07/25/10 On the Lunge

I grabbed Ransom, hosed off the sweat, grabbed his lunge line, and got to the arena.

In the rope halter, lunge line, whip in hand, I sent him out. If he were still wheezy and allergy, I wanted to find out on Sunday. Should there still be a problem, a vet call was on tap for Monday morning.

He walked, trotted, cantered, for 20 minutes, with only his two normal "coughs" to get the dust out in the start of the work. Otherwise, 100% perfect. No stumbling, no coughing, and definitely no wheezing. Anytime he'd start breathing hard, I'd push him a teensie bit more, and then let him walk to catch his breath. We were back in action, and I was anxious to get back in the saddle.
