    I was so happy to see this update pop up! I've wondered about you and Dillon and am so happy to hear about his progress. Would love to see more pictures if him now.

    GB, I am so happy to hear that update! Glad he is doing so well. This is one of those stories that one doesn't forget. Such an amazing recovery. Good on you for doing all you could and good on Dillon for being such a tough cookie.

    I will ask about the picture thing. I don't know anything about the tech side of things but will see if I can get an answer for you.

    Hi everyone!

    So happy to hear you are still interested in Dillon! I mentioned in my post that his lack of handling himself could be confidence and that is probably true but after rereading my post again it most likely stems from him not being 100% in being able to handle those situations. Somtimes he has felt like he could fall and that has scared me. I need to be even more aware of this and protect him from feeling this way. These incidents are rare though, thank goodness! I just had an ah ha moment as well. My regular vet was out just last month and said his eyes are fine, previously I was told the globe in the left eye was not as large, but I just wonder if part of this actually does stem from not being able to see as well..just a thought

    Can't remember if I mentioned in my past posts about the space above his eye on the left side was sunken in. I believe that was the last thing to heal, it no longer is sunken in. Kayella, isn't it amazing how well your boy is doing since November? He will most likely continue to heal as you saw for who knows..maybe 2 years or so. We know how it feels to almost lose a horse am so happy that you added your story, like me it gives hope to others. Would be nice if you added some before and after photos either on your own post or here, I for one would love to see them! Updates on him as well form time to time too.

    What spurred this update is the Equine Affair here in ohio this weekend, where the vet Dr. Ronald Anders was giving some lectures, one of which was accupunture where he performed chiro/accupunture and drew quite a crowd.He does amazing healing! If anyone in the neighboring states would like info on how to get ahold of him let me know, he travels! Thanks again and will put some more pic's up...

    Your very lucky! I know a lady down in Georgia who took care of my great-grandfather and all four of her horses died from one lightening strike. Must be horrible but I am glad yours survived!
