirely sure the swelling in her chest is a from a kick. It wasn't localized to one area - her entire midline from throat latch to chest was swollen. I also had started exactly 4 feedings before the quiding started was topping her pellets with Tribute's Essential K. It's a feed dressing of minerals and protein. I stopped the EK with this past Monday's evening feed and Tuesday the swelling in her neck had gone down and is completely gone today.
If anyone had kicked her it would have been Rosie. They are turned out together and no one else is with them.
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes, thoughts, prayers and advice, it is greatly appreciated!
