    Thanks people, I have been so busy of late so don't really get on here. Paris is going well though & her soundness is not effected by the wound. She did drop a bit of muscle & weight when she was out of action but I am sure that will build up again as her work load build up.
    We have her half brother Jake here also & both are lovely horses......just BIG LOL.
    I always had alot of faith in the vet who treated Paris & once again he was spot on. He gives a person confidence ...... we are very lucky to have him :)

    So you can see we are getting there & while she will have some visable scaring the hair is growing back & as she builds muscle it will be less noticable.

    Any way she is going well & as there isn't the dramatic changes happening i will probably only put up a pick when she is all healed & then again when she is in full work.

    ATM we are all too busy with work & settling into the new property.

    Once i get off dial up & onto something fast i will try & catch up with all the news

    Cheers :) KC

    Thanks guys .....it is nice to see her back in work. It was also good to have a couple of short trips in the truck because she was pretty stressed the first time we put her up in it.
    She crouched down on her back legs, which made me think thats how it happened but the new truck is really good & by the time she travelled 4 times over the weekend she got better & better.
    The first day at the clinic she was a little emotional but by the second day, she travelled well was really good. She really is a sweet mare & will always have a special place in our hearts because of what she went through & also because she is Jakes half sister.
    Still struggling a bit over Jake ....so Paris needs to get up there even if its just in memory of Jake ...... I miss him
