Hey Doc Beebe, I just thought I would up date you on our pony stifle issues. He has been on OCD now for about 3 weeks. He is no longer getting Adaquan injections and have stopped the hormone therapy for the time being. Our home farrier checked him out about the same time he started OCD, said 3 of his 4 feet were out of balance, and his front toes were way to long, but couldn’t do anything at the time because he needed more growth, so it has now been 3 weeks and he came out yesterday and put shoes all the way around, he is still a little out of balance because he still needs more growth to fix all the imbalance, but he is keeping in close communication with us as to how he is doing, and will be back out in 6 weeks to do them again.
We want to THANK-YOU so much for your advice. You are AWESOME. We are keeping him on OCD, the locking did not get worse at all from stopping the hormone therapy since being on OCD. So now we’ll see what decent, caring farriering does. Our hopes are high. And you know, after the last time the other farrier did his feet the hormones only helped for I think 1 or 2 days and he was locking again. Interesting!!!
Again WE THANK-YOU!!! And we will keep you posted. Today will be his first ride with better feet, excited to see how it goes. Jackwin
