Plus, I didn't want to have to try to get her clean.
So I put her in the arena for a bit of a play instead.
There seemed to be no issues with her breathing on this night.
The next day she was my priority ride. I got out in the afternoon and gave her the Ventipulmin again, though I didn't wait before getting her ready for a ride. It was less than 24 hours since her dose the evening before, and I wanted to see if it would still be working.
Thankfully it was. I didn't notice any issues through the ride. I think she had a couple of coughs when we first trotted, but I generally don't worry about those.
Yet again, Phantom was feeling pretty good. We had a great lengthened canter where she felt like she was leaping up (in a good way) every stride. It was a blast!
|A 19.7 for elevation at a canter is a pretty good number for my level moving stock pony!|
So I'm not sure if the respiratory issues that we had on Sunday were an environmental thing, or as I suspect, she just didn't have enough time for the drugs to do their work. I'll do my best to allow her at least 2 hours before riding from here on out and see if I have issues again.
