Well it has been six weeks since my mare had her stifle surgery and I had the vet do her check up yesterday.
We took x-rays and she palpated her stilfes.
The x-rays look wonderful and the vet says there is a minimal amount of swelling around the stifle joints which she says will disipate over time. Not to be concerned about it.
She is very pleased with the progress at this point.
Here is a video clip from last week that I had a friend take. Candi is full of herself and we are still handwalking only at this time.
She seems content. She has managed to put a bit of weight on, and I am pleased with the progress report as well.
Anxious to move on from the 30 min of hand walking but we will follow directions and take it one day at a time.

Once the round pen is dry I will coninue on with 2-3 days a week of groound poles. We had started this, but with the funky weather I have not been able to continue. But it looks like we will have about 7-10 days of really nice weather after today....
Yay...for sunshine and good progress reports.
