I am following Dr. Carter Judy's 180 day plan. Friday was day 18 which means we are ten percent of the way through the rest and rehabilitation cycle. So far, it has been a piece of a cake.
When I first heard the sentence, 180 days/6 months, I was horrified. What would I do? How would I spend my time? Little did I know that Sydney would blossom with those three extra days a week of riding. I hate that his progress has come at Speedy's expense, but thankfully, Speedy's R&R time hasn't left me feeling down and out.
Overall, the layoff is going smoothly; Speedy's getting the time off he needs, Sydney's getting a lot of under saddle time, and I don't feel as though I am missing out on my pony time.
Next report at 20%, day 36.
