IT WORKED!!!! I rode Sam on Tuesday and he felt so much softer, bendier, rounder. It is amazing!!!!! I on the other hand am still sore!
So that is the great news. Bad news is that I can't get the farrier out until hopefully Tuesday and his shoe is loose!!!!! I am contemplating buying some farrier tools on the weekend and taking it off and putting a boot on him.
I am also going to have a go at clipping on the weekend. He really needs a trace or blanket clip. He is just so hairy and I can't ride until the afternoons and it is getting darker earlier and earlier.
I'll be sure to take heaps of photos though!!!!
