More Preacher Problems!!

I don't know how much more I can take!!
Today Preacher wasn't acting right when I brought him into the arena. Real sluggish and just didn't feel well. His temp turned out to be 102.8. I put him in his stall and called the vet. (AGAIN!!!!)
It could be a couple things but his temp was down to 101.2 by the time the vet left. She did a CBC which will be back tomorrow. No it's not his cut, that looks wonderful. Could be a reaction from his tetanus booster or a colitis caused by the antibiotics which she gave us some probiotics for him for. Or who knows what! I also gave him some Banamine for the temp.
I surrender!!! I've had enough! Please Lord bring good health to this barn!!!!
I'm stressed out, tapped out and burned out!

Monk goes in for his first heart worm shot next Tuesday. And that's a whole other can of worms to worry about!!

P.S. 10/11
Preacher is feeling his old self today and has a normal temp. His blood work also came back normal. The temp. spike could've just been from the tetanus booster, like kids sometimes get.
I'm very relieved!!!!
Thank you Jesus and to all of you for your kind thoughts.



  1. Thinking of you and your animals. Hope all goes well with them both. Will be waiting on a report.

  2. Please Lord we ask that Preacher be healed, Satire kept safe & healthy and Monk to make it through his treatment with flying colors. In Jesus name I pray.

  3. Oh Shirley, not again. I am so sorry. You have been hit with more than your share of trouble with these poor creatures. They are so lucky to have you.

  4. Oh my goodness, so sorry it all appears to be pear shaped at the moment Shirley. Sending positive thoughts for Preacher and Monk's recoveries...AND for your nerves!
