Havent been on to give any updates on Rodeo in quite some time. Back in February, we moved him back to his old barn in West Virginia. They kept him separated for a week, and then turned him out. Theres only been 2 new horses since he was there 2years ago! Didnt work him at all the few weeks, wanted to let him settle in, well the second week out in the pasture, he came in with a puncture. Ended up having the vet come out, they gave him a tetanus shot, told me to keep it wrapped, and just to keep an eye on it. Lameness and swelling continued for a few weeks, but went away, and shortly after the puncture healed up nicely. He started to not show any lameness, and was turned back out in the pasture with the other horses. Was out there for close to a month.
I ended up hopping on him bareback on day to get him back into light work, a week later, on his birthday he came up dead lame again. Hasnt gotten any better or worse since. So an xray is scheduled next week.
Other than the whole leg situation, Rodeo is doing great! Hes shedding out, happy, energetic, friendly, and the same goofy horse as he has always been! :) Will keep everyone updated in what the xrays show. Keep your fingers crossed that its nothing too serious
