Our ‘In the Spotlight’ feature this week is Dudley!
Dudley has been with Jen about 5 years as he was left to her when his owner passed away. They hack, show jump (70/75) and Hunter trials. He also enjoys a ‘fling’ in the field and his field mates wonder where the fire is… but he hates the mud and wet conditions.
Dudley has arthritic changes in his hock and front pasterns, very stiff when been stabled overnight and intermittent lameness with no obvious cause threatened retirement.
Since wearing boots every night when in, and on the lorry when travelling, he’s back in work. Jumps and hacks happily. Jumping is restricted to a good surface and no trotting on road but so good to see him performing again.
Less stiffness on a morning, happier in himself and pleased not to be retired.
