It only took 2 days!

I have been fighting with my 21 year olds arthritis for about 2 years now. We moved to a new barn 2 days ago and he isn't soar anymore! I am so thrilled that it only took some grass to make the pain stop!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Or was it simply being able to amble around? Being able to move around freely does amazing things for old stiff joints.

I don't know what did it. It could be that there is no mud in his new pasture unlike his old. Or it could be that he is on better feed or it could be the grass.

I am betting that it is more exercise. Moving joints keeps them less stiff.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

I totally agree with the availability of more room. I don't really believe in stalling for this reason. A muddy pasture could have made him lame as well. If the problem comes back I recommend Cortiflex to help him out.
