Yesterday the veterinarian was here because the pony Lucero is lame. He anaesthetized his leg and found out that Lucero could have arthrosis. For more details he will make an x-ray in a few days.
Poor Lucero, he has to conserve his leg and couldn't be ridden.
This morning when I wanted to feed the horses I found Lucero on the paddock of the two mares. He destroyed his whole fence, the little bastard! And I had to repair it... This pony is breaking out from everywhere - often I find him in the barn, eating some hay.
After work I was sitting near the horses in the sun - it was great!
The last days were hard for me, especially for my mental health. I don't know why but I'm getting more depressiv, I'm afraid of the future and the cutting pressure gets more and more.
But I hope it is just temporary and will be over soon.
I think I'll stay here at least until April because my guestmother will fly to Germany in March so I have to look after house and animals. But another volunteer will come so we are in twos.
Wish you all the best!
