Just to let everyone know...I am now confidently confirming Snickers as having EPSM, not just a tentative diagnosis. I backed off the fat in her diet for a little over a week to see what would happen. Her legs became twisted noodles again. So, the high-fat diet clearly is her saving grace. Even though she progressed so well, people had said that maybe it was only because she was stronger and more balanced....well, no....not so much. This will be a life-long commitment for us.
On a most awesome note....I took her to her final two parade practices this past weekend before the chaos of the 4th Of July parade in Coronado this Thursday. She has already been qualified, but was needed to help give confidence to two other horses that were trying to become qualified....lol. We loaded up all of her 'spooky' gear and showed them how it was done!!! Such a good girl she is. Love her.
