    Noticed my arab was limping a bit when I was lunging him today....so I figured I would take him to the vet and get him a checkup. Well turns out he cut his right front leg right above the hoof...probably with his hind leg overextending. I am upset though that I trimmed him out this weekend and didnt notice it. So now he has to get penacillin for 5 days and another drug for inflamation...yay.
