If so, read the comments to my last two posts. I am amazed and blown away by the number of people who took time to reassure me that Rogo will be fine, and to share their knowledge. I have a range of different examples and treatments to compare to, and many success stories, with different approaches depending on the individual horse and need. Wow - if I was ever glad I started a blog, now is the time (I'm always glad, but this is the best). I had no idea that I'd ever use my blog for this, but I sure see the benefit. There's a community, in the real sense of the word. I read all the blogs of the people who commented and know that they are responsible horse people with many, many years of combined experience. They rally around when needed and are generous with time and knowledge. This is what community is.
I'm new to blogging (less than a year) and feel I haven't really 'paid my dues', but our little horse family has been welcomed into the fold. Does that sound hokey? Too bad :)
THANK YOU everyone for your advice and information. You've made a huge difference.
I don't want to belabor the point, but without my blog I would have been on the internet researching, and in some cases read scary and now I'm realizing very misleading information, and in a vacuum as far as people to talk to who had experienced this. Thank you for saving me from that!I'm going to the barn later today, so it will be back to training posts and full speed ahead.
