Thought I would quickly update you on Kwinn and his adventures! The good news is that the famotidine appears to be working. Everyone agrees that Kwinn appears to be filling out and generally looking better. His new supplement (probiotic with antacid properties) arrived and he’s been started on that too. YEAH!!!
But, my guy does have a personality! I worked with him on Sunday and he actually got silly in the round pen. Not nasty, just playful.┬áHe’d come up and nudge me and when I would move, he would move in the same direction and trot rather happily. As soon as I put the lunge line on him, he got unhappy. So, I took it off and he behaved. I’ve since found out that he’s mostly been free lunged here and seems much more comfortable with that. But, periodically, he would come up to me and nudge. Once I held my hand out to him and he came in and nuzzled.
Noah and Josh are anxious to take pictures with Kwinn. I’m actually going to try and get their holiday photo done together this year. And, I hope to have a good photo for the OTTB success stories of Noah and Kwinn.
Take care!
