No foot no horse no George

George is an ocean going liner. Or maybe a caterpillar driven tank, or an articulated lorry that has lost its kink. Whatever, he is great at going in a straight line. Takes his time to come to a stop and is reasonably rubbish at turns, especially considering he is supposed to be a cow horse.

Unfortunately we are in a bit of a spiral and I don't think it is going the right way. His feet are terrible, which makes his back, shoulders, loin and butt sore. So he finds it hard to hold himself together, which makes it hard to do any work with him. But we need to do the work with him to make him easier to handle so we can do more work with him to help him mend.

So we have decided if we can to take him to Rockley Farm, which is a specialist rehab centre. They will be in a better position to give him an environment which will help his feet. When his feet are better then we can work on the rest.

Hey! Just stumbled upon your blog and was very interested because I'm a crazy barefoot person too ;) Hope George's feet get better soon.
