    Rummy's injury

    Ok so I have just recently gotten back from holiday and will be riding my baby first thing in the morning. I am a little concerned as it is only his second time being ridden since he developed a particularly bad abscess in his foot close to a month ago. After 2 weeks I hopped on him hoping he was better but alas still felt a little and came up quite lame the next day :( so like I said I am hoping he will be ok after being ridden... However after this I am concerned as to his muscle tone, after just 2 weeks he lost a considerable amount of his neck muscle, and now 4 weeks have passed I'm afraid he will be a genuine noodle neck! Since rum is still just young in my books (I only started breaking him dec last year- and he's my first breaker!) He is still building his neck muscle, what I want to know if there is anything in particular that assists in building neck muscles... I'm not particularly concerned with looks at this stage just a way to help his neck muscles to develop so there isn't as much discomfort caused by his being out of work for a short period of time! Ideas anyone?
