Bad News about Cruise

Bad News about Cruise

I was hand walking Cruiser the other day, and something spooked him. He started jumping around—threw a regular temper tantrum.

Later, when I took him in the indoor arena, I trotted him and found him lame.

The vet said he injured his suspensory ligament. Its bute and ice for a few weeks and lots of hand walking. He could be out for 2 month or maybe 6 months. I was just about to start riding him again, but I guess that is out of the question for a long time.

Sigh. At least he isn’t coughing, is gaining weight and seems completely comfortable unless he is trotting. Things could be much worse, and we have been enjoying our little walks together. They are good for me—with all the bread I have been eating…

Oh no!! Silly Cruiser. I'm sorry he got hurt. I hope it isn't as bad as it looks and that it heals quickly. Just take it slow with that kind of injury... but you know that... I love the hand walks I do with Chrome. Maybe it won't be too bad. :)
