I got the "full meal deal" tour yesterday. It is very impressive. I hope I have the owners convinced that they should be at Rolex in April. With the test event for jumping, dressage and eventing happening, it will be a great place to debut it to everyone.
We have one "in the magnet" tomorrow. So excited to have this being made available to those of us who are not in a big city.
I only wish I could be an investor in the next one, oh wait, maybe I am??
I sure hope it doen't reverse the polarity of his personality!!!!
That would be horrible!!!!
Please take my boy a strawberry milkshake when you go to pick him up!!!! It's the least you can do, after all, he was sound when you left him at the clinic, darn horse!!!
I still think he was doing the "See? It doesn't hurt anymore, I promise!!! Please don't make me go see Stuart!!! He makes me do stuff!!!"
The only difference between a runaway and a fast gallop is nothing but a SMILE
Most horses cross the Rainbow Bridge, but TEDDY JUMPED IT!!!

HaHa, sorry about the DMV miss type. There is a DVM, or two, involved for sure.
The way that I understand it, the charge will be set by the clinic where the trailer is set up. The MRI will rent for X $ per day, so the clinic will be able to do as many horses as time allows and set the fee themselves.
Our horse is being used to help with training of the techs etc. He has been a mystery lame horse for some time and I hope this gives us some answers.
History. He has an old suspensery injury from which he recovered and went back to his job as a pony horse at the track. For the past year he has been intermitently lame on the same leg. Put him on the lunge line and he is great for about 5 minutes and then he begins to limp and in a matter of two circles he is hobbling lame. Ultrasounds and rads show nothing unusual.
Yesterday before loading him for the trip to the MRI trailer I put him on the line in the indoor and could NOT get him to even think about limping! WTC both ways and not a hint of a limp. Last Friday he was practically bumping his nose on the ground each step.
He's a BLM from the Steens Mt herd. He has legs the size of fence posts, has never been shod, lives on air, and has worked nearly everyday of his life since his capture at age 3. Actually, he will eat anything. I think burritos and chicken sandwiches are topped only by strawberry milkshakes as favorite foods. He drinks his milkshakes and sodas thru a straw.
I hope to get him back to work as he is the kind of horse that will do any job asked of him to the best of his ability.
