Eli’s stifle scrape looks much better already. I’ve given him Sunday and Monday off, so I’ll see how he’s feeling under saddle tonight. He might get a bonus liniment bath depending on how he feels. If he’s off behind at all I’ll be consulting with his vets, but he looked spry enough in turnout.
I also got some more professional pictures from the show! Love it when the photographers have everything available for purchase the next day.
Nothing wrong with that! Although I noticed that Eli seems to have filled out in his shoulders and chest a bit. The three point looks somewhat constrictive in the pictures. I have a few more holes I can let it out to, but if he gets any beefier, I’ll have to size up to the full. I’ll be sticking with the PS of Sweden three point if that becomes the case. The black has even grown on me!
One last thing for fellow ottb owners whose horses are campaigning for jobs in the Ministry of Silly Walks every time any kind of wrap or boot is on their hinds: Sheepskin Eskadron fetlock boots. Eli doesn’t walk like a drunk rooster after I put them on. The down side is they fill up with arena dirt, but every fetlock boot I’ve tried has done the same.
Look for another Rider Adapts post later this week!
