Patience and a Patient
Also, he has gone from dead lame Thursday a.m. to almost totally sound today, and he even trotted off the short distance to Blaze's fence line after getting cleaned up today (bit sore for that but nice to see spirit).
Desire's back is solid again, no remaining ouchy spots. Over the week since the ride it was less sore each day and the remaining soreness was more and more down her left side, away from the spine, so left side skirt of the saddle/cantle pack area. Definitely won't be carrying a heavy cantle pack again, so some redistribution of carry-on ride goodies will be figured out in the near future. Just have to try some of the options on hand and see what works best.
Blaze's winter coat, the earliest of the herd, is beyond ridiculous considering it's still 90 degrees out. Today is warmer than the last few days, but also the first day of fall, so maybe some cooler temps will indeed take over and justify his coat.
Sheza is bigger and redder and more interested in everything than ever. She wants to get OUT and see the world. Time for some more ponying down the trail with momma Desire.
