Well it is a year later from my last post and I want to let you all know how well Dillon is doing. In 2012 I had a total of 663.37 miles, the majority of which was on Dillon, some on our mare. He is doing great, I still at times see a little head tilt but if you did not know his story you might not notice. Took him to the beach last fall, when we got up to not quite his belly I felt a little dizzy, I think he did too, not sure, if I fed off of what he was feeling or if he was feeding off of me. As of now he doesn't always handle himself as well as he used to before the strike in certain conditions like a small hill to a creek he has had some trouble handling himself going down like he wasn't sure he could do it, lack of confidence I think. On the same hill or mare just hunkers down on her hocks and slides right down. But all in all he is great! I need to remember his nerves are still healing, hasn't even been quite 2 years yet. It is so exhilerating to canter him again as well and sometimes I forget what he has been through. On rides that is just him and me I say "Thank you God for this beautiful day, this wonderful horse and the opportunity to ride"!
I noticed all the pic's but one that I posted are gone..why is this, too old?
