The vets came out and looked him over again today. Plural vets because we use Ohio State Vets and they always have students with them, which I think is great. Being a teacher myself I am happy to help them get experience. They've got to get it somehow, right?
Anyway they were thrilled with how well he was behaving - they squirted stain and then saline in his eye and he didn't even step away. They were also thrilled with how healed he is already. I couldn't see the scratch yesterday and today they could just barely see where it was with the dye and the light-up-eye-viewing-thingy. I'm 100% sure that's the technical term for it. So no more Banamine, but still keep gooing it a few times a day and fly mask on if possible. Since he tends to tear it off I'm not thinking it's worth it to put it on him each day, but I'll try tomorrow and see how it goes. Luckily we're on Spring Break so I CAN drive out there twice a day!
I lunged him this morning since he hasn't been worked/turned out since Monday and he's having his feet trimmed today and I'm going to go ahead and do my showmanship lesson tonight. After lunging I let him hand graze near the mud lot where his buddies were turned out. They all came over and told secrets. This is Zippy saying "Dude, why aren't you in here and WTF is on your head?!?!"
