By the time this gets sorted out in a week or two, I'm hoping that whatever else is going on regarding the Thursday night lameness gets sorted out. Maybe the few days of bute will help.

The weather is changing yet again. The temperature is supposed to drop over 20 degrees Celsius overnight Tuesday, not to mention 5cm of snow. My drive out to the barn after work on Tuesday will not likely be fun. And I'll have to do all over again early on Wednesday morning, as I will need to be at the barn by 9am, leave by 10:30 for an 11:00 doctor appointment, then straight to work. Those days look to be the worst of the cold, so I can hopefully get my butt back in the saddle on Thursday. There's a clinic at the barn this weekend so I'll have to ride around that, but it should be doable.
Phantom got ridden on Sunday and she felt pretty good. Her trot felt even right from the get-go. I had put my baby spurs back on for this ride - maybe that helped convince her? We're going to up the trots to 3 minutes on our next ride, for a total of 15 minutes of trot. Sadly, I'll probably be far more out of shape than she will.
