Boomer Update

Boomer's doing good.  This morning he had a three-way grooming session with Reggie and Paj at the magical spot where the runs, pasture and paddock come together.  Then I hand-walked him in the dressage arena.  David walks him down the lane, but the dressage arena works better for me.  I don't have to worry about him trying to graze, which is bad for my collar bone and his neck.  We walk the tests, with me saying silly things like "German corner here, big guy".

Today is the last day of medication.  Tuesday we will confer with Dr. Gary, but we feel confident that  he's truly better.

He is beautiful! I'm glad he's feeling better, and hope the consult goes well.

Gosh! He is just so handsome. I hope that the vet says that all is well. Please let us know.

But, even more important, when are you due for a "vet check?"

Terry said...

Sept 2 for me, Louise. I'd feel better if Dr. Gary could treat me too!

Oh my, I just read how Boomer got hurt. What in the world was he thinking!? Sometimes the smallest of things will spook one of the donkeys or horses here and all I can do is shake my head once I figure out what it was. Glad to hear he is feeling better.

Oh Good Terry! He will be back to health soon..no more departures of mind and leaping fences!
My latest fall, as you know...was fron a mother duckie and her chicks...-simply floating- on the water! Horses...man...we love them as they try to kill us!

Good news..now to find out about YOU!
