|Abscess on Cupid's coronary band|
We went on a trip over to the horse park. Cupid has been loading great - today our barn manager was there when we were loading and he even commented how good Cupid was. We did a little flatwork in the arena, mostly just walk/trot with a short canter. Then we walked a big loop around the cross country field and Cupid was super well-behaved! We didn't go in the water or do any jumps because I didn't want to infect or put extra pressure on his foot. I filled up Cupid's treat dispenser to keep him busy.
Then on the way home the freeway we got caught in some traffic. Well that's what we thought - but it turned out they closed the road for over an hour for an investigation!! So the poor horses had to sit on the trailer. I hope Cupid is not going to want to not load again after this!
I got Cupid new boots. We got some Woofs cross country boots at our trainer's recommendation. I also ordered a pair of the Back on Track quick wraps because there was a pretty good sale. I don't know how much they help but I figure they can't hurt!
