Back to Work!

Tony came to ultrasound Taco this week.

He also palpated and flexed the leg.  All looked good!  Taco jogged very energetically, so to speak-- there was plenty of mane-tossing and strutting.

We sent the images and exam results up to Duncan Peters, who gave the OK to start legging up.  Starting this coming week, we will walk 30-40 minutes a day and trot 5 minutes.  After that we will start increasing the trotting.  If all goes well, we can maybe canter in 8 weeks.

Doc is still being his lovely little self.

I was laid up for January myself, and I have been riding again since the end of the month.  But all three of us-- Taco, Doc, and me-- are back in action now.  We are ready for 2012!
