The Ups and Downs of Horse Ownership

Sometimes I get really frustrated because I want to show you the great videos of Nathy but due to vet bills and ongoing hoof problems I haven’t been able to pay for better hosting. I’m not complaining, I wouldn’t give Nathy up for the world and I will battle away to keep him healthy and happy.

I would love to be able to show you more of him other than pictures, so you get to see his personality as I do. I’ve decided to get onto my host and see if I can do something about this untill I can upgrade my hosting.

While I’m here I’ll give you an update as to where we are at. Nathy has thrush thanks to our wonderful paddocks, and his hooves are getting pretty sore, I have been treating him with both apple cider vinegar and Paradise Nutrients Hoof Rehab and it seems to be making a difference.

I have a trimmer coming on Wednesday and a Chiro coming in 2 weeks to see if he’s sore anywhere else. The trimmer is going to help me make a plan to manage his hooves and once we get that sorted we can start some groundwork. Other than that he’s doing great, I’ve put him PN minerals and he’s holding his weight much better than he ever has.
