Pea Sees The Vet
If you've been following my blog lately, you will know that Pea has been a bit stiff behind and I've been a bit paranoid so put him on the vet list. Well, today was the day and it couldn't have gone any more different than what I expected it to go!
I trotted Pea up just normally and then trotted him a few times following a leg flexion. Alex (the vet) said that he was slightly more stiff after the flexion but nothing major so nothing to worry about at all - more that it's quite normal. We then popped him on the lunge and seeing as Pea has been in all night and it was way past his turnout time he felt the need to just bugger off round the lunge refusing to come back to trot! He also showed just how good his back and legs were feeling but a good few bucks for extra measure!
So, for now, he's going to have hind shoes put on in the next few weeks and be worked as normal and we'll see how we go from there. If he's still not great in a month then he'll see the vet again and might have a steroid injection..
Thanks for reading,
