Rowdy's appointment!

Postby Jen Smith on Thu Jun 07, 2007 2:26 pm

I had some work done on Rowdy yesterday. He had quite a few things going on with him that were other causes of pain other than his feet. Everything went very well, so much that he fell asleep many times during the session. I will have my farrier come to assess his feet and another body appointment in 3-4 weeks depending on how he does.

He has made friends here already. My miniature seems to still think he need to tell Rowdy that his is top dog and that he really is bigger than everyone thinks he is. So all in all Rowdy will have a least a few months off till we can put him all back together again. He is very content with the extra attention and body massages he gets 2x a day from me.

Becky was so nice to get the picture of my mini mare up next to my name, I really did try! :lol:

I will have to try and get some pictures of all the other horses up so you can see all of Rowdy's new friends. Even the cats go say hi to him. Till later.
Jen :D

I am a big fan of equine bodywork. Especially if they have been dealing with lameness issues for a while, those issues create soreness in other spots and the bodywork really helps them to feel 100% again. Sounds like Rowdy won the owner lottery!

I had no idea! It would explain why he moved funny, even though he never seemed to go lame. Hopefully this will really open up and make him a comfortable ride! Glad to hear he enjoys it!

Tiara - here is a really good informative site. This is my best friend's.

None of us used to know all of this stuff, it's great how you keep learning more and more as you go along. I learned about chiropractic, for example, when my ex-bf bought this little TB mare in 1993 who bit and kicked everybody. I tried to figure out why and realized her back was sore. I had her adjusted...which was VERY newfangled back then and everybody at the barn totally made fun of me. But you know what? It totally worked. 3 months down the line, that mare never did any of that stuff again...was not crabby at all.

Massage 2x a day is what I was thinking! I would love that. His back end is still holding as of this morning though. Still walking much better. He is starting to carry his legs under him instead of outward. Still workin' on the front, but in time I hope it just gets better and better.
