Monday, errands, and DRIVING to SPAIN

Started my morning with some Packing with Niki, and ironing on  unicorn patches on saddlepads and shirts πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

At little after 8 my cardio, had something to fix in Lausanne also with the ATA carnet, but they did not open before 9, sooo

My cardio went super! Look how fantastic! People cleaning leaves from the trail! 

Then the errands, had to wait a loooong time, but got it done! Then some stuff had to be bought for the trip and then back to the stables where Alf’i was waiting for me to go for a ride! 

Daniel came and gave Picsou the first shock waves, Janne and Francois took care of that, and me and Niki bandaged the horses and packed the rest of the stuff! This time Niki has almost packed all alone and she also rode Ice Tea today in the forest!

Look what we do on the hind legs of Ice Tea, just to be sure! Normal cotton wool,Roll it up! Bandage it on, I use between 3-4 on one hindleg and 3-4 vet wrap over 

Alf’i got normal bandages on! For long trips I think this is best! Bandages stays in the good position better than back on track in case the horse kicks or something! Remember  don’t bandage  to tight!

And ❀️Francois was there to see us well off! Always hard to go, I love him so much ❀️

More updates tomorrow

  1. Is it not easier to bandage him normal with thicker wraps and then put good high and thick travel boots over the bandage? Then there’s better circulation then the vet wrap and even more protection πŸ˜„

    1. I have tried that combination already! The bandages and the travel boots went down! Did not help at all! This worked perfect! It is how horses who has had a operation gets bandaged after πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‰πŸ˜ thank you for the comment


  2. Vet rap is not a good idea,it can cause a serious injury on a horse if you use it like that😬 really bad idea. Especially on his hocks,yikes. With difficult horses people use bandages with travelling boots taped over
