Things have REALLY looked up for me and Poco sense I changed barns. He has gained and astounding 183 pounds and (now weighs 1193). His attitude is remarkable sense we have changed barns. He is back to the old spunky, frisky Poco I used to have. He still needs some more muscle but we are working on that. He recently pulled his deep digital flexor tendon out in the pasture one day and is now on stall rest. I called my farrier up from Virginia. He worked with Poco for over 3 years and done amazing work with him. The farriers down here have proved to be a pain in my side as they all are screwing up in some way or another. Before Pocos injury he was getting rode 5-6 times a week anywhere from 2 hours to 10 hours. Arena work to extensive trail rides. What I am wondering, is if I should go back to trimming his heels all the way down and putting a 3 degree roller wedge on him. (Open Performance Roller Wedge, sold by Grand Circuit). THis was the advice my farrier in Virginia gave me. Poco is doing great with his recovery and I was told to put the wedges back on him to prevent any further injury to his tendon and to relieve the stress off of it. Poco is very flat footed and have sounds like a camel when he walks do to this. When his heels do grow they turn under. Requiring him to be shod ever 4-5 weeks to prevent any soreness. Any advice on pulled tendons, wedged shoes, and the recovery would be greatly appreciated!
