Vet and schooling

Rob, the vet, came to see Dibby shortly after 9.00 and administered the second of his three injections aimed at increasing the production of sinovial fluid - and easing his joints. This gave Other Dad a chance to talk over his prospects and the best exercise to give going forward.

Dad then took me in the school in my snaffle. We worked in walk and trot today concentrating on roundness with lots of halt transitions and some lateral work. Afterwards, I was sponged down and put out to graze in my fly rug and fringe. Dibby had the rest of the day off in the field after his injection.

We came in at 4.30 after a pleasent day out with Leo. Cricket is still on box rest. Other Dad called at Gibbs for Codlivine, garlic and linseed oil for our feeds. We had a relaxing groom and a chat. Cobs enjoy some quality time before bed.
