Not your average OTTB given another chance at a new life and a mostly average busy Mom who never gave up on her dream to ride again. An unlikely pair at an unlikely time, learning to event and loving life!
Sorry I am delayed in updating about the show they will be posted soon. The reason I have been neglecting my update is because I have gotten absolutely hooked on a blog I have been following for a while but started back at the begining of her blog and haven't been able stop reading. It is We are Flying Solo and if you are a wanna be eventer or have any interest in reading about it I highly recommend starting at the begining. It is an awesome read and a great story about evente79 and her horse Solo. You can do as I have done these past 3 days cuddle up on the couch with a warm cup of coffee and indulge my addiction of all things horse.
Anyways she has some fantastic posts on horse boots including a very informational video that you can find here . I am need of some advice on the subject and begged her help. So I am posting some pics of the problems my Steady has with his legs. So here they are my big guys sexy legs.
Front left there is a healed over lump on the fetlock. I think this is a recurring problem because of the lump.
There is that lump again
Mom I am not amused.
The definition of truth and heart is in those eyes.
Oh wait we're talking about legs.
Right hind seems to get the wosrt of it
These are front boots that I use now. From watching the video posted on WaFS I learned that the only function these really serve is puncture wounds. Which I think is better but does not protect from concussive blows which is important especially if they are recurring.
Also remember that Steady raced for 8 years so some of the marks on his legs are old wounds from his days at the track but he is sound and has been since I have owned him. Though I think part of him staying solidly sound for so many years has alot to do with his incredible tolerence for everything, including pain. So there you have it Steady's legs so I would LOVE all the help I can get to protect them the best I can.
