15th Feb - 2nd March. 30 min walks and angry old ladies in Ford Fiesta's

So i've been pretty slack about updating the blog to say the least. I've been mega busy sorting out the wedding and not alot of time!
But Adam is doing so so well. He's still coping with the box rest (although he does shout continuously when he has run out of hay) and he's behaving implacably on the roads.
As most of you have probably noticed, its been bloody cold and pretty windy! so i've had to be careful with where i take him and when. Situations such as meeting the milk lorry on the way home, i'd really like to avoid! always fun! and angry elderly woman in green ford's trying to literally run me over whilst attempting to burn her clutch out (yes, i could smell it!)

I'm so so proud of him, his scar is looking alot better now, much less scary to look at! and Walking him down hills is where he is showing the real difference. He used to drag his hind legs, wave his head around and prance about with his ears back, I currently cant keep up with him down hills now! He is loving it! Sometimes have to slow him down because he gets too keen! When i know the roads are too busy around the yard or its dark, i walk him in the indoor or outdoor school which he has now taken to use it as a public loo. EVERY time we go in there, as soon as he hits the sand, he wee's.

I started my first week doing 5 mins in the morning and 5 mins in the evening or lunch time, then gradually added an extra 5-10 mins on by the end of the week.
We are now doing between 25-30 mins a day and will gradually build that up to 60 mins! so lots of walking!

Here are some updated photos from the past couple of weeks

 You can see now his hair is starting to grow back! yay! and he's a malting mess, hence the grey hair all over him!
