Sarge's Sheath and looking at Heart Monitors

By the next day some of the swelling had gone down and it was still warm to the touch.  Today it is still swollen and a little swollen in the front of it but not nearly as big as yesterday.  And it was very cool to the touch so no heat which is a good thing. 

When I went out yesterday, Allison was riding Shalom for Julia.  She is a funny little mare and was not a happy camper that she had to mind Allison.  Her front right hoof pounded the ground with each stride - that was to let us know she was an unhappy camper.  She was listening to Allison though so she was getting over it. 

Lee-Ann P and I discussed heart monitors and I said I'd ask some of the endurance people on the forums.  Lee-Ann suggested the Pulse monitors for me and she wanted something to hook up to her Garmin.  So I asked one of the endurance girls on a forum and she suggest V-Max.

I told Lee-Ann about the V-Max cables today and she bought them for her Garmin.   I called and tried to get this V-max monitor.  I couldn't get anyone on the phone but there is always tomorrow. 

Lee-Ann and I are going to try to ride Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of most weeks in Tyrrell Park and Thursday at the ranch to get ready for the LD ride.
