Trying to be patient

Kaswyn got shots on Monday, and I expected him to have a huge swollen neck like he usually gets. I ask for Banamine to be given at the same time as his shots, but this is the first time that it's actually worked to help with the swelling. His neck looked great so I decided that I'd ride since the arena was not dry and dusty yet.

He felt really good except he was stiff to the left. I worked some trot serpentines and he had no problem giving me a nice right bend, but when I'd switch the bend to the left he'd block in his lower neck and shoulders and get lazy with the left hind.
