It Finally Happened

I'd be an idiot to think Roo and I would get through this rehab journey without some additional help.  By that I mean "chemical help." As you know, I'm riding him now, and he's doing really well.  We are walking masters!  We're pretty good at trotting on the long sides too until recently.   I …

More Stalking

The internet is a blessing and a curse.  I've learned so much about Roo and his history as a racehorse.  It's really quite cool.  I've learned the following. He ran 39 times with 11 wins totaling $280,764. Rajiv Maragh was his jockey at one point.  Rajiv suffered a serious accident in 2015, but has come …

Update

I was on vacation last week and trying to catch up at work this week so I've been absent.  I have a few updates. "He has the most perfect stomach I've ever seen!" - Dr. N.  I was genuinely shocked by it.  Roo had just about every symptom/behavior.  I won't recount them since I've done …

More Progress

This might be small on the grand scheme or Roo's rehab and transition into his new career, but I think it's kind of a big deal. Bugs.  He HATES them.  He's uber sensitive to them and sometimes breaks out in hives when bitten.  Normally he really can't go outside without a fly sheet on.  However, …

Ranting

I am the first person to admit that everything changes and things don't always stay the same.  However, there are some constants that remain, such as.... The earth is round The sun rises and sets each day Common sense, right?  I know there are some people "on the fringes" of society who believe the earth …

Vacation

B and I are going on vacation for our anniversary.  That means Roo gets a vacation too.  I'm pretty sure that compared to his racing life, Roo thinks he's on permeant vacation, but at least he's getting a break from me bugging him for a week. In addition to him, I've got three cats and …

Pictures

I'm terrible at taking pictures.  I'm not a fan of having pictures of myself taken and unfortunately that feeling transfer to the rest of my life.  I'm pretty sure that aside from our wedding photos, B (the husband) and I have maybe 5 pictures between us. So this post will be fully of pictures.  Most …

Finally….

Well, after weeks of trying this, that, and everything else in between I am finally going to have Roo scoped for ulcers next week.  It may or may not be ulcers, since who really ever knows until you see for yourself, but I've tried a few different things and there just isn't much improvement.  It's …
