His left back foot has been puffed-up, with a permanent swelling.
So after just about two years, without any training, unless we take a 4-5 weeks training last winter, when we thought he had recovered. Now we have started him very slowly, mostly on walk, slow trot. One of the reasons we have to go slowly are his movements, they are very high, and it is so easy to do too much, in a short time, if we are not careful.
But as these pictures show, we are getting him back, but still have to go slowly, and it is not in the time schedule, to show him, unless we are absolutely sure it will not harm his career. In the end that´s what most matters, when he can be shown, not if?
