In November 2015 a visited Angie in Yorkshire, I told her all about Ty and Truce’s injuries and showed her the pictures. I explained to her that Ty was healing well but still had signs of swelling in his hind quarters and was still a little sore in his movement. Angie gave me two sample tubs of Goldform to try, we could not believe the difference in him. He seemed to become more like his old mischievous self again, the swelling was going down each week, his movement was coming back to form and he was standing up for himself in the field over the fence again. I truly could not believe what I was seeing, we had the old Ty back.
His injury continues to heal well.
I feel that Goldform assisted in the swelling decreasing and aided his mobility and strength. Ty became fitter and fitter and in January 2016 he came back into light work and so on until he was completing small jumps. Even to the stage of not letting us clip him and throwing a fuss, not this was the old Ty we know and loved.
However, in January 2016 I was running low on Goldform and contacted Angie to ask where she had got it from and how could I obtain more. Angie put me in contact with you Stu as you know. I told you all about the horses and you sent me some more Goldform.
Truce’s owner had seen the difference in Ty and I told her what I had been giving him. Truce was still very stiff in his movement; he was not working through properly from his hind quarters. He would regular suffer from swollen legs when he was stabled, so I agreed to ask you Stu for some extra for her to try.
Since giving Truce Goldform he has not had swollen legs and he has become more flexible and loose in his movement, his owner is very impressed with the results so far.
As for Ty we never thought he would ever be the same as before, however he seems to have had a new lease of life. He is now in full time work at Myerscough College in Garstang with my son, where he is completing flat work and jumping. The tutors cannot believe how well he is working in such a short period of time and his willingness to work, which at times he was lacking before his injury.
I truly believe without Goldform Ty would not be doing what he is doing now and so quick after his injury. Ty has fully flowing movement with easy in canter, gallop and jumping, as you can see from the above photo’s there is now no swelling and he is happy to work or try whatever you ask of him. Everyone who knows my son, our family and our horses cannot believe how well Ty is and how he is working. Even Kirsten the yard manager at Myerscough College has commented on how well Ty is going.
Today the 1st of March 2016 our vet (Kathleen from Gillivers Vets 01257 483161) came to see one of my other horses and asked how Ty was, I told her and she too thought it was fantastic how well he was doing in such a short period of time for the injuries he sustained. I explained to her what I had been using and how impressed I was with it, Kathleen has asked me to get some up to date photos of Ty and the location of his injured to use as a case study.
