    It looks like Jess took a tumble in the field yesterday, skinned the right fetlock, left fetlock and left knee both well scraped and right knee scuffed, I can only assume that she went down charging about. She's still sound but the right fetlock is a bit fat this morning o_O

    I walked all around the field, the only thing I could see was a hole where someone (or something, possibly a Hank or a rabbit) had been digging, it was about 8" deep and looked like maybe a hoof print in the bottom of it, I can only assume she charged and went down when the ground was lower than expected.

    Oh dear, she does love a hooly, doesn't she? I hope she's better soon and fetlock returns to normal!

    We leave on the 19th so 10 days away, theres local swelling around the worst scrape, but she's not uncomfortable on it and has let me poke and prod without breaking her chewing stride :)

    The rhythm she's chewing

    Went out for half hour, she felt fine so as long as it hasn't blown up by morning I think we're in the clear
