Wolfie had major abdominal surgery and spent a month recovering in the vet school. It was a long haul and the wound sites were draining infection right up until 2 days prior to his discharge from the vet school. Schirrous chord is resistant to antibiotics so it's a case of waiting and hoping. This next short clip was taken about 3 weeks after he came home and well on the way to recovery.
Wolfie had vet visits at least 3 times a week for that first month. My vet likes to tell all his students about Wolfie when he's visiting . The last time he was up he was saying what a nice type of horse he was and that he was lovely looking and very striking. Then he said '.........because he certainly wasn't much to look at when you got him'. No he certainly wasn't, but he was still Wolfie and I'm sure it was his heart and spirit that got him through those first few months with me.
