Thank duffy, I'm hoping it works well for her too.
Jaydee I was really just hoping we could do some 25-35 mile rides. I didn't ever expect to even get to a 50 with her but I was hoping maybe even just the competative trail but those are around 25 miles. I'm sure the neglect has a lot to do with how her joints didn't maintain themselves which sucks but I do have to remember she is 20.
Her mane had to go lol. She had the same issue last year, it's almost like a yeast infection on her skin. It gets all this yellow/orange puss all down her neck but only just under her mane not in it. And all the hair falls out and it does cause pain for her. I asked the vet about it and he said short of putting her on tri-hist she is a grey so she will have skin issues. But her new do has fixed the issue. Plus I kinda like it, makes her look like a little eventing pony haha.
