No zooms here, but she moves so nicelyWhen I got back, the arena was super dusty again and has been like that ever since. It was supposed to have been fixed last week but wasn't, now it is supposed to be fixed this week and we are still waiting. It is now below freezing so they can't even sprinkle with water anymore. Even walking makes a pretty good amount of dust so I haven't been doing much riding. *sigh* I get it, arenas are dusty but I am paying a lot of $$ to have a facility that I cannot use. Grrr. Winter blues are setting in.

App is doing much better. The farrier said she thought it may have been an abscess blow out. I don't agree because I was treating it as thrush, but it doesn't really matter. The frog was fully split and went up into his actual heel bulb causing him enough pain to crabwalk. He is no longer thrushy and is walking fairly normal. Most days he walks with just a very slight limp, other days he has a very noticable limp but he is still in great spirits.

The in-laws are coming in for two weeks this weekend so I suspect I will be at the barn more. Maybe the arena will be decent enough for me to ride in. One can hope for the Christmas miracle right?
