Hero: October 28

This week, I wanted to keep things low key so that Hero could continue in light work, mostly at the walk. We did a bit of Roynd Penning, Desensitizing, Yielding the HQ & FQ, Flexing, Lunging Stage 1, & Sending, & Circle Driving. He seems to be brightening up a little bit.

I reached out to the local vet to discuss Hero's symptoms to see whether she thought we should pull blood with her or go somewhere dedicated to horses, but she's been out of the office so hopefully I'll hear something on Monday.

Thankfully in that time, his legs have nearly returned to normal aside from the bump he arrived with on that right hind. His sheath has just a small amount of edema present, but has also improved. I'll continue to monitor for any changes one way or the other & let you know what I learn from the vet.

Vitamin E arrived on Friday & I've started him on 3 oz (3000 iu) & may bump him up to 4 ozs. If he is deficient, then it's recommended those horses received 2000-5000 iu. After a few weeks, I'll drop him back down to 2 oz & if doing well we'll try 1 oz.

Today, we received the first bit of snow for the season.

Next week, pending what the vet says, I'll likely go ahead & get Hero used to the surcingle potentially the saddle.

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.
