Here is a quick video from today's lunge play
I couldn't stop smiling!
(sorry for the elevator version of Coldplay but trust me it was better than me kissing, clucking and goo gooing over him)
Thursday we had the Chiro out for an adjustment and acupuncture He said he is always pleased to see how Laz continues to make progress (blushing cheeks!)--uh me too!
He noticed his tipped pelvis actually changed from being tipped to the R, it was more tipped to the L, so he re-adjusted. That change could have been brought by a slip in the ice/snow or just Laz's body realigning things. No biggie. He worked on his neck (Laz can NOT touch his sides with his mouth--trust me, can not do it) so we are always doing carrot stretches, etc but he's going to focus more on that and worked on his jaw/poll area. Laz is always a puddle in his hands. It's very positive and totally worth the money.
I actually asked the Chiro if he thought he looked good enough in his back/pelvis area to possible start him back over callavetti's and possibly up to cross rails, etc. this summer.
He said "Absolutely, he is a healthy boy"
I'll talk to my trimmer next round (weather won't permit us to start too much new anyway) and gauge it with my personal thoughts of how he progresses with that.
As you know, I'll never push Laz. At the same token, I have to start riding and enjoying him in the moment, as he is and not have in the back of my mind, all the time, is he OK???
I'm just elated to have a sound looking horse who is 100% happy and having fun.
Well worth the fight.
Laz eyeing up the pasture...let's do this!
Getting better at heel first landings...not perfect, but improvement.
Time, exercise, diet, trim
I love his reach on this one...
I think he can handle an x rail....don't you??!
Nice elevation but a bit toe first..
My bold OTTB, I mean..classic f'ing beauty
Could be a trotter?! lol
Panther stretch..that adjustment did him right
What a good boy, he really enjoyed himself today.
After our session, he was all cuddles and yawns but he loved getting some play time outside of his pastures.
