Last February, Ganny slipped on the ice and the fall put his back way out of whack.
Neither local veterinarians, chiropractors, body workers nor massage therapists were able to repair the damage.
By September of 2012 his back bone formed a mountain ridge above his sunken back. He had worn a huge hole in his left hock by using it as a pivot point to get up after a nap. He could not stand on his right rear hoof so we had to wait until he was lying down to trim that hoof. It was clear: we needed a miracle.
My friend, Mary, knew of a rehab center called Pegasus Training and Equine Rehabilitation Center. I called them and made plans to take Ganny there.
Although Ganny's not a million-dollar race horse, he received a greeting fitting one.
Pegasus is a top rate rehab center to be sure.
Among the strategies they use to rehabilitate injured horses is the swimming pool.
Another is the under-water tread mill, which Ganny adores!
After careful assessment the attending veterinarian, Dr. Bryant, noted that, whereas putting Ganny through expensive x-rays might provide some insights as to what and where the injury was, at this point, it would do little to inform the therapy. We agreed to see how he responded to the under water tread mill. If he got worse, then I'd go get him. If there was little or no improvement, we'd give it another few weeks. We hoped that he'd show signs of improvement.
If any of our readers are moved to do so and have the capacity to follow their hearts, we would welcome contributions to Ganny's rehab expenses. You can send a check or money order to:

The "Heroes and Zeroes Scorecard on Yes on 37" was designed to let us know exactly who is involved to defend or defeat Californian's RIGHT TO KNOW when GMOs are in our food.
Lying and deception works. After all, for decades, we were told "Nothing Tastes Good Like a Cigarette Should", "DDT is Good for Me!". We were told that Agent Orange was a dandy herbicide.
This fall, Californians will go to the ballot box to vote on one of the single most important issues of our time – whether or not we have a Right to Know what’s in our food or if corporations have control over our basic democratic rights.
Here is the score card (large enough so you can decipher it) Join me on the phone bank for by sending much-needed cold, hard cash let Californians know that they are, once again, pioneering a movement the rest of this country must follow.
