Stall Rest Chronicles 6 March, Milton Goes For A Run

Explanation. We have a horse on stall rest following colic surgery. This has taken over the blog. Mostly. [Begin, Phase III]

Tenth week post surgery
Two weeks at clinic DONE
Four weeks of at-home stall rest DONE
Two weeks of paddock rest DONE
Starting week 4 of four weeks of paddock rest
Still to go, four weeks pasture rest

Milton got away during a graze.

Galloped around a bit.

It was both gorgeous and horrifying.

Gorgeous because he is a pretty horse.

Horrifying because the vet said he is not supposed to trot.

Technically, there was not trotting involved.

Fortunately, right now he has the endurance of a paper doily. After perhaps two big circles, he stopped, hoping someone would catch him and give him cookies.

Zipper still zipped. Checked in with vet by phone. As long as incision okay, Milton should be good.
