Bess' leg was put in a temporary splint so she was able to walk into the horse trailer to get to the stable. This was very painful despite all the pain killers and was sweating from nose to tail and had stopped eating. After a late phone call to the vet she came out to give her Morphine which is a very strong pain killer. Bess responded well and at baout one thirty in the morning became much more relaxed and started to eat and drink again. We were very relieved. A big thanks goes to all who took it in turns to stay up with Bess through the night as it was very important that she was not left alone and she was grateful of the company.
