For all you mommy-bloggers out there, I have some news for you. Diapers make a great bandage for horses. Who knew?
You doubt me? Well, for once I have photographic evidence!
This is a fine example of Longs brand diapers. Infant sized, for those in class wanting details. Note the cheerful pastel design eliciting thoughts of dry baby butts.
Or in this case, we’re keeping epsom salt green goo from leaking out…not the usual diaper inhabitants.
Now you might think a horse wouldn’t mind a diaper on his foot. You’d be wrong. This horse, the fabulous Now Voyager, was quite frankly sick and tired of me messing about with his hoof after 7 weeks of lameness. Soaking in hot water with epsom salts. Wrapping the hoof, taping the hoof, putting the hoof in a boot that he would then promptly try to eat.
So I needed assistance and fortunately my friend Angelo was at hand. Little did he know when he journeyed from a tiny town in Belgium to the big U.S. of A. that he’d be roped into putting diapers on horses hooves.
Look how happy they are…tolerating my photo taking. What pals!
Now didn’t that just make your Monday a little bit better? I know it did for me.
