Rescue: Boston, he's a new man!
I got a 23 year old rescue about a month ago, with bloodlines that were absolutely amazing. So its weird that he would end up a rescue, but it happens all the time. Anyways, he suffered from so many issues. He has laminits, lameness, arthritis, fungal skin infection, white line disease, hoof cracking, the list goes on and on. Well, we have cleared his laminitis, lameness, have him on arthritis medication, hoof cracks are getting better, & we are bleaching the white line disease. Still haven't got rid of that skin infection, that's my question.. Any quick remedies to get rid of it? My friend talked to a Thoroughbred breeder and he said listerine and water. She said it worked for her, should I try that, or what?
And again with Boston. He has come so far. He used to be abused, if you put your hand up to his ears he shies away cause he has been hit so many times, but I am earning his trust and respect. So many people told be he would never make it, that it was easier to put him down. Well, after being in a stall for 6 days due to his laminitis. I took him to the arena and he flew around the place. Here he first was barely walking and now was galloping and trotting with a slight limp. I cried, I was soo happy.
Have you ever had a rescue make such an amazing trasition? Even though it seemed as though it were impossible? Now we are going to show what he was bred and trained for, Western Pleasure at AQHA shows! I could never be more happy. I may not have changed the world, but I changed his world.
