not right...

G rode today, with the bareback pad not the saddle - she loves riding with that and says he goes much better

anyway, after 15 minutes of trot he became unsound on the shoulder that was kicked.  she massaged it, fine in walk,  but then not in trot.

so we're going to keep a close eye on that, of course.   Hopefully its just the remains of bruising, but there's no swelling or heat....G's Charlie broke his shoulder at 3, a small chip, and there was a lot of swelling and heat .. this not like that at all...


and in other bad news, a very good friend lost her OH yesterday, totally unexpectedly - so unexpectedly there'll have to be a post mortem... if I can, i shall go to the funeral ...

  1. Likely muscle soreness. The impact of the trot would make it hurt. Walking is probably fine and good for it at this point--so is the massage.
