Above Karin is showing Jaclyn what she is working with and below Jaclyn is trying it out and is successful.
She settled! Ella is due May 28th, 2017 below is the embryonic vesicle.
Eliza was next, she was bred back to Valiant as her colt by Valiant is so spectacular.
She too settled. Eliza is due June 4th, 2017.
Karin brought Galena in for her ultrasound. Now Galena was spending time over by Valiant this morning so I thought she probably was coming into season and sure enough she is. She has a 45 mm follicle and will need to be covered tomorrow morning.
Jenis was the last mare to be sonagrammed and we got the good news that her uterus is clean and looks great. She should be coming into season in a couple weeks and will be bred to Evan. Sure hope she will settle.
The last mare we wanted Dr. Hoerr to look at was Ribbon. Ribbon has had a snot coming out of just the right nostril for the past 3 weeks and last Monday was cranky. It is not normal for Ribbon to be cranky so we knew she wasn't feeling well. She has a sinus infection which will need to be treated for the next couple weeks. Each day she will get 60 ccs of Gentamiacin to clear this up. As Jaclyn is here to learn she was given the job of giving the shots each day.
Above and below she is getting instructions from Dr. Hoerr as to where and how to give it.
