..... And then drove off...
So that's a little frustrating.
Hopefully it self destructed as it fell off on the freeway. But I can't shake the feeling that it softly bounced off on a side street and someone is just loving all my horse photos and geeky spreadsheets.
Anyway. Phone post. Yay.
Prair's checkup yesterday was good I guess. I missed it because of a doctor appointment that ran about an hour late- but really being there is more about my own curiosity- since the vet and trainer pretty much have it covered..
Anyway. Prair got lunged (during which she was a total lunatic which I suppose was to be expected).
She's 100% sound to the right, but still a 1/5 on her LF when traveling left....
So, the prescription is 30 days of tack walking for 30 min (instead of her euro sizer walks).
The idea is that the vet wants us asking for more reach with that LF, without any impact from trotting yet...
Not quite the full green light I was hoping for, but progress is progress so I'll take it!
Today was the first day of tack walking so I pulled on my preggo breeches (so ready for this weight to be GONE) and zoomed to the barn.... Without my helmet (dammit!)
I'm pro helmet anyways, but on a mare who's been stall bound for two months??? Um, YES PLEASE. So i hunted around until I found one to borrow then got to tacking up.
Tack!! For the mare!! (And a helmet for me)
Upon entering the ring, mare's face basically hit the rafters, so I promptly turned around, gave her some don't-hurt-yourself-you-idiot juice and tried again.
Second attempt was much better and we had a lovely 30 min walk. Didn't play too much but varied between a loose free walk and marching forward walk.
So aside from the laptop and continued slow rehab, we are all good.
I got to ride Prair for the first time since March.
And I FINALLY got to sit in that damn new saddle! Whee!
Only one way to get a picture between the ears!!!
