TR: April 19

It was a short, but good week here for TR:

While I imagined he'd probably been hauled in a slant load trailer before, it's never fun to assume & 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 & 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 pretty well.

On Tuesday, we went up to see Jen at Knotty Equine.

Here are the notes that I took:

- R Poll

- R hind (kidney, ureter, bladder spasm, potential bean)

- Front of withers

- Double diaphragm spasm

- Restricted stride on front - circulatory, tight sore back & neck

Jen made a lot of good progress with TR & he seemed to enjoy the work & gave us several good releases throughout the session. He was a bit touchy in the girth & flank area at times.

In preparation for our trip down to TX & to make things easier for the gal who will feed & check on horses while we're gone, I moved TR to a dry lot. I had hoped to be able to integrate him with the other geldings, but he claimed another gelding & wouldn't let the other horses near, so instead, he gets to share a fenceline with them for now.

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.
