    Thanks so much for stepping up to the plate and helping this poor guy. I hope that against all odds, he makes a complete recovery.

    He is still here and putting weight on. We should be getting fecal results back from MSU shortly so that I can accordingly de-worm him. His feet weren't real long (makes me wonder who was trimming him? Typically, if you leave a horse tied behind a barn you don't bother with their feet!) so we've been just waiting for the next scheduled farrier visit, which should be Monday. I am interested to see what she thinks of his feet, lamanitis wise. His chiropractor appointment was pushed back, but we will get there.

    I have a vet coming out in the beginning of August for a Mini who will be traveling out of country, while he's out I'd like Keller to have a blood panel and have him tested for Lepto... before I put him in with my other horses.

    He very desperately wants to follow someone around, so if we get an all clear and get his skin fungus cleared up then I will turn him out in the pasture with all of the other pasture pets. There is an outcast older red roan in there who I am sure will let Keller follow him around.

    Keller gets to come out for a half hour when I get the chance to watch him around the wire fences. He is very good about using his nose to find things. If he thinks that he has gone to far, he'll put his nose down to be sure that he doesn't bump into something. If he trips, he'll check the ground with his nose. (which he demonstrated in the video) He is quite sensible and so far, he has memorized where the fences are and stays away. He spends most of his time following me around while out, but I did manage to get a little video of him. He cannot wait to have a buddy.

    Just because I was curious, and not because he is ready, I put a bridle on him to see if he'd had a bit in his mouth before. He appears to be broke to ride. From the ground, he neck and direct reins anyway SO IF he can be comfortable enough, he just might be a little trail horse. A new trim angle might help a great deal. His ankles no longer pop. I think that muscle from riding would be a good thing to help his stifle. His neck makes me wonder, it can look really stiff and wonky (like at 16sec and 45 sec in video) I cannot decide if it hurts, if he's built that poorly, if he just does it because of how he holds his head to try to see or a combination there of. Not that I hold it against him, just trying to figure things out for him. He still pees funny. We gave him a cleaning. If the blood panel looks OK I guess I wont worry to much. We're getting there!

    He appears to be happy ! Glad he is doing better. So kind of you to help him.
    Maybe he holds his neck odd, and head for hearing and vision, and has simply gotten stiff from the past neglect.

    Poor fellow, but what an amazing man to trade his vehicle to help him out. I bet it will be thrilled to hear of his progress!!!!! Thank you for taking him in! Glad he's starting to feel better, and I hope everything comes back clear so he can go and make some friends :)

    Poor little boy. My heart goes out to him 2 of my three horses are rescued. One from abuse and the other from neglect. The neglect (Serria) is blind in one eye and has several scars on her legs. Every horse deserves a safe home.

    He looks so happy! It must feel so good to be able to run and stretch his legs. I hope he continues to get better!
