Osteo Opinion

Borrowed from Google images - no copyright claimed!

Osteo visited the girls last night, I was curious to see what Nancy would make of the poking & prodding as I don't think she'd been seen before she left Ireland.

Kika was up first, and I am delighted to report that she was 100% straight & didn't require any work at all!
Nice one for my pocket ;-)
Osteo commented on how good she was looking and that she had muscled up well - basically to keep doing what we're doing. Happy Days!

Nancy was next and has another admirer to add to her fan club.
Thankfully there was nothing seriously out of line. The osteo did ask was she better going right-handed then left, she is, and fixed a little something in her neck.
She then explained that it is common in most young horses to have an asymmetric alignment stemming from the foetal position they had in the womb, so she worked her magic some more towards her back-end and prescribed two days off from riding.

I asked would it be ok to turn her out and she said of course that the best thing for horses after treatment is movement - so Nancy is going to have the next two days outside, sorry Keeks - just saddle time for you I'm afraid! :p

Short & sweet post today - if only they could all be as concise!

PS: I haven't forgotten about the contest i mentioned a few posts back...I have something in the works and will post about it when I have finalised the gift arrangements. :D


  1. ah I really need to get Wiz seen by an osteo- he's a little more stiff going left than right. but... it's so expensive. he might have to wait until I graduate :\ i'm glad your ponies are all fixed up!

    1. Will keep fingers crossed for Wiz' osteo visit!
      Fingers crossed i don't break them now :p

  2. Isn't it nice to hear that you are doing things right!

    1. I don't know if I'd go that far, but at least for the moment I haven't made an incurable boo-boo yet! ;-)

  3. Happy ponies :) I bet they are feeling great now.


I love to hear from readers, thank you for your comment :-)
