Pin the injection on the pony...
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.
