There are pic's on page 5 and 6. I need to take more pic's this weekend to show his head and face, that is where you can see the paralysis the most. Thank you Qos for more info on LD, I wish for her and Kellie that she can be ridden again. My gosh I am not even sure my Dillon will be able to be ridden, I am hopeful though. I thougt that maybe I should start hand walking him on the trails. That might help with the hills and varied terrain just as much as the carrot exersizes.
Just a short update. Brought Dillon in the barn today way of the 10" step and he did very well. Remember 3 weeks ago he gently fell into the door frame. He was not perfect but so much better. I then groomed him and took him for a short walk in the woods all of about 10 minutes and he did great! No stumbling or wobbling that I could see. I did have a friend take a short video and some pic's but haven't got them downloaded yet..soon. Just wanted to share my joy...
Wow, what an amazing story. Thank you so much for sharing. You are both survivors in my opinion. What a terrible thing for both of you to have to go through. I think your boy is beautiful and that his little floppy ear only ads character. Both of you are strong and I think at the rate he is recovering that some day you will ride him again.
hope this shows up better after posting, my other pictures weren't this small. Also tried putting up a video but that didnt work either. In any case I have been on his back 3 times now for just a few minutes, doing very well and broke into a jog a couple times, still not 100% but feel good about today. BTW if you can see the house on the left, a new roof is being put on and Dillon could care less!
Sorry I haven't updated. Last weekend we decided to load up and trailer out to bridle paths that are only 15 minutes from barn. He took a couple minutes to load then walked right in. I wanted to ride in the trailer just to make sure he wasn't going to freak out so I did down the driveway and just down the road about 1/8 of a mile. He did pretty good, seemed a little concerned going down the driveway because of all the little dips and holes and it was pretty noisy but once we got to the road he was better, so I got out and got into the truck.
