I don't know to cry or to laugh, or just hit myself with a hammer, or close my head in a door, or shoot myself or hang myself...
Teddy feels fabulous.. he was running, and cantering correctly full speed.... but that caused some problems...
Grand is lame in 2 legs now.. his hind leg hurts.. I don't know where, I don't know what happened... nothing is warm, nothing is swollen (yet) but I put MSM cream all over that hind leg, put him in a box to rest for a while, while Teddy calms down.. and will take him out later.
Vet will come over tomoro to assess the situation, see if there is any swelling or anything.. she also suggested that I might need to split them up..

Here you go. LOADS. Sorry for the quality though - its quite dark in rain here and my lens is not the lightest when zoomed in.l.

Teddy (aka Gvidons) was going nuts. I guess he felt awesome a few hours after his massage and feed with cough medicine..

Barely ever see him stretch out like this

You can see the difference of one hand in height - Teddy's neck goes along Grand's back Grand is wary; he knows Teddy is up to no good.

And he is right - Teddy explodes again, trying to make Grand move too.

But Grand is totally not keen on it.. as you can see his left hind is already resting - he was not willing to walk with me later.. I hope he was just kicked somewhere in the muscle, nothing more serious please.

But Teddy's owner said he can see a difference in 10 days for his weight, he has filled out more..

With such face, our dear friend, The Teddy grumbles about that he runs alone, and Grand won't budge...

I had some things to take out of this awesome confo pic, and told my friend I will be fine with anything, as long as its clear and no pink fluffy unicorns around in the pic..
This is the edit that has take out some things from the background (tyres for jumps etc)
IMG_6823 (640x427).jpg
And here is her fun edit, to bother me..
And he is cantering off again, and I am very pleased to see correct canter :) as he used to crossfire even when free running about..
IMG_6858 (640x427).jpg
What he manages to do with his legs I shall never understand.
IMG_6860 (640x427).jpg
2 minute naptime..
IMG_6881 (640x426).jpg
And off he is again..
IMG_6884 (640x426).jpg
"Catch me if you can" or "I believe I can fly"
IMG_6889 (640x427).jpg
Struttin' his stuff.

And the last few from today... took over 300, had to cut out all the blurry ones, all the dark ones, all the same ones... and cut it down to as little as possible..
Sometimes he trots nicely too
IMG_7001 (640x439).jpg
And recently he has started to stretch..
IMG_7013 (640x532).jpg
And is interested when he sees someone arrive (Pardon the mess around him, its remains of a jump and his ball, which he ignores... )
IMG_7046 (640x427).jpg

I would actually rather he was pushing the ball around, not Grand, especially if he is clearly in pain..

I still don't know what Teddy is capable of doing with his legs.

Soon time to check on Grand.

They are both mighty fine looking horses.

Thank you :) They might not appreciate it, but I do.
I am very hopeful that no matter what struggle we have now, in the end we will all be very happy :)

Teddy's lungs sound clear, Grand's knee is swollen.
Teddy will still get his syrup, and also a lot more work, when I get around it. All day waiting for wet didn't get to move him, but he ran around a bit when I took Grand inside to eat, dry up a little so I can put the msm cream on him to help with the swelling.
Grand seems to have been kicked just above the knee, so the swelling has gone down around the knee. We have homeopathic painkiller injections to do, nothing too strong, but to help him heal and feel better. Massaging the leg, putting the cream on, and working Teddy so hard, that he has no energy left to bother Grand.
And their shelter is fully connected to the pasture and looks good. They rather sit in the rain though..
