he has nurological issues. when this started he could not feel his legs at all. once he was able to he was lame. he was NOT lame before hand. treated with IV DMSO on the 27th of last month and HUGE improvement. as of this week compleat relaps. also headhsakers is painfull, he has given himself a fatal neck injury from it and i cant seam to get head shakers to stop. he can hardly walk much less live at this point. can afford almost $300 in IV DMSO monthly to get him able to maybe walk. we are donating him to the vet school here. its $400 to have him put down there. we get to be with him and he is sedated first. then they do a necropsy and he gets to teach the next generation of not handling it well. if it was my 34, 28 or even 22 year old i could maybe since it more expected. not the 12 year old. he has been fine with my trim and getting slowly better (except being able to get the heels to uncontract). was baffled when he went dead lame after 2 or so weeks post trim then nurologic then still lame. im thinking since he relapes so badly they are related.

ill ask if they can look at his hooves in depth and see if there was anything odd going on in there. they will be focusing on his neck a bit since that would be the cause of all of this. or he has some form of EDM and there was nothing i could have done for him anyway. i have suspected for years he may have been slightly neurologic but i was not ready for this level of break down and so fast out of the blue. he is spending his last week being turned out with rocket and begra or on the grass and getting all the treats. the treat ban is lifted.
