Thank you everyone for your input! I am looking into the SmartFlex Senior right now and am probably going to put an order in. We wanted to get him started on something ASAP though as he's gotten even worse in the last 2 days :(.. So, I picked up a bucket of whatever they had at our local feed store. I don't even remember what it's called, but they only had one choice. Better than nothing I would guess. It's tough to see him going this way. He was doing fine until the farrier came out, then the bute helped, but he's even worse now, so I'm not sure what happened, but we think that with all of the monkeying from the farrier something got hurt. He walked sideways to the barn yesterday, and then once inside he was walking in circles to try to catch himself from falling or something as he leans so far to his left side. However, he cantered part way over to the barn... It's awfully strange. I gave him the first loading dose of the stuff we bought then we kept an eye on him and he seemed OK. Now this morning my dad said he was fine when he went up into the pasture to give him his morning dose of it. I guess it's a wait and see game..
Oh and Rachel - Yes, he's turned out all of the time. He often chooses to stay in the barn with our cow as it's warmer and out of the elements, but he has free choice to go outside into the pasture. Also, as of yesterday my dad opened up the summer pasture to them so they have many many acres to roam now. I'm hoping that this added room and grazing incentive will get him out there moving more and will help him out. As I say, wait and see I guess!
