Well, no horse show for us tomorrow. :( Barnabus evidently played too hard with the other geldings Thursday night and got kicked (we think). His right front shoulder was swollen last night, and he was very short at the trot. I checked him out again this morning. The swelling's gone down a lot, he moved OK on a lunge line, but under saddle was still a little short (the front edge of the saddle sits right on top of where the swelling is). So we're playing it safe, and have scheduled ourselves for a show on November 2nd instead. My BO is going to check him out again on Monday and if the swelling hasn't gone away completely by then, we'll discuss whether I need to call the vet out.
But, hey, this gives me another month to improve on our weak spots, right?
