appy, Vega's feet puffing up like that really sounds just like wind-puffs, which are really no big deal. Maybe just walk her out for a while after she runs like that to help reduce the fluid. My horses puff up a bit whenever I am heavily riding. No pain ever. I am sure the fact that she is stall kept does not help, but what are you going to do. :)
I hope to ride today, but it is chilly again - yuk!
It was chilly yesterday, I had a ton of errands after work, and my shoulder was painfully knotted up from something, so I did not ride. I am down to just the being chilly excuse today though, so I guess I will just push through and ride. I am really running out of training time before the stallion parade, so every day really counts for a lot. It is just hard after it got nice and warm (in the 40's), and then dropped back to 10-20 range. :(
I can't wait for my Josh Lyons videos to come in!! :)
