Lilly’s Story also explains why her case is different due to the debilitating and neurodegenerative condition known as shivers which is often confused with stringhalt. But they are not the same thing.
Chris Swann lives in Alberta, Canada. She spent many years in corporate communications using her creative skills but nothing fills her soul like being around horses. She now concentrates on writing, art and animal therapy. Chris is a certified equine massage therapist and healing touch for animals practitioner. Chris’s love affair with horses started as a child growing up in the UK, and has never faded. She believes, if you love horses, they are ‘in your blood’ and become an addiction that’s hard to live without. Life is a continuous journey of learning and Chris believes horses — the magnificent creatures who have given us so much — deserve our love, trust, and respect in return for all they have taught us, not only about them but also about ourselves. By writing Lilly's Story Chris hopes it will help owners understand equine Cushing's, metabolic syndrome and the serious side effects of laminitis, and the complication of shivers - a progressive neurodegenerative condition.
