I didn't post on here that Pyro had come up lame about 3 weeks ago, the night before a dressage show. Apparently he had popped a splint? in his front right pastern. He was on stall rest for 2 weeks, with a sweat wrap every other night. Well after he wasn't showing any signs of getting better, we turned him out in the pasture because he was becoming unhappy - nipping, pawing and being really pushy when you took him out. Well, tonight I had to do chores(i feed horses, do water tanks and clean stalls 2 nights a week) but before I started, I decided he needed a good brushing and an assessing of his leg. The bump actually looked bigger, so I got all worried and called my mom and my trainer. My trainer told me to just put the wrap back on it and stick him in the stall, but to trot him in the arena to see how bad he was. Well, I went into the indoor, and *finally* got him to trot... NO LIMPING! I was so excited! I took him back in the barn, put on his NEW splint boots(lol - I bought them the day I bought his wraps and medicine xD) and decided to lunge him a little bit. He was fine! No limping, no neck-bobbing. I stopped him and I cried a little(i'm hormonal, obviously), and then he bit me and I slapped him(he ruined my moment xD). Anyways, just wanted to share the amazing news! I'm so excited, I was getting a little discouraged for a while. But I've also had the chance to ride an amazing lesson horse, Burt. He was the Horse of the Year for some dressage club or something? He was trained through 3rd level, but is super hard to control... but I finally got his trust after about 4 lessons and he listens to me now. I think I'm going to continue riding him and maybe do a half lease, he has a lot to teach :]
