‘I’m Blue Chip Too’ known to his friends as Glen and owned by Blue Chip’s founder, Clare Blaskey, recently at the age of 21, suffered from a life threatening bout of colic that saw him undergo major surgery and a long, careful rehabilitation program to get him back to full health.
Surgery in the older horse can be very high risk and it was a touch and go situation for Glen to be in, however, he exceeded veterinary expectations and came through the surgery remarkably well much to the amazement of everyone involved.
Since the surgery, he has been on a steady, well managed rehabilitation program that was based upon a diet of Blue Chip Pro to help him return to the fit, healthy and happy horse that he was before. His vet, Georgina Parkin from the GEM Equine Veterinary Clinic, attributes his gleaming coat and excellent condition with feeding him a diet that includes the high quality Pro and Prebiotics present in all Blue Chip Feed Balancers.
He has recently started competing again, and under Clare, the pair are back winning classes in both showing and dressage – a scenario many never thought possible earlier in the year
