Nevel needed a "re-breather" plastic bag
to get him to breathe deep enough
for Dr. Morgan to hear his Respirs
Getting ready for some lunging
Flying around at the trot-too hot to canter
Getting ready for the Flexion Test
Naaaahhhh....101 is just too hot to run!
Basic evaluation was great. He had a temp of 101 when he got off of the trailer, but he had been riding for 3 hours, plus it was 101 in the Sun!
Heart rate was 40
Weight- About 700lbs. so he is underweight, which I knew when I bought him...I expect him to put on some weight pretty quickly since he won't have much competition for food at Lakeside.
So the verdict is: He looks great, needs to put on weight and I need to lose some weight!
Also, the "worm" exam will be in by the end of the week.
