Always been labelled as 'lazy' and was hard work to ride.
Well we took his Cytek shoes off, the carers worked hard to clear the thrush and managed his rehab/new work load carefully.
Now he happily hacks for an hour plus - nearly all on the road and his feet are beautiful.
But the real upside? He now walks out with such power that his carers report:
He makes our hips ache his stride is so long and powerful. And he no longer slips on the road. The trot - amazing!
Big as he is I wonder what this boy could have achieved if he'd been iron free all his life. Anyway - he is now and he is blossoming :-) makes my day. Once again great people work hard to get the best for their horse. Good on them.
