My poor horse Bert has not had alot of luck this month so I am giving him his very own blog post to cheer him up. He has a poorly liver which means he is ill throughout the summer, so much so that he was supposed to die this year, meaning we made the difficult decision to leave him behind when we moved up to Leeds - so he would be with all his friends should he go. Enter our last ditch effort Sophine Ostler. She is a horse healer who came out at the beginning of the summer. I will be honest I thought I had pissed my money away on a very lovely quack but this year he didn't get sick. His weight did drop but he didn't get any of the ulcers that usually plague him and more interestingly he stopped kicking the shit out of the farrier. Here is her link, if the vets say there is nothing more they can do, its probably worth a try.
He is also benefiting from treats such as extra apples, polos his food filled football and turnip on a rope - this takes him along time to eat but keeps his brain active. Last year when he was very ill we hung apples on a rope but 3 hours in we had to help him, it was very funny but we were worried he might knock himself out.
Get well soon Bert. xx
