Yesterday Freedom could barely walk. By this morning, he was standing on all four legs, eagerly looking for his breakfast. Gone was the woe-begone look. What a relief!
I had some time this afternoon so I went back over to check how the abscess was draining (it still is) and he looks so perky that I thought I would take him out for a walk. At least I’d try sitting on him to see if he could walk sound with a rider.
He felt much better than I expected. He enjoyed getting out of his paddock and he marched along with his hear pricked and a spring (rather than a limp) in his step. The hardest party was keeping him at a walk. He wanted to go faster. I sure hope he feels even better tomorrow.
