I gave Cinny a day off yesterday. I figure even with trying to keep him in work, he still needs a day off once in a while, and he was turned out all day with his best buddy.
Today is the 7th day of meds. I am starting to see a difference already. He is much calmer and will even work quietly in our front arena which he has never really done before even when he was on a double dose of SmartCalm every day. He is currently not taking ANY calming meds, only the Doxy, Concentrated Liver Happy and Next Level Joint Supplement
. He has been off bute for 3 days.
With the Pessoa I see him starting to move out and be a bit more forward without my asking him, although he is still playing with where he wants his head and stretching his back. Today was only the 3rd day with it and I'm sure he will keep improving. He seems more relaxed in his gaits, and much much more willing to work. I didn't have to prod him today and I had trouble keeping him in a trot. His transitions seem super smooth, however so that's a plus.
Anyway, I see a big difference since the first video, and even the video a few days ago with his first day on the Pessoa. I am so happy that he seems to be improving so quickly.
