Had a new farrier come out on Friday. He too said that even though he has thrush in that left hind, that it wouldnt cause the lameness to the extent that it is. Still saving up money for the xray, of course everything has to come up, and go wrong, so its proving to be harder than it should be to save up $200! The new farrier did notice a change of growth on Rodeo's hoof, Im really really hoping that its nothing too serious to where it cant be fixed. The entire situation is really starting to get to me, keep o
Havent posted in some time now. Rodeo stayed sound for quite some time, he was even sound enough that I hopped on him bareback for a short ride. About a week later, on his 3rd birthday, he was dead lame once again. Hes been put back into confinement, but is in a small pen right next to the other horses. He hasnt gotten any better, or any worse since April 11th. Scheduling an xray in the next week. Keep your fingers crossed that its nothing too serious!
Rodeo has been 100% sound at the walk for several days now. At the trot he is still a little sore, but looking very promising! I took him up to the arena today and had him trotting around today, and next thing you know, he is getting more and more sound and he goes, and he breaks into a nice even canter! So I decided why not see how he does out with the herd today instead of by himself still. He trotted off once I let him go, right over to the round bale, and started eating. BO said he came back in sound!!!! So he is going to be turned out again tomorrow, keep your fingers crossed in that everything stays as it is and continues to get better!
