During the summer he gets what I like to call "Equine Soup", I wet down his senior feed and beet bulp a lot. He's good about drinking, but ever since his bad colic I just feel like the more water in him the better:-) !
Vet comes out again on Monday to do some more flextion tests and figure out which way to go from there... I'm sad to say I don't think the BL Pellets/ Solution did a bit of good:-/ I put him back on "Supple Horse", a Chinese herb because I had some left over. I ordered some Arthrisoothe-Gold - Powder The sentence: "The best joint formula available for horses with severe joint problems." sucked me in :-p so we will see, at least it will be something again. To be honest I have had him off joint supps. for awhile and was just using the herb.
I haven't been on him since Monday and then we only walked. What's the point? Neither of us will enjoy it. I seriously could not turn him right without huge resistance:-( and I wasn't asking for small circles or tight turns either, we're talking VERY open rein. But he would grab the bit on the right side and turn left.
He's just lucky he's so frigg'n CUTE! :-)

Well I think the injection of HA to his fetlock joint has worn off :-( Joint injections just don't seem to last long enough. I had his right stifle joint injected about 3 years ago and it only lasted 2 months. The one in the fetlock doesn't seem to have lasted even that long.
The first change I noticed after his fetlock injection was he was so WILLING to turn right and was so soft and supple in whatever I asked of him.
Slowly and surely he got more resistant to turn right:-( He just doesn't want to and sometimes it takes all my strength in my right arm to turn him. The difference I feel is like day and night, and we're back on the dark side again:-( He's so trippy again in the hind end. He stays braced in his neck for the most part and his "nervous- on edge" behaviour is back.
The vet said it's too soon to inject his fetlock again, but he said we could do his right knee. I also think about getting him back on Adequan or Legend shots. I also think about not riding him anymore. Guess it depends on the day.

see, Barbie arms, they just don't bend.
best example of my TurtleBarbieness
See I do ride! :-) Matt graciously took those photos a couple of Saturday's ago...I might not be(come) a Bridezilla, but I am a Photozilla for sure. Pics have to be perfect :-) The background, the timing - I become a director of my own little photo shoot and get Matt mad enough to almost quit. So then I have to beg him for just 100 more:-) Gotta love digital these days. So out of 170 photos taken that day those are the ones I liked for one reason or another.

getting her slip lead put on
She was so excited and I'm proud of her that she ran the whole thing, some of the dogs didn't finish and ran back to their mommies and daddies...
Video of Limo's run
oh she ran 30 mph. Matt and I are positive she can run faster with some more training! :-)
These are still shots from the video I liked.
Not bad for a mutant eh? :-)
