Every day is getting better

Every day Sam seems to be getting better and better. This morning I moved him too his new paddock which he seemed to like. He had a good canter around, buck, jump, roll and then chatted to the yearling over the fence. His lumps are just about gone. I want to try and figure out what caused it but I am scared to do that as well!!!!!!

I took him out for a pick this afternoon for about an hour. He didn't lift his head once just munched away. He has even put weight back on I noticed this afternoon. He had a really good drink yesterday and I hope he did the same today. I might try and get the automatic waterer turned off so I can monitor it for a few days.

I put him back in the paddock while I went too get his dinner. He had wandered back up the back so I called him - he cantered down with a whinny which was great to see.

We move into our house on Wednesday so I am hoping to ride him next weekend. I will try and get a chiropractor out this week to give him a once over.

His tail is healing really well - it must be starting to get a bit itchy because he really enjoys it now when I clean it in the afternoons. He likes me scrubbing the scabs away. I am guessing that is a good sign. I hope to be able to rug him properly soon as we are forcasted to get some rain this week and that will make it really cold for him.

GO LITTLE SAM!!!!!! HE IS COMING BACK TO ME!!!!!!! :o)

Glad everything is improving. You're right to have the chiropractor out after that long a trailer ride - he'll surely appreciate it. Good luck with your move!
