I should have known better. Isis is lame again today. Again, seems impossible to tell exactly which leg or area is causing the lameness. No swelling. No heat in her legs or feet. Maybe just ouchiness? It’s been almost a week since the trail ride.

I did find something interesting: she did not want to be brushed on her neck under her mane on the right side. Last week when she was not wanting to get off of the trailer, she banged the right side of her neck against the trailer corner. My trainer has pointed out that she might be sore on that spot. Sure enough, the spot was hot to the touch and Isis did not want to be touched with a brush or my hand.

Isis is getting daily rub-downs with liniment. It seems to help. I’ve been mainly paying attention to her lower legs. Today she was completely slimed.
