Arie is still doing really well since his injury We are getting a lot of stall rehabilitation foundation work done, still some issues, but I have to remember that he's gone from being out 24/7 to now being cooped up 24/7, and he can be one cranky horse! He's had the cast on for a little over 2 weeks and he seems to be walking on his foot better and better all the time I hardly ever see him take a gimpy step, it does bother him for a minute when he gets up from laying down, but then he's fine. I'm also glad that he isn't chewing at it, which I'm surprised he isn't because he's such a mouthy horse by nature.
I spent the entire day with him today. Cleaned his stall, pulled his mane (it was really long!), banged his tail, gave him a full out groom and was planning on clipping him but my clipper didn't have any juice left So he still has his beard and fuzzy ears I enjoyed it and so did he. We did carrot stretches and worked on backing by the tail around corners which was a lot of fun. He caught on quick! I can tell he's dying to play and learn again.
I can't wait to start working with him again, I'm going through some serious withdrawl! I know I'm going to be nervous the first time he goes past a walk, but the vet isn't concerned so I shouldn't be either. I think he'll be really ready to play and stretch his legs. I'll need to have my video camera ready!
