Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone from Maddy and Me. We are ending 2010 on a down note. Maddy pulled her hamstrings and week and half ago. She tried to do the splits in the pasture, came up REALLY lame. We used Equine Thermography to pinpoint the injury. Really fascinating to see this technology in action. The good news in all this, she just needs rest, cold therapy, and Previcox (drug they are using now instead of Bute). Hopefully we are back on our feet the beginning of 2011.

Poor Maddy. Hope she is back to normal real soon.

Happy New Year to both of year!

Poor girl. The good news as that some of the therapies used now are amazingly effective. Sounds as if you are doing all the right things.

May the New Year bring soundness and smiles.

Meantime, hope your Christmas was merry.

Geez, that really sucks. Hope she's back to being sound soon.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
