Uwe, our visiting equine physio came to see Haakon today. He comes twice a year but not always to us – just when we need him and I have been thinking that Haakon needed him.
He gave Haakon a thorough going over.
Haakon participated too telling Uwe what hurt and what didn’t. Haakon is 29 years old so he has aches and pains and I have been seeing when he moves around.
And then Haakon had treatments to his stifles and back area. Uwe said his back was particularly tight which confirmed what I was thinking.
Bibble, who had come along for the ride, watched on.
He didn’t have any treatment. He is 100% fine and fluffy.
Then the leg wraps went on …..
…. and a back pad.
Afterwards, I loaded Haakon and Iacs into the horsevan and took them back to their field. The wind was getting up so I wanted them “home”.
Kolka came trotting up. Klaengur looked up, nodded and went back to eating.
Now, this is interesting and also lovely to see.
So I left them to it, knowing everyone was back together. I hope Haakon has a more comfortable summer thanks to Uwe.
