Wizard's stitches, Weds night

On Monday, June 7, Wizard had his chiropractic appointment. The chiropractor was very pleased with his condition. His pelvis was out of alignment, which is typical for him. She reiterated that the source seems like it is on the left side, up high. This correlates perfectly with how he wears his hind shoes- outside of the right hind and inside of the left hind. She was also pleased with his shoeing angles, etc. One vertebra in his neck was out and there was a little tightness in his withers. She said the saddle seemed to fit him well (whew!) based on how his back looked and felt. The best news of all was how much she liked his neck- the muscling is developing in all the right places… no easy feat for a cribber!

So Wizard got a day off to let the adjustment settle.

On Tuesday, I got a call from Wizard’s owner. He had a cut on his head that required half a dozen stitches. It is on the right side of his forehead. He looks a little like Frankenstein. We have absolutely no idea how or where he did it. On Wednesday, I visited the patient with a box of animal crackers. He was shy at first, but then accepted his treats and we enjoyed some outdoor grazing time. I took him out again on Thursday. He’s getting a few days off so he can heal up. I put a fly mask on him during the day so the stitches don’t get too dirty. Miracle of miracles, JR has not yet removed it :^D
