You've Come a Long Way Baby


From this (on July 18 2011)

to this (today)

and this

Sunny has made it a long way from her dreadful barbed wire injury last year.

She never was the worse for wear, never did take a lame step. The injury only hurt the first few times we changed the bandage, but even before tissue completely grew over the exposed bone, she took no more notice of it.

She'll be ready for an endurance ride by summer. Maybe even spring. I'm thinking John should even do a 100 miler on her at the end of May. (Haven't told John that yet).


  1. That pic of her injury makes me cringe every time I see it. So glad to hear she's doing fine.

  2. Totally wonderful news! I was so worried when I first saw the injury, but your super care and nature's incredible ability to heal has made all the difference.

    I am so looking forward to news about that 100 miler! This is an amazing story.

  3. That is absolutely amazing!! I wish her many many more miles!

  4. She's looking good. I'm impressed and amazed by her recovery.

  5. If she still has scarring and/or proud flesh, lavender oil will really help.

  6. Wow! The healing is incredible.

  7. Great equestrian blog! Why not come and post it at an Equine Social Blogging Network for more to follow? Be great to have you there!

  8. So happy for Sunny girl!!! ♥
