We Are Flying Solo

January 20, 2011


I think I found our problem. We have been trying a new joint support program as per Dr. Bob: a monthly IM injection and an IV shot of polyglycan every 3 months. He thought it might be more affordable and offer similar or better results than our Adequan regime. We're about a month and half in.

And I don't think it's doing a damn thing.

Solo was rushing and on his forehand. He could not step up under himself and was bearing down on the bridle. The whole left side of his body is locked tighter than it has been in a long time.

I know this horse. After almost five years, I know how he feels, I know his mind and body inside and out. And I know that I should listen to my gut, which is telling me we should go back to the Adequan.

I'll chat with Dr. Bob tomorrow and see what his thoughts are...


  1. I'm a big believer in going with the gut. Sorry it's a tough patch right now. It's hard when you try something new and aren't quite sure what's happening with the whole thing. So frustrating!

  2. I am very interested in what Dr. Bob will have to say.

  3. Just found your blog and went back to the start - fascinating!
