Serenity had her follow up appointment today. She had both front coffin joints and both stifles injected. She's suppose to get Bute and be penned up for 5 days and then the vet said to use her. He said the injections can take up to 2 weeks to reach full effect but we won't know if they helped if I don't use her. So I'll probably just start lightly riding her and progress from there. IF she is moving good and staying sound by the 28th I may take her to the playday but that will take some serious thought first. Vet wants me to run her by then so we can see how she is after but my over protective side screams no. She is moving much better on the Gamechanger and the new x-rays show a major improvement in her angles so that should help immensely with her front feet.

This huge part of me prays she can continue on barrels. The overprotective side of me says to retire her. This mare LOVES to go and run though. Time will tell our fate.

And you know her well enough to know what to do----I know, I sound like a broken record! Still sending prayers for you, her, and Ace.

Thank you! My main worry is her knack to seem like nothing is wrong. Her grit is not always an asset unfortunately.

My mare was like that. She would carry me on hours long trail rides and never say "no" or act tacky. Looking back now, I know she was hurting. So I understand. And know you will know the right thing to do!
