He's called Rowan.
This week because of his cough I've not been riding him, so we are just hanging out together. I've been mending the fence in the field and poo picking and he follows me around 'helping' me (mainly by tipping over the wheelbarrow!).
I'm hoping after the vets visit tomorrow we may have more of an idea how to deal with this cough. Once he's had the scope and trach wash I'm going to start hacking him again, just in walk as I am worried about him being too inactive. Just walking doesn't cause him to cough so I think it will be ok and it will mean we can get out and about which we both love to do.
On another note, I've used a few horse forums over the years but this is by far the most international one of all. It's wonderful how so many people from all parts of the world are here together for one thing. Our love of horses!
