We took him onto the hard surface where he showed lameness on both front feet on both reins...
I phoned the vet practice to speak to the vet who did the 5 stage vetting prior the purchase but couldn't get hold of him and he still hasn't called me back.
Different vet is coming to have a look tomorrow. No idea what to think about it really. He looks uncomfortable through the shoulders/front feet but I haven't done any hard work on hard surface to justify concussion of any sort. He was worked 30 minutes 3 times on the lunge since I got him plus did some canter work and 20 minutes schooling session on a very good rubber track surface. Again nothing to really explain the problem. As far as I know he didn't have any mad galloping experiences while in the field and was off staying in yesterday due to a show at the yard and no turn out.
I am going to reserve the speculations until the vet gives his opinion tomorrow.
Horses really are a truly up and DOWN experience. And if you ever forget that they make sure you remember that asap.
To top it up I spoke to my brother today and Poker passed away. He had a heart attack at night.
Got a massive headache now and wish life was a bit smoother more often. Amazingly I managed to convince Rick to come with me to the stables today - of all days!
