Verdict from the vet:
Some irregularities in the fetlock but also an issue in the suspensory ligament. Initially, treat with corrective farriery to change the angle of the foot. If not significantly improved by end of month, consider medication.
Verdict from stable staff who assisted vet (as I couldn’t be there):
He was so good! He didn’t need to be sedated and he was fine with the clippers and just so good! (l think they mean the horse, not the vet!)
Verdict from my inner child:
l told you he was broken!
Verdict from Drifter:
More human pallaver today but it didn’t interfere with food. Hay -good. Grass – lacking. Hard feed – more please!
