I have put Jackson back on stall rest for the next two weeks until the vet can come and evaluate his hocks. I'm hoping that the rest will finally kick the laminitis. With his hind end off, he can't work correctly anyway. This morning while I was walking him, it slipped out three times. But, his feet seemed fine so I'm hoping that we will do hock injections next week and then I should have a sound horse again. Should. You never know with horses. I had his hocks injected a year ago and he improved 100%.
While I took Jackson for a walk, Brett rode Flash in the arena.
|I like this picture because they both look relaxed. Brett almost always has contact on Flash's mouth so most pictures of them show tension.|
When we got back from our walk, Jackson explored the barn aisle.
|Hmmm, Venice Turpentine, fly spray, a brush and a hoof pick... Where's the cookies??|
|Where should I go next?|
|Oh, right. Jail.|
