Me gots another updateeee! :)
Robbie is doing fantastic, splint is off and he is being hand walked more and more every day!
We had a little "incident" last week...went for a walk in the arena (per vet's orders) and Robbie decided to run away. He broke free, ripped around the arena, gave a little buck and then stopped and waited for us to go get him and put him back in his stall. Normally, I would've been pissed (not to mention probably had a heart attack) but he decided to do all of these shenanigans 100% SOUND
. I think that was his way of telling us we are "protecting" him too much because after his escape, he's been soooo much happier and calmer haha.
But we called the vet out right after he played in the arena to check him over and everything is going great. He's healing faster than anyone would've thought, the cut is completely healed with skin and hair growing over it. :) So she said the splint could come off and just to keep the leg bandaged with no bows and standing wraps. We are also allowed to hand walk him 3x a day, 2 laps around the arena. He is so happy now he gets to go on daily "adventures" haha.
Soooooo...next week the bandages come off during the day and back on during night so he can get used to having no support on that leg. And then *hopefully* he'll be outside in a small stall/paddock March 1st.
YAY!! Once he's been outside for a while, I can start riding him at a walk. I can't wait!!
Now pictures haha.
Oh I'll be pretty then. :)
AND I HAVE A VIDEO!!!
Nothing too exciting as he's just walking :) but at the start of all this I never would have thought he's walk again.
