Update on Lady Pony with huge cresty neck
I havn't been on here for awhile but wanted to post an update on lady my mini pony that I got for a rescue project and pet. She has been on Thyroid l and on a diet and doing well. I was disapointed for a long time because I did not see a huge difference so I quit feeling and checking and its been another month and I went out and was scratching her neck and her lumps/cresty neck are significantly smaller. I talked to a vet in pennsylvania who specializes in cresty neck or IR horses and I am also gonna start her on heiro product that is supposed to help alot.I am so excited she is starting to trim down some. Farrier says feet are looking good and ready to trim her every four weeks. I am waiting for my muzzle to come in mail and then she will be turned out with my big horses so she can graze this winter but in small amounts, or eat hay with them all she wants but little at a time. At night I am gonna put her up and take muzzle off so she can get a break.
