Equine Acupuncture Round 2
John in a trance enjoying his second round of acupuncture is seen in this photo.
John was so quiet during this treatment. His eyes came to half-mast.
Benefits from round 1 of the treatment? I believe I did see them. I rode a lot of trails during this unseasonably warm November and I believe his rushing downhill was less in evidence. He would put himself down behind and take small steps about 50% of the time. I was interested to notice this.
My main worry about John is that I might ride him incorrectly into an early lameness, as he is gaited and prone to hock issues anyway.
I love this horse so much. He is so trustworthy. I often dream about how if a terrible catastrophe came to this world, I would go get John first and then with his help grapple with the breakdown of civilization.
Is it strange that there is no human being I would trust more than this fat palomino??
