So the vet came out Friday to see to Shola and we had a chat about Stuart and his behaviour etc and possible magnesium deficiency, she checked him over, checked his reactions with his eyes and his vision, checked his gelding scar and his general health, she said they dont test for a magnesium deficiency they do just say go on the supplement, but after a long chat about his behaviour etc she is pretty convinced he is a rig and has taken bloods to test. Sadly with it being christmas I wont have the results untill the first week of January and she has said if they come back negative then to put him on the magnesium and if that doesnt work we will look into what else it could be...
Just thought Id update those who wondered and said about getting the vet to magnesium test xx
He was cut quite late in relative speaking; most are cut around 1 years. Taran was cut at 12 years old and I have seen him 'service' several mares since I bought him at 13 years old... Bob the Highland I used to look after occationally for the other livery when I was at the livery yard was very riggy and would regularly mount mares and show it all about (if you know what I mean ) It could just be him, sadly. At least you are doing the right thing and getting him tested incase there is still one hidden... :O
All the best xx
