He will be 3 on April 24th. He is growing still, yes. He should finish about 15.1-15.2hh.
His diet is balanced, as per feedxl, except for salt- I need to find him just a salt block, or start him on loose salt.
Yes he is still young, but I feel short rides 2-3 times a week, if that, will not damage him. He shows no sign of pain, no heat, no swelling, no limping. His left knee is getting a lot better. It's only his right knee that wobbles the most now. But it is not something that happens just from riding- he does it when he comes in from outside, standing in the cross-ties.
I will talk to my mom about having the vet out as well. She's kinda helping me financially right now... If Walter needs rest, then I wouldn't complain. He is my baby, and his health and wellbeing will always come above showing. I am actually terrified for the upcoming shows.
I hope I replied to everyone? I am at work and a little scatter-brained today. I will get hoof pics tonight though, and a video of his knees too.
