[RC] Stone bruise/what to do? - Laurie Durgin

Rascal actually wants the whole summer off. He thought he'd try epm first. Aw, but mom and vet want to work on rehabbing him now." I know , a stone bruise!!! I fooled mom for 2/3 weeks thinking it was a pulled muscle or something, but Charity came home and after checking me out found the stone bruise. And mom thought she was ok, pulling my shoes with the epm stuff in May.I do after all have tough feet/run on rocks alot. Course there was that rain--- for months..
Now she is asking, what to do?1) Just leave me alone in my paddock till it is farrier time (end of August)till the other two are due(farrier doesn't like to come for less than 2 horses,and it his real busy season). 2) call Farrier to put front shoes back on, if he can work me in?
Not ride till this clears up? Or use an easyboot?(Riding was to consist of only sand/dirt/rockdust arena work ,beginning at a walk for 15 min and going up slowly from there.Not anything over stressful.
Thanks Rascal(who likes his summer vacation) and his Mom Laurie who misses riding her silly little butthead.
