So far this week has been much of the same with Stampede. I did hop on him Sunday for a walk/gimp around the indoor. Yesterday I got out to the barn to find his leg had gotten quite puffy again and he was getting more gimpy as well. Probably a good sign that this stupid abscess will probably blow soon.
Mr P and I had a nice bareback ride in Monday. I felt like I hadn’t ridden bareback in forever. Ever since I got the Antares my preferences have switched around a bit, lol. P continues to feel extra forward which I could never complain about!
Yesterday a friend I used to ride with dropped off some open front boots she has for sale. I tried them on Stampede’s non-swollen leg for fit. They are super stiff so it was a bit hard to tell. The tendon groove feels like it lines up and I think once they break in it will be nice. Still holding out hope for a ride in them later this week since Stampy can be weird about boots.
Opinions welcome on the boots 🙂
Last night it did look like we could tell where the buried abscess treasure is going to come out at. Weird location but makes sense since he hasn’t wanted to put his heel down.
So I’m hoping this thing pops shortly, otherwise we already have the lameness vet coming Thursday so I could split the farm call and get it dug out and move on. We shall see.
In other news, baby J has the most amazing eyelashes I have ever seen on a dog. I hope they stick around.
Bought tickets to Rolex last night! La Mundial booth here I come!
