This morning I woke up with a stone in my stomach knowing we had to face another vet appointment. As mentioned earlier, today was the day we did the check up on Mr.Grumpys back and he got a sports massage.
Walking to pick up Mr.Grumpy from his box I had all kind of nightmare scenarios in my head with him biting, kicking or going on his backlegs, luckily nothing of it came true. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Mr.Grumpy so sweet before in my life. I even closed my eyes when the vet decided to stand behind his hindlegs and started pulling on his back, thinking he was going to get kicked so badly, but nothing happened.
He was stiff/blocked serveral places on his body especially knees/neck and hind which now got released again. The back got a green light, but I did get a whole list of things that has to be done both stretching wise as well as riding wise. He will forever be a horse with a manual, but at least we can go ahead with riding and knowing that he is now going to feel better feels good. For the next few days we will have to go for walks before we can start riding again.
So overall good news today. I had absolutely nothing to worry about when it came to the massage, think the mister enjoyed it. Maybe I should try shaving him next. Hoho
