Took Ambrose for a New Years Pony today and he is a little off. Hard to tell exactly where. No swelling, no tenderness. Did some light hoof testing with negative results. My neighbor is a Vet so will do some more looking and testing tomorrow.
He did get weighed and it only took a few minutes to get on the scale, his weight was 967 and I think he has put on maybe 10 pounds in the few days that I have had him. I figure that he should weigh at least 1000 pounds when fit and ready.
Ambrose is on a 30 day evaluation. If it looks like old ligament or tendon damage I will send him back. If it is in the hoof I will decide after evaluation.
I am really bummed about this, I like this horse lots..
