New Money Honey is coming along
New Money HoneyFebruary 21st, 2020
New Money Honey is progressing well, her mammary development is slowly coming on. The staff at Indian Creek Farm believe she will go over her due date of February 21 by about a week to ten days. Leo Dooley, Broodmare Manager provided the information below about her stable bandages.
On Sunday February 16th New Money Honey presented with moderate swelling in her right hind leg and mild swelling in her left hind leg. Following consultation with our veterinarian it was decided to put New Money Honey on a precautionary 3 day course of oxytetracycline. This is an antibiotic that is useful for fighting off a cellulitis. In central Kentucky during the Spring this is not uncommon due to wet ground conditions. New Money Honey was also placed in stall wraps on both hinds until swelling is resolved. We are happy to report that at no stage was she uncomfortable and has continued to maintain a healthy appetite.
Most likely she is days away from delivering but continue to follow her over the weekend to stay updated.
