    Update Pics Of Nelson

    Today I went out to the barn to ride, and I got some shots of the Big Guy to share with ya

    He's doing so much better *knocks on wood* and is looking alot better, but still has a way to go.

    He needs to gain about 100 more lbs, but I am pretty pleased with how he looks in relation to everything that has happened to him this much. He needs to get his muscle back, but that'll come over time.

    Here he is with his buddy Bourbon:

    Here we are in the isle way getting ready to head out:

    This is that Collegiate that I am borrowing for now. Love this saddle. It is Pommel low right now because it has the wide gullet in it. I am really padding his back up since he has absolutely no topline what-so-ever.

    Here he is after our 1 hour walk ride:

    Here is his leg, today. The injury was what? Jan 1st?

    It is very unique isn't it :) Everyone who's met him in the past, recognizes him years later due to it.

    Makes him one of a kind :)

    WOW! He is looking great after a serious leg injury and a severe colic episode. I'm so happy he's doing better!

    Thanks Drew! His leg looks fabulous doesn't it, compared to what it was?! There is a smidge bit of heat in his hock still, on the inside, but other than that, nothing.

    Still a bit of swelling as well, my vet said to sweat it and see what that does, and he's starting his Adequan tomorrow and I put him on an oral suppliment as well that has Yucca and MSN and HA in it. I hope that'll help with the swelling.

    At the walk, he moves very nicely. The indoor was packed today because Jump Teams started and Nelson got alot of compliments today, and how amazed everyone is at where he is now *the barn of 40 people have been involved since day one*. He is moving smoothly, tracking up - I'm very happy.

    I know he's still ribby, but he has his face stuffed in a round bale all day during his daytime turn out, and then in his stall he has hay being thrown to him throughout the night.


    Thanks Savvy!

    Adequan worked MIRACLES with Ginisee. Hopefully it will do the same for your ol' guy

    *HUGS* Savvy! Thank you :) Your kindness and friendship means alot to both Nelson and I.

    Drew - I am excited about getting him started - but my pocket book is not. Lol. I was going to get a full box for $200 something..but my Vet said it isn't a good idea, because Adequan is not meant to be a long term, permenant thing.

    I was told that Adequan is supposed to be a "repair" IM, for only a few months *like 4 - 5* then when significant signs of improvement show, you move your horse off of Adequan and then onto a maintenance IM or suppliment.

    Have you heard that before? I asked a few people at the barn and they said "yes, that is true" but I've never heard it before.
