So... after his stifle injection and shockwave, Dan had Wednesday off. I cancelled my lesson with Beth and we just went for a nice easy hack this morning. It was COLD. We did as many hills as we could. We mostly walked, but some trotting, and a tiny bit of cantering. He felt decent. He was kind of lazy and didn't really want to go and go fast. It wasn't that he was fighting going... just that he wasn't asking. He was happy to just mosey around. But he felt much looser in his shoulder :) So... maybe!! I also couldn't feel the hopping but I didn't have him on contact. So we shall see. I hope this does the trick. He's still not moving the sticks at the hematoma, so... yay!
