    That's great to hear Jazzy. I was the same way as your husband when I found out Vega was positive for HyPP. He was saying, even tho its a big deal, don't worry about it that much, and just continue on like everything's ok. I was like "How can I just forget she has it? What if she has an episode?!" then I talked to a few other people and they were like "don't overreact. If she hasnt had an episode the chances are good she wont, and just continue on like normal" and then it hit me and I was like ok, I can do that. And then I felt bad for not listening and taking into account everything my boyfriend said. But I have learned. Glad to hear you changed her name to Gypsy. Now its like a complete new start to a wonderful life! Have lots of fun with her and I wish you two the best of luck

    Ok, day 24 photos. Hehehe they just keep coming don't they. Im just so proud of her and how she is coming along that I just have to keep taking photos lol

    I've got a few randoms from today when my husband was leading her over a few trotting poles/ridiculously tiny jumps lol but she is only learning so I guess its ok

    I had just given her a bath so she is looking extra spiffy (or as spiffy as she can look at the moment :))

    Sweet!! Your horse is looking better and better! I take it that you're gradually exercising her to build up her muscles? It won't be long before she back in beautiful shape.

    Jazzy, Gypsy looks amazing! In a few months, I can only imagine what she'll look like!

    HyPP stands for Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis. Basically the horse produces too much potassiam and it can lead to muscle tremors and a whole bunch of other yukky stuff.

    i sure am. I alternate between lunging, riding and taking her for a run on the ground. We don't do too much yet. The longest ride I have had so far was 20 minutes and we do lots of trotting. She is starting to tell me when she's had enough lol once she gets warmed up these days she gets pretty excited. Not crazy but you can feel that energy in her :)

    Appy - I can't wait until then :) it looks like she isnt going to be one of those lean type tb which I like too :)

    Yeahh I like that too. I rather have a horse that we have to work a little more to lose a few pounds than to do less to gain pounds.
