Is headed for an early retirement.......... She's semi retired anyhow as I only ride in the arena here at home these days, but she definitely struggles after that early December knee injury. I can see it when she sprints out to pasture. I know there is scar tissue inside interfering with her flexion of that knee, no brainer there. But it doesn't take much for her to tweak it. Doesn't really swell up, but I've been watching her for weeks and I can see the ever so slightly detectable lameness in that leg and this afternoon when coming in to eat, both Steve and I saw her tweak it and hop in a couple of steps. She was still able to move forward, but I saw the, "Oops, Ouch!". So I didn't mess about and just plopped some poultice on her tonight, no stalling, though. I don't think that does her any good, but waste muscle. We'll see, but my gut says no riding from me, maybe a few light weight rides with Steve or any kids that happen to visit, but that will be it. I really don't think her knee will tolerate it and YES she has been on glucosamine for over a month and YES she has been trimmed for knee injury........Oh, well........I said it really doesn't matter, I love her anyhow and she will always stay with me even as a lawn ornament and a good horsey kisser and cuddler. She is definitely Mama's girl..........Kola will see more riding this year, anyhow and she needs it. I love my little red and I won't ride her in pain or give her anything to mask it either so that I can.
