The battle with my awful feet continues. It’s been a hard week so I’m handing over to my Mum to shed some light on my sad situation 🐎 (I’m still super photogenic though) 💚 A couple of weeks ago Merrill got a very special farrier and his two farrier friends (that’s right we went from farriers running away at the sight of his hooves to having 3 experienced pros making a lot of loving fuss about them) to come and give him some very special new #formahoof shoes. He loved them. He went from being extremely footsore to completely sound in a matter of hours. Back on the grass he was in his element. Unfortunately less than a week later he came down lame. The lamest we had ever seen him. We came back from holiday and have been nursing him since. He is still very lame. Presenting laminitic we have had numerous x-rays but with no rotation and 4 bute, 40 paracetamol and 10ml sedalin (ordered by the vet) a day only just keeping Merrill happy enough to eat, we don’t know what the next steps will be but we are doing everything we can to help him recover. It’s been a teary week for this absolute gem of a horse. Any advice and well wishes much appreciated x #horsesofinstagram#exracehorse#stablelife#boxrest#lamehorse#remedialfarriery#laminitis#thoroughbred
This big guy finally sold 💘 We had a good 4 years together, but he found a great home as a trail horse, with awesome people❤️ It’s a bittersweet feeling but I’m happy he’s off to new adventures out on the trail where he belongs 🏇🏻
