The Country Diary of a GenX Woman


20130719 021Three months after his latest injury, 17 y.o. Flash has been assigned some light physio to get his muscles working again.  For the past 6 weeks, he has been walking over poles to encourage him to lift his injured back leg and build the muscles back up.   The vet came 3 days ago and said his condition had improved enough to start trotting him for 5 minutes or so. She advised we start in a straight line or  in a clockwise direction at first to reduce strain on his unstable stifle.  22 y.o. Auspicious obviously thought it was his job and got him running back and forward along the boundary of the arena. Ideally Flash should have been in the arena on the grass rather than working in the deep soft sand, and I am not sure the rearing was part of the plan.  I love the first image, where they are nose to nose across the fence.
