    Raz is worse this time of year but managed on dilaterol. I've found the equine America breathe easy given before exercise does help s bit.
    Hope he's feeling better soon x

    The scope on Thursday was clear again which is not indicating something wrong with his larynx or displacement of the soft palate.

    Took another tracheal wash just in case, so will get the results of that this week, and then go from there. The most likely next step will be an endoscopy while I am riding him so they can watch the larynx etc under stress (we did the scope on Thursday after exercise).

    Quick update: Leo is still on sick note. The tracheal wash came back clear again, so no signs of infection or allergy going on there. He has now been referred to a specialist so we can do a scope while he is ridden (special bridle and equipment involved), I am sure he going to hate it but unless we can see what his larynx etc is doing then we won't get an answer.

    I've just been hacking him lightly until he goes (booked in for Tuesday next week), he's been a bit lethargic the past week. Not sure if he is been feeling a bit poorly, been weighed down with his ever expanding waistband, or the warm weather is just making him tired.

    In other news I have been helping a friend restart her little coloured pony. So this is Jake, he is about 12.3/13hh and is 12 yrs old. Due to lack of jockey his size he has been being a companion for the past 5/6 years or so. I am going to get him going again so we can hopefully find him a more appropriate sized jockey to have some fun on him next year.
    I've been riding him about 3/4 weeks, only a couple of times a week though as I don't have time to get over there more often. He is a sensitive soul but actually keen to engage his brain and work, he just needs a bit of patience and calm to stop him getting himself in a tiz about life. Took him out to his first 'show' on sunday, loaded and traveled well there and back. Shouted his head off when we first arrived, as soon as we found his field companion (who was in the ring) and she came over he settled. So i tacked him up and rode him round and had a little trot in the warm up. then took him home. Didn't put a foot wrong.

    Main aims now with him is to get him working off my leg, bending, straightness, and get him cantering without scaring himself! Unfortunately I went to ride him yesterday and he had decided he no longer likes coming in to be worked so we couldn't get near him.

    Couple of pictures:
    First time I sat on him


    At the show on Sunday:

    Outcome of Leo's scope in the above post. I am still waiting for the second opinion and full report to be sent to me.
