Saturday things started looking up. PJ’s leg looked better. It still wasn’t completely unswollen but it was almost normal. I gave him the day off.
Sunday, his leg looked even better and Maryann and I decided to take our boys out on a trail ride – just walking. We just went around the back field. It was very peaceful and we didn’t get attacked by bugs. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning with nature and good company. When we got back, Barbara suggested I wrap his leg just to be on the safe side. I gave him off Monday.
Today his leg looked completely back to normal and I had a lesson. He was super. The best he’s been. I could get him forward and pushing. I could keep a contact. We only worked for about 30 minutes and quit because he was so good. It was hot and humid and even after only that half-hour of work, PJ and I were both dripping with sweat. I’m very happy right now because if we can keep it up, we’re on our way to first level!
