The vet ok'ed Rascal to be ridden, for now...

I was making the appointments for Rascal for the final evaluation. The vet feels that he is as healed as he will ever be. This last round of xrays, ultra sounds, and tests will be his final eval. He wants me working him daily again. By July I am supposed to be pushing his physical boundaries from the ground. He wants him working for this eval.

He feels he is as healed as he will ever be now. Either he will be sound, or he is destined to be a pasture puff. I want him sound and happy most of all. Vet says this is the only way to know 100% that he will perform without pain. Work him and see. I have to keep his chiro visits on a regular schedule, start REALLY slowly, make sure he is in top condition from the ground, and then I get to ride!!

There is no guarantee he'll stay sound.I know this. I still can't help but get excited.


I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.
