Lesson Day

Whew, we've been to the horse stable for the third straight day in a row. As much as we love Caesar, we normally see him every other day. With the hot weather, it's been too hot to ride

Thursday - for a short trail ride and then some time in the arena.

Friday - we received a call that Caesar's left eye was irritated and swollen shut. A call to the local large animal vet and we were out there, attending to his inflamed eye. We learned that Appaloosas are prone to an eye disorder, uveitis. Caesar was treated with a steroid and some antibiotics. He is wearing a fly mask to keep the irritants out of his eyes. He looks like the masked bandit horse.

Today - in addition to giving Caesar some eye drops and oral medication, it's lesson day. He was given the go ahead by the vet to ride, so we met up with Jordan and Cody for riding lessons.
Ready for Lessons

It was hot and dusty, but I don't think the girls really mind that much. This picture taken with my iPhone:
Riding Lessons

Jordan's mom and I enjoyed the company of Meg's dog, Colfax. He kept us on our toes while the girls rode.

We'll be back out to see Caesar tomorrow - to continue checking on his eye. I'm going to take a picture of him in his mask.

Poor Caeser. I hope he feels better soon.
