Milo had a few visitors today. This morning our amazing farrier was here for the herd and while Milo didn't need a full trim, he did have some flares on his hind feet that needed to be taken care of. Good news is he was much more able to balance while Luis worked on his hooves.

Then this afternoon, he had a visit from an old friend. The man who had him the last 5 years (until September) made the trip down to see him. Milo absolutely remembered him and perked up! Milo was pushing himself up against the bars to get as close as he could to his old owner. We think Milo missed him. His old owner brought Milo's favorite hay and was able to give him tons of scratches and love. It brought tears to our eyes to see that connection.

Good news is that Milo is much more steady on his feet. He is definitely getting around better and has decided that having a sand corral is pretty cool. I have now seen him lay down and roll twice! And getting up doesn't seem to be an issue for him. So we are heading in the right direction. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he still has a long way to go.

Good day today!


Well, this worry wort can relax a bit. I spoke with Dr Bender this morning about Milo. Unless he gets worse, Dr B wants to give him a week or two to just eat, drink and relax. He thinks he is just weak from being starved and all the trauma of the auction and hauling. EPM is very rare in our area so he doesn't think that is it.

So the big man will have nothing but good food, clean water and rest. And Chiro and a massage. ;) I am definitely feeling relieved this morning!


Just checked in on Milo before heading to bed. He got some scratches and love as we turned in. He ate well and is drinking well...I told him we will do all we can to fix him. He's such a sweet boy! I pray that he will recover from this, whatever it is.
