Flash: April 19

It was a short but enlightening week here for Flash:

Because it's never fun to assume horses are familiar with loading in a slant load trailer & have loading or unloading trouble when you have somewhere to get to, we spent some time practicing to ensure we wouldn't have any issues when it was time to get on the road. He did relatively well. He was a bit resistant at first, but it didn't take long to send him onto the trailer. He was a little nervous about shutting the slant but was more confident with repetition. He backed off quite well. It took a little bit to get him on the morning of our trip as the stud was in the first slant making a bit of noise.

On Tuesday, we went up to see Jen at Knotty Equine. As I suspected, we found a lot of what is causing Flash's behavior on the ground.

Here are the notes that I took:

- cranial shear

- poll locked at 90°

- C3-7 & T1

- C5-7 blown to the R

- pelvis tilted forward

- esophageal torsion

- vagal impingement

Jen made a lot of good progress with Flash & he had several good releases. We hypothesized that he might have been driven by the Amish, got scared, took off & ended up doing a somersault to cause the issues in his head & neck.

Next week's update will be posted on Friday.

I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
