In which there's a rehab update on the Dragon and things are better
Rehab from lameness is, ideally, not very interesting.
Interesting almost always implies things going horribly wrong.
|This is boring, which is good.|
So, speaking from an "ideal world" perspective, Fiddle is doing great. In other words, it's pretty boring.
Finally, starting this week, we get to trot a little!
|Today's map: about a mile and a half, in approx 25 minutes of walking, |
and about 3 minutes of trotting under saddle, at home in the pasture.
But mostly, we walk. Walking is good physical therapy, and gives us a little quiet time away from whatever else is happening on the Farm.
"Nothing wrong with that!" sez me.
|It isn't very interesting, though.|
Today it was time to send an updated trot out video to the vet. I figured y'all would want to see the progress...it's pretty visible (finally)!
First a traditional trot out-and-back.
Next, a side view.
You do remember which corner of this horse was broken, right?
(no fair peeking into past posts unless you're truly stumped)
|We aren't done trudging yet. But the trotting makes|
Between the rest/confinement, the handwalking, the new shoes, and a huge bucket of tincture of time, there is improvement.
I'll let y'all know what the vet sez, but I am happier and happier with what I see.
