    But good news for Red for the most part. He said he was a bit sore on his right poll, and slightly sore in his withers and his back but not bad.

    Especially when he worked on his back, Red was just in 7th heaven. He was loving it!

    My boarding lady's horse didn't have as good of a report, but he has had a history of back problems since they had a serious fall about 4 years ago during an endurance competition. He was obviously tender in several places in his back. It's amazing how you can see the difference instantly when the chiro makes adjustments, based on how the horse responds to pressure on his back.

    So for Red he doesn't really need a follow-up visit at all. If I notice any issues later on in the year, I will have him checked out. But if not, I'll probably just stick to once a year check-ups which my chiro said is just fine.

    I'm just happy for the fairly good report!
    Well joe4d maybe you don't believe in chiro work on horses but other people on here do. I have chiro work done on my horses and it does make a diffrence weather you believe it or not. The chiro only comes once a year so don't think that is called a snake oil sales men.Glad to hear red had a good report and not much wrong.
