Breed: Quarter Pony
Name: My Kind Of Magic ("Magic")
Other: CUTEST PONY EVER!!!
Magic is on layup at the moment because he has Pedal Ostietis.
Magic started going lame on & off for a while, and I got really concerned. So we took him t the vet. When the vets were doing work on him, they took x-rays of his hooves, and nerve blocks, and flexion tests to find out what's wrong, and he didn't pass the flexion test of his left front pastern. They did more x-rays and them narrowed it down to his left front pastern and studied that, they found in the x-ray, that he has a disease called, Pedal Ostietis (which is demineralization of the coffin bone. It is caused by poor shoeing over the years and hard impact w/ shoes and happens to effect the coffin bone, - the cowboys who started him must have contributed to this issue-) I have special boots for him now because he cannot be on any kind of hard surface so he has to have 2 months of stall rest with hand-walking for the 1st month and riding at the walk for the 2nd month. Luckily we only have about 1/2 a month left of riding @ the walk! Yay! The farrier says he is doing
MUCH better, which is suppppeeeerrrrr ggooooood news!!!!!
