:) thanks guys!! I can't believe how long this has gone on for...I forget what it feels like to ride haha.

Got another update though! It's nothing too big but tomorrow (March 1st) Robbie gets to start going outside during the day for turnout! Yayyy! Finally he can stop causing trouble, escaping and driving himself crazy!! He only gets to go out for a couple hours in a REALLY small paddock but it's better than sitting in a stall. :)
He's also been awesome for hand-walking 3x a day, still super sound and his "spark" is definitely coming back (not like it was really gone but he was definitely depressed there for a while haha). His leg is no longer wrapped during the day and everything looks greeat - no sign of buckling over! Hopefully he won't do anything stupid for his first turnout tomorrow and he can start being a horse again. :)


Oh, and if everything goes according to plan...he gets to be ridden in 3 weeks. yayyyyy!

That is fantastic news. He is such a beautiful horse. Glad he is good for hand walking. Hunter is a brat and was rearing etc. I think he is immune to ace.
