Depending on how he is when I get there tonight, I might longe him before I get on him. I might just hop on if he seems like his usual self. He's so good under saddle, but I don't want to tempt fate! Plus, it's always good to see how he goes from the ground rather than try to evaluate from the saddle.
I am looking forward to the point when Apollo can go out into a pen. He probably could go to a pen now, but we don't have one available. Soon, I hope. Maybe someone will get shuffled around, or maybe the hay barn stall/runs will get done when TD and ATH get back. We'll see; I'd prefer to have him in a pen or run than back out in the pasture, especially when he's not fully healed, and especially especially because winter is coming. (Yes, I am a Stark.) I think I've mentioned before, but I don't feel at all safe catching my horse in the pasture when it's dark. Time change is coming up November 4th, and it'll be dark by the time I can get to the barn most nights by then.
Anyway, we'll see what the boss says and what develops, and we'll go from there. Rolling with it. :)
