My little Champers has been doing fantastic lately, I was looking so forward to the upcoming shows, however last night he turned up lame. No idea what it is, but it's pretty inconsistent, he will gallop over for his food, put make him walk on your time and he has a minor head bob and favors it. I am leaning towards sole bruise because when I pick up the opposite foot he's shakey on the other. NO heat whatsoever, and I was very careful. I went up to the vet today to see if I could get some bute, but she though I was acting to fast on it and wait until Monday before I take him up there or give him anything. Abcess is another possibility like last summer, or the vet suggested a rolled ankle.Cookies to those who read, just needed to rant about it.
Horses are so frustrating sometimes, I just want to ride.
Live to ride. Ride to live.
