I figured I'd let you all know what's going on with Chinga. As some of you know, about a month ago my beloved horse became very ill and we were all left very in the dark to what was going on. Finally, after many tests and him spending about six days at the vets, we finally worked out what was going on and after some intensive treatment, he was able to come home.
So, a very strict routine and diet was put into place, and a lot of changes were made.
Although, for the next month it was consistent feeds, medication and a lot of rest. Which also meant that we were not attending some of our biggest competitions for the year. Finally, after a month we took him back to the vets, they said he was looking great and that his gained a lot of the large amount of weight he lost back. Which was excellent and he was able to slowly return to light work.
Right now, we're having a bit of a set back with him (which was expected) his lost some weight again and got a case of mild colic last night. Though, his alright and already this morning seemed a lot happier. Obviously, we're keeping a very close eye on him and letting the vet know what's going on.
I also have some photos, these are taken after he returned home from the vets (already, had he gained quite a bit of weight back). I need recent photos as well, the improvements look great!
