I got a call from Brody, my barn manager, this morning. He told me that Annapolis was bleeding from the nostrils and apparently had been for a while, judging by the amount of blood on his chest and legs.
He said he was eating breakfast and seemed okay, but he had called the vet.
The vet called me back and said he needed to go in to hospital so they can scope him and find out what's going on. She called Waller Equine, who would send a trailer out to come and get him. In fact, my vet and her assistant made the executive decision to take Star with him, to keep him calm and keep his blood pressure down.
They are on their way now and I'm stuck at work, covering the switchboard for our receptionist while she's at lunch.
I know this may be a signal of the beginning of the end for 32 yr old Annapolis and if that's the case, I hope he goes easy. But I'm really hoping it's just a minor thing and he makes a full and quick recovery.
