Latest Update on Joe's TB Horse, Sky

Well, I think we can all agree that Sky is truly on the road to recovery. She's really looking great in my opinion. Kudos to Joe and a job well done. It's nice to see him care enough to put in the effort to consult Vets and nutritionists and get it right. She looks so much better.
On a personal note, once again it is so steaming hot, I still have not gotten a ride in myself on either of my girls. I still keep my goal of at least one ride in before winter comes, but who knows when that will be. Neither the girls nor I have the energy in this heat. Misty came out of winter under weight and needing muscle built. Daily turnouts have done the trick. She's looking like she's back to her ole self and has built up her muscle, lucky I am, as I have not worked her, but walking and running the pasture daily has made all the difference. I'm beginning to wean Kola off the Levothyroxine for now, she lost all the fat pads in her shoulders, still has her tail fat pads and a little crest, but she has always had a little crest. I would still score at a "6", still much better than the "8" she was. She too has more energy and has benefited from the daily pasture turnout.
And this old gal bought a new pair of CK jeans today that are one size smaller than my usual, I'll take that and they are straight legs.........I haven't worn those since I was very young and skinny, LOL!

Congratulations on the skinny jeans, that's a great feeling isn't it!

Sky is looking a whole lot better, good for him for noticing she needed some help and getting it for her.

Glad to hear your girls are doing well. Hope you get that ride in soon. It's so hot and miserable here, I don't feel like riding either. But I do sometimes very early in the morning before it gets unbearable.

Thanks, Arlene, I was shocked about the jeans, LOL, I love 'em. Yeah, I'll some riding in at some point. And Sky is really looking much better in a few short months, amazing.

Glad to hear that the girls are good! Hopefully it will cool down a bit for you so you can get that ride in!

I just got caught up on your blog. Man, you have been busy! Sky does look a ton better. Pat Joe on the back for the job well done.

Congrats on the skinny jean!

Congratulations on the new skinny jeans!!! Yay!!! I'm down a size too and need jeans that fit but hate to buy any yet as I'd like to lose more as I still am way too heavy. Still it feels good to have my clothes baggy instead of cutting me right in half!

Sky is looking great! Good job Joe!

Still very hot here too. Just too hot to ride as far as I am concerned. Nick needs muscle tone after being on so much stall rest this winter after his hock surgery and then his spinal injections. I have a gal riding him a couple times a week that is small enough for him and my vet just gave me another name of a gal that would be really good so I need to call her. Wish I could ride him but I am just too big for him. Glad both you gals are doing good!!!
