Stevenson,
Vet said light riding is Ok, and encouraged us to trot/canter him free-lunging to keep the incision open. They were closing up very fast and causing some problems. He's much much better now that he's getting more exercise (in addition to being out 24/7)

It'll be 7 days tomorrow since the surgery.

Really? We always had to work our gelded horses .. either lunging or riding. It definitely helps with swelling/edema..

quit thinking like a man ....

^^Agreed, when I got Dobe and Jet, they were both studs, 3 and 5 years old. We got them riding decent, then had them gelded, then kept riding them on vet's orders. Of course, nothing too terribly strenuous while they were healing, but some nice trail rides. Neither one of them swelled even a little and they both healed up quickly.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He has the silliest expressions! Glad to hear he's healing up well.

I didn't read the whole thread, but did you buy him or have him since he was a wee baby?

I purchased him last month, but the farm I board at originally bred him. So he was there as a weanling until sold. The gentleman who had purchased him him was liquidating his assets and called the breeder (My BO) and said "Come get him or he's going to auction" So I told her I'd take him. My BO didn't want him to go to auction, and she didn't need another horse but would have purchased him and resold him as a stallion/show prospect if I hadn't bought him.

Yesterday Sammy got to go out with two geldings. It's the first time he's been with other horses since he was a weanling.








He's under strict supervision as the testosterone isn't completely gone.

He's out with m yearling (The black and white) and a pony, Captain Pickles.

Pickles is the herd leader for now. He makes sure Sammy does not do any funny business with the yearling. That's his baby and he's very protective of him. They've been together since the yearling (Stryder) was a weanling, and Pickles chases Sammy off every time he gets too close.

The other two don't get fly masks anymore. They've figured out how to take them off. Stryder's hell bent on getting Sammy's fly mask and break-away halter off, but Pickles won't let him do more than give him a sniff.

Not sure if this video will work. But this is what happens when Sammy and Stryder get too close.

BO sent me this picture at work.

Someone is trying to get Sammy's fly mask off. I think I see teeth marks on the nose of it.



He kind of looks like he's wearing a Hannibal mask.
