What a snake bite looks like, day 2
Not pretty. The gray stuff is some sort of silver lotion. He was putting weight on the foot today, and his leg was too fuzzy to be able to see where the puncture marks were.
What's also troubling for Pepper now is that he's suddenly lost a lot of weight-- I think his teeth are worn out, poor guy. They're going to start feeding him pellets and soft foods to get his weight back up. Most of the horses at this ranch are fat and shiny-- it's not what they're feeding, but his trouble chewing it. He loved the peppermints stray g gave me to feed him, and also the three bananas. Poor old Pepper.
