|Bad mom for not noticing before tunout|
|Not super big, but big enough|
McKenna's started this fun new habit of getting twisted and sucked back in our right lead canter transitions. I almost have to crank her head around to the right because it's like asking a brick wall to turn right. She also completely ignores my leg and a couple of times I had to thump her pretty had while growling at her to get any forward movement. I finally gave up today and had my friend hand a me a whip. A few light taps behind my leg worked and suddenly she remembered she could go forward. The actual canter itself was pretty nice, so we just focused on the transitions. We are supposed to have a lesson from our chiro/dressage instructor on Sunday and this issue is #1 on my list of things to talk about.
Once we were done I cold hosed the leg and put some antibiotic cream on it. I was waffling back and forth over to wrap it because I was worried she'd get mouthy and pull or eat the wrap off overnight. I decided I'd go for it and wrapped her. She wasn't very happy about it but oh well mare. For extra insurance I sprayed the wrap with some no chew spray my BO has for the horses that like to eat the wood.
|Buddy's wraps are a touch too small, and Phoenix's were a touch too big|
I ran out this morning before work (the perks of living 8mins from the barn) to check on her. She was super good girl and the wrap was in perfect condition. I pulled it off and while there's still a little swelling the cut looked good.
