My friend Karen MacDonald, who runs her own horse massage practice, came out a few weeks ago to show me some things I could do for Lena.
Karen uses a lot of acupressure points and Chinese methodologies, as well as some basic stretching and limbering exercises. She's been doing this for over 10 years and currently does a lot of work at the track for racehorses.
I just like working with my hands and helping Lena be more flexible and less sore, so it's been a cool thing to start learning about.
I have to say that Lena picked up on the carrot stretches very, very quickly.
