He said they will continue tomorrow with the nerve blocks.

His lameness is in his left hind leg and has been apparent since October. He's been box rested with no success he's an ex racehorse he retired at the age of 8. I do apologise some info I gave I've got muddled with he's a gelding and he's 11 years old
