Finally it’s almost time for check up number two. The vet is coming on Friday to see how Grumpy has developed since we started our lunge marathon a couple of weeks ago.
Besides that he is stretching a lot easier he has also started to move with a lot more elasticity. Some moments I can see glimpses of how he probably was moving before he got his back issues. Such a different horse!
Body wise he has started to build more muscles again and his back is a lot more straight then swayed as before the shots. When you lunge on the left side everything is really good, but when moving to the right side you notice he has issues moving his right back legs in the beginning. After some rounds on that side this is gone again tough. They do say it takes some time for the infuse to work, so maybe it will get better over time and with some training.
I wonder what the answer will be on Friday. On one side I really want to ride again, but on the other I want to wait till I know he can handle it. Till then we will keep marathoning.
