Follow the adventures of Gentry, my dressage horse that does a bit of everything, and Pixel my son's small pony. Along the way, discover all the ups and downs of keeping horses at home on a small Montana hobby farm!
Wednesday was supposed to be Operation Freedom. However, Gentry's wound is taking its sweet time to heal up at the top of the flap (the upside down U shape). The stitches just didn't seem to do much up there, although the rest healed up great. This means he is still in a bandage, which means slower healing, but healing none-the-less. It also means one more week of stall rest. At this point, I am told that the stall rest doesn't really have much to do with with the tendon anymore, and is really all about the cut healing. That kinda blows my mind. That means, on good days, I can start hand walking him, 5 minutes at a time, working up to 15/20 minutes.
For now Operation Freedom will be delayed until next week.
