shock tamers

Funny you should mention this.  I put shock tamers on Akela, after trying them
last year and liking them, and I started him on Corta-Flex rather than the
chondroiton-only supplement he'd been on.  Like Bubba, he's wearing his SMBs.
And I don't know if it's one of those things or the other or if it's just a case
of the hocks finally fusing or a combination of all of the above.  But he's
moving better than he has in years; I've got a youngster again!  (and he acted
like it today -- we had issues with the little purple flowers, the birds,
shadows, etc....)  See you at Sheltowee?  We're doing 30.
