*progress intensifies*

*charges through wall* AT LONG LAST. PROGRESS!!!!!!

So the day before yesterday a vet that was coming up to work at the local horse trials came out to the ranch where Mudpie and I live/work, and I finally got Mudpie evaluated again. I had spent all of the previous day and that morning trying to get the ultrasound images from our previous vet, but to no avail. They insisted that it was completely impossible and that they had no way to transfer those images in any capacity. After the receptionist practically shouted at me, I gave up, though it still strikes me as odd that there was LITERALLY NO WAY to transfer ultrasound images through a disk/email/printing/etc (how do people insuring their horses get those records?). Anywho, while it would have been preferable to have those, the other vet gathered enough from the records without them, and I never have to use vet #1 again. So hooray!!

Mudpie was a complete monster (9 months of stall rest excuses this) but we worked through it, and we were able to get the rehab plan that we should have had in January!! It's frustrating that this couldn't happen sooner, but I can't do anything about that, and now it is happening... so... :)

Either this evening or tomorrow I will get my boss/trainer's help with giving Mudpie the IM shot of ace, and then we will get to begin walking under saddle! That makes me really, really excited!!!!!!!!! Mudpie got new shoes today (this is an important factor, since while barefoot stepping on a piece of gravel entails him just about falling over) and we decided to go without pads for now to see how he does. I now have a very good vet to correspond with (the downside is that she lives in Mexico and is therefore not at all close to us) and I will be speaking with her regularly about his progress, and I get to ask her all of my questions!!

Mudpie will probably get re-evaluated, and possibly ultrasounded, when she comes back for the next horse trials, which is a mega big plus plus hooray EXCITE!!!!!

Sorry for the complete lack of detail, but VENTING ABOUT PROGRESS FEELS GOOD!! :3

Also, I found out that Mudpie is actually 10 years old (I was only 3 years off) and that he desperately needs his teeth floated!! Competent veterinarians are a very wonderful thing!!!!!

Also the vet called him a cute mover even though he was 1/5 lame both directions!

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

What a beautiful boy! He reminds me of Zane, the horse in my avatar.

I missed your previous posts so I don't know what is wrong with him, but I'm so glad that after 9 months he can start riding again, even if it's at a walk with Ace.
