First ride

Sorry I haven't updated in a bit. Rowdy's feet are getting much better, still concerned with some leg issues, but he's getting there. He is also still having trouble with his breathing but that is better than when he came as well. I haven't really addressed any of that due to the fact that he's doing a detox first. My hubby Ron took him on his first ride on Sat. He did really great. Found out that he is very afraid of water, once he was able to keep getting closer he walked right thru the creek. I ponied my daughter's horse just in case it might be to much for him. Good thing I did because after the water crossing it sounded like he was going to have a asthma attack, so I had Ron take his gear off Rowdy and put it on Belle so he could have a break. All in all it was a good outing for him and it gave me an idea of how much I need to work on his breathing. Sorry there's no pictures but I can't seem to get them on here. So till next time.
