Trippage

Isis has been steadily recovering from her fall in the spring. We both have been. My knee and ankle are doing better. She is losing weight and back in regular workouts. She still periodically trips.

The chiropractor pointed out that Isis probably trips when she steps on a pointed object, even a small stone would be enough. Most of the time when I’ve noticed Isis mis-stepping, there is a stone in a hoof-print.

Maybe her problem with tripping is just based on musculo-skeletal problems and not neurological. I mildly freaked out for a few days considering the implications of neurological problems: extensive neurological testing, possibly a spinal tap to test for equine protozoal myelitis (EPM), among other things. Let’s just say expensive and nasty and frightening implications.

I really don’t want to go there.
