MAMA TESS UPDATE! The Founder Warrior was here…






It was early morning and I was excited as I walked towards the barn to feed…

The Founder Warrior was coming to help with Mama Tess!

As I skipped and sang while approaching the barn, I heard MT’s familiar nicker – and I knew where she was…

Watch this video I took while getting ready to turn on the barn lights and feed.

FOUNDER WARRIOR

I hope NONE of you go through this… but if you do, let me tell you that taking care of a foundered horse can be very lonely.

You see, everyone has a different opinion on how to fix the horse – and all you want is for the horse to be fixed.

So, while everyone is trying to help by giving you different opinions and therapies –  you go a little crazy.  None of my vets agree on a protocol…

But, if you are lucky enough to have the grace of time, you can find your Warrior.

Mine came on Friday.

She even calls her business FOUNDER WARRIORS.  (Click here to read about Cynthia Nielson)

I’ll tell you more about her in future blogs…

But for now, please take heart  – by viewing MT yesterday…  I’m  holding my breath and hoping we have turned a corner.  At the very least, we have made progress.

Happy Sunday!

BRIEF SUMMARY…

In a brief summary, presently what I’m doing to help Tess…

I’ve let her opened soles dry-up in clean shavings; I do no wrap her feet.   I’ve upped her dose of Pergolide dramatically, I’ve kept her on the Omega Alpha supplements, I’ve continued to soak her hay and only feed NSF pellets to keep her on the thin side.  She also takes Thyro-L (plus a number of other ‘could help, couldn’t hurt’ vitamins.  She continues to wear the Hoof Cinches.

And of course, she rides the Theraplate 3 times a day!

None of this is easy- but if I figure it out for her, I’ll stand on a mountain and pay it forward.

The Founder Warrior and her trusty assistant made a house call - 4 hours round trip.  I was very grateful.

    Dawn, so glad Cindy came to visit you! (and Jack is such a good boy too) She is amazing and extremely knowledgeable.
    Hope MT makes progress.

    She is an amazing girl, love following her progress & she obviously is aware that the Theraplate is helping her…what a clever girl she is, but I’m wondering if she is trying to con you into feeding her more by putting herself on the Theraplate.. :)

    I wonder if she could turn it on how much time she would be on it?
    Hook it up to motion detector and timers…

    I’m surprised MT hasn’t figured out how to turn on the Theraplate by herself. If I see a video with her doing exactly that I won’t be surprised. I hope she remembers to turn it off when she’s done. Best of luck and blessings for Momma Tess’ complete recovery. Would you mind if I sent some Reiki her way?

    I Tried To Watch The Videos But It Said They Were Private. Would Love To See Them. Hugs To MT
