worried about Crazy Lu returning

She has remained sound and happy, and the latter makes me feel like this was all worth it in a strange way. I had hoped this time off would do her brain some good, and after seeing her plod along like a cow pony, I am confident I was right!
It helps to have a really great rider to get her started again. Maddy is awesome.
