Exciting news on Project Dexter!

...as horse number 10 will be arriving at Rockley later this week. He is another "navicular" horse, diagnosed by local vets on the basis of nerve blocks and x-rays, and is currently in bar shoes.

Its exciting not just because of being a new arrival but also because once we have had 10 horses through Project Dexter we should be able to publish the results as a pilot study.

Obviously there is a long way to go - it will be several more months before the current horses have completed their rehabilitation, and then we also need follow-up assessments by their vets, but we are definitely making progress :-)
