So I’ve been a bad blogger. Some catchup to do here. On the plus side I have lots of photos.
The vet came out and did fall shots. She took blood to retest Stampede after his diet changes. His results came back normal this time, so that’s good. We discussed some things with the boys and made a few changes. For Phoenix, we decided to pull his front shoes. His feet have been looking more and more scary, and in particular I have found the wedges alarming. So his shoes have been pulled and we will see where it goes. He’s been surprisingly not sore, although that’s probably because my farrier didn’t trim much off after he pulled the shoes. For Stampede, we decided to put on some shoes that go further back so he’ll have more heel support. I will pull his shoes once the snow flies. We also decided to up his adequan and see if that helps. In general they say to give 5ml, but Stampede is so big that based on weight he should be getting 6.5ml, so that’s what he will be getting now.
So P has had an easy week so he can get used to his new feet. I’ve been getting on him daily and doing lots of walking. Both of the boys have been going trail riding both last week and this week on the weekend. I also have some other cute shots from playing with them in the indoor during the week.
Heading to the barn soon, going to ride P a little bit then go on another trail ride with my friend Christie.
