Update on Racerman

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Racer is holding steady and doing good. (furiously knocking on wood here). I have him on a purely holistic dry feed now, he has been off the witches brew for about a month and shows no signs of actute founder. He is still blowing abscesses about 4 a week- but here is a current picture of him, taken just tonight-

I mean no disrespect by calling the concoction he was getting witches brew. It literally saved his life! Mike called it that the first time I mixed it up because it bubbled a bit.

Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes to his recovery. Again, you all kept me relatively sane through this- The battle is not over, but right now it looks like we are winning the war!

Thanks All- now if I can just get him to drop some more weight on his belly and lose that darn crest in his neck, I might be able to breathe easier.

I did not know he needs to loose some weight Hissy , I thought he looks perfectly fine to me .

He looks good! Horses are very hard to take care of, and you are doing such a great job! My parents had two and didn't know how to take care of them the right way and finally had to sell them. I want to raise some one day when we buy a ranch...I hope all keeps getting better MA!

I didn't notice the crest in his neck until you mentioned it. What does that come from?

I sure am glad to see him looking so healthy! Woo Hoo!
