Time to train again

Tanna has been out of training for about 4 weeks now. I gave him some time off after Chicken Chase and then just before Race the Trace, he came up lame. Somehow he tangled his front right pastern with something that gave him a deep wire/rope cut on the back of his pastern. He was lame for 4 - 5 days.

Tonight, I've finally deemed him fit enough to return to work. We've got our eye on heading to the GERA Fundraiser ride in Georgia in June.

Serts has been on rest since he helped me mark and unmark trail for the Race the Trace ride in early May. He did about 38 miles in 2 days, so I gave him some rest time. But it's time for him to get back to work, too. As soon as my farrier comes out tomorrow to reshoe him. :)
