All it's Cracked Up to Be

About every 3 months or so I take my barrel horse Pacman and any other horse who needs it to see an equine chiropractor, Dr. Lisa Baucom, to make sure everything is aligned and to check their accupressure points. The accupressure points are a great way to diagnose any soreness issues in a horse that otherwise can't be identified.

Dr. Baucom travels from Winston Salem (about 2-3 hours away) to a farm close by of some friends of ours, Valentine Farm, to spend a day working on horses.

Pacman says I recognize that pretty barn!

Pacman is 17 hands which is a really tall horse. Lisa has a block that she stands on.
Above she is checking Pacman's pelvis.

Adjusting his back and withers.

Adjusting his knee.

Pacman loves having his poll adjusted (which is right behind his ears).
It's like a big hug.

We are so lucky to have access to Dr. Baucom in our neck of the woods. A huge thank you to Leslie and Valentine Farms for organizing her visits.
