Last Saturday he got to go on a trip to the vet clinic again. I swear it feels like I haul him somewhere every weekend. He went in for his second session of acupuncture with Dr. M. We're hoping the acupuncture helps loosen up his tense neck. Since his accident in November, he's always tilted his head to the left. Since his acupuncture, he's slowly getting a more "normal" head carriage. Although it's said that he may never have a completely normal head carriage, I'd like to make him as comfortable as possible. You can feel the tense tendons running from behind his left ear down into his shoulder. Here's a little video of his session. You may not want to watch if you don't like moving needles.
And yesterday he got a visit from the farrier again. His hooves are in pretty cruddy shape so we're working in getting his hooves corrected. His feet grow FAST. @.@ At 4 weeks we were pushing it, so the farrier came out yesterday after having just come out 2 weeks ago. Henny's gotten very good about standing for the farrier, which I'm glad for. I can't say the same for the other gelding who got his feet trimmed yesterday LOL.
Annnd cause he's just so cute, here's some pictures I took over the past couple weeks. :)
After his acupuncture last weekend
After his bath a couple weeks ago
What he thought of said bath
"Gettin' reeeeaaaal tired of standing here, mom"
The friendly donkeys in the pasture across from my neighborhood. I think the one on the far left is pwegnant :)
Practicing his mare glare. He's getting good at it! You can also see in this pic how his top lip is now pulled permanently to the right as a result of his accident. Cutie!
