It was a short, but good week here for Cactus:
On Tuesday, we went up to see Jen at Knotty Equine. It's always neat to see how the horses allow us to peel back the layers a bit more each time they're worked on. As always, Cactus loved every minute of his time with Jen.
Here are the notes that I took:
- pelvic girdle (worse on R side) --- correlates to what Dr. Kendal had felt back in November
- sciatic x2
- stifle/hock (hind stay apparatus)
Jen gave me these exercises to do with Cactus:
- Hind Hip Drop/Bounce
- Tail Exercises
- Belly Lift/Cat Stretch
Jen made a lot of good progress with Cactus. Due to Cactus' conformation, it's likely that some of these things may never be "fixed," but they can be strengthened & improved upon.
Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
