I am going absolutely stir crazy! My mare has been lame for about 3 weeks with a puffy back leg and 2 splints. She is slowly getting better. There's no more heat in her back leg and the swelling is gone. The swelling is almost gone in the front and I can barely feel any heat. Another week of icing and i'll trot her to check for lameness. But oh my god. I am going absolutely crazy. In the past 3 weeks I've ridden once and that was in a flat lesson. I canceled lessons in December due to some issues with my coach so until my mare gets better I can't ride! I haven't been able to ride Ben either because I get home at 4:30 and its to dark by then to tack up and ride. And I've been incredicly busy these past few weekends.
I am going through some serious withdrawl.
