Blog 4: On the road to recovery
Ten day antibiotics finished yesterday and first real signs of improvement over Thursday / Friday. Karen rode her at walk, trot and 4 circuits of steady canter Thursday and first time no coughing. Christie similar yesterday and no coughing. Little or no discharge now either, and today she was 'promoted' to lead a youngster around the village and then the track with 2 circuits of canter. Was seen by the vet also on Thursday who listened again to her lungs and said that if that was the first time, he wouldn't think anything was wrong - suggested 3 - 4 weeks for full recovery back to race readiness.
