Happy New Year

Hiya everyone,

First of all I would like to say a massive Happy New Year from Magic and I. Last year was filled with lots of highs and a few lows but one of my main high points this year was finally getting my own horse. I can't lie and say it hasnt been challenging because it definitely has been but it has also been extremely rewarding! Seeing those big fluffy ears first thing in a morning, and hearing that little cute noise he makes when you get to the yard make all those horrid early mornings worth it!

Magic is doing really well he currently stands at 14.1hh on his withers and 14.2/14.3hh on his bum, he weighs just under 240kg and is just 7 month old he will be 8 months old on the 19th January. He's turning into a cheeky but very clever little horse. He picks up all four feet, walks quietly along the road to go out in his field, stands to be poulticed, everything I ask of him he is really happy to do.

Speaking of feet since getting more turn out his stifle is a lot better,he doesn't seem to lock it as  much and he seems a lot less stiff. However his front foot is still causing some problems it's been being poulticed for nearly 2 weeks now but is still oozing out puss. Its less sensitive to touch and he is happier walking on it now. He's finished his antibiotics and is not taking any pain killers anymore. I'm thinking another call to the vet isgoing to be needed but only time will tell.

Until next time
Amber rose and midnight magic.

  1. Happy New Year!

    I'm glad his stifle is doing better. Exercise is key. Also a lot of horses grow out of it, so don't worry too much about it. Not all horses continue to have problems with it like Chrome does.

    For the front hoof ask your farrier or vet about treating for thrush. I don't know if you can with an open, draining wound.... I use something similar, but cheaper, than White Lightning, but I have no idea what you guys have available over there. I hope it heals up quickly!!

    Getting a baby is extremely stressful, but in the end it is so rewarding! I'm glad you're enjoying him. :D
