It has been a while since we updated you on beautiful Miss Fleur mainly because there is not too much that is new to tell. We have been continuing getting her used to be handled by different people and she is responding really well to this. Catching and grooming her is no longer a problem, she is happy to have her front feet lifted for longer periods of time which makes working on them much easier. We have also started teaching her to bring her foot forward onto a hoof stand. This has been really slow going though as she has a tendency to panic when her foot is lifted forward. It is going to be great though when she happily accepts the hoof stand as then we really will be able to make great progress on her front feet. We have also been spending a lot of time around her back end, brushing her tail and down her back legs but sadly we still haven’t made any progress on her back feet. When we had Fleur assessed to see if it was physical problem that was stopping her from being able to support herself on one hind foot, it was noted that she had muscle injuries consistent of having her hind feet tied up. Whilst physically there is no reason why she shouldn’t be able to lift her hind feet, mentally there is. Fleurs back feet are in serious need of attention, the last time we where able to work on them was whilst she was heavily sedated, with the help of 4 people hanging on to her, it was not ideal and not something we would like Fleur to have to endure again. If anyone out there has had experience of this kind of challenge and successfully overcome it, we would really love to hear from you.
