More Tests and guess what?

Oh yes more tests for my lovely lady which was this time an ECG and yes it was perfectly normal! Sigh.  Honestly she is a medical mystery, I think if I hadn't of caught her on camera numerous times anyone would believe me that she collapses,

Anyway, next step we are now looking into doing the test for narcolepsy, I think now it is worth the risks involved and as she appears to be otherwise an incredibly healthy horse should be fine - well I say health there is the sore fetlocks and swollen knee from keep falling on them!

Not sure with the Bank Holiday and having to try to source the drug for the test when this will happen so we are still a few weeks away from ruling out or confirming narcolepsy as her problem.  Soooooo frustrating.

There is no greater gift than to share time with a creature of such beauty - The Horse.

Good luck with the tests. I hope they can find out what is wrong and hopefully be able to offer a treatment to help her.

Fingers crossed that they finally get to the bottom of this. Good Luck.

Hope it won't be too long now before they narrow things down and can pinpoint what it is.
