The mare is out in the dry lot and we play a game - I scratch and
massage her - then I leave she follows - if she wants to. Then I
stop and massage her some more. Not a lot, but our regular vet
encourages her to get out and move some. Our other vet that does her
accupunture feels she is not very lame - but we have had this mare
for 10 years and know when she is even slightly off.
You know, this is a wonderful way to give a lame horse a bit
of exercise! I think it's wonderful that you take the time with her
to give her loving attention and incorporate a bit of voluntary
movement into it.
