In recent news Jasper's legs have decided to swell up. It started with both of his hinds, then moved to left hind and front, and now is left hind and both fronts. It seems to get better with exercise but doesn't completely go away. The only change has been that he's now in a paddock with grass, but the vet didn't think that would be the cause of it. At first it was like his legs were stocked up, and now they're more swollen higher up. He doesn't seem at all unsound or unhappy so it's a mystery. I did get shoes put on him because he is so footsore from all the moisture.
In Alexandre news, he is still in rehab. Being ridden at the walk now, maybe a little trotting. He still has a big knot right above his left hind pastern that looks like it's permanent. He doesn't seem to favor it. As he will be a trail horse for the rest of his life I think it's going to be OK.
Grace came out to help rehab both of them- walked Alexandre around the round pen then out and around the arena, and walked Jasper around bareback with a halter & lead rope. (It was one of Jasper's mellow days- he DOES have them every now and then).
