are a pain to put on .... especially this morning when molly spent some time waving her near hind about! she eventually stopped
The legs are the least swollen they've bene for a while, with bandages ... TBH, i don't think it all REALLY cleared up from the autumn
they were even less swollen this afternoon when i went back
spent some of the morning looking at what EE peeps have used for mud fever, and trundling round the internet.
eventually bought some aromaheel; once it arrives, i'll slather it on and she can go out, and we'll see....gets good reviews, anyway.
the weather was horrid this morning so didn't do anything (had htought about some groundwork) but rode this afternoon. RI turned up to give YO a lesson whilst I was in - said, different horse! we're going well. I said, next lesson we need to work on 2 things - having molly accept a slightly stronger contact without arguing about it, AND my lower leg/feet. i've stopped putting the leg too far back, but still have an issue with movement (ending up with feet too far jammed into stirrup)
molly did work well though, she's definitely strengthening up. a halt/trot transition was good at one point.
also need to work on her working out sideways.....
