He is a lot happier, he is now on turn out rather than the dry lot and looks a lot lot easier, it helps that Willow is no longer in season so isn't chasing him.

No vet yet, watching and waiting as he improves. Farrier is next on the list and may try and coordinate vet and farrier if needed.

Still no heating or swelling, he is bright eyed bushy tailed and eating well.

Yes he is still sore but improving, I'm starting with wanting his feet done again, as watching him move I am convinced that the problem is down there.

Cody updates.....

The vet thought he was lame in the off hind, stifle area and suggested manipulation.

My farrier and I have been working to improve his feet, we have been worried about the possibility of navicular.

Today we saw the manipulator, and she found him really really tight through his shoulders, especially on the near side, he was also out around his withers, so she massaged, manipulated and stretched him, and I couldn't believe how much better he was afterwards, he was trotting around the arena with a degree of length to his stride.

I have to massage him, and stretch him everyday, then exercise him at a trot in a straight line......that is going to be fun to organize [IMG]http://**************.com/Smileys/Lots_O_Smileys/icon_scratch.gif[/IMG]

I also bought some Sinew-x to try see if that helps. She didn't find anything 'off' on his hinds anywhere, so all the work will be done on the front end. I am very hopeful that he will come right, the difference from one treatment was amazing.

A certain part of me is internally pleased, because I had said "Front left" in my visual assessment, and according to this body worker, that is where the offness is, so I feel like, yah! I was right!
