Medial patella ligament splitting - Day 3

I noticed that Fred's stifle was catching mildly at the walk in the outdoor turnout this morning. Not as bad as it has been, but I was disappointed to see it at all.
Took Fred out for a walk, but she was very on her toes and wanting to go back to her companions, Bella and Emily. She strode out very well and no sticking after a few strides. In fact, she was such a handful that I decided to lunge her on some stubble to get the tickle out of her feet and regain some manners!
She decided herself that she wanted to fast trot on the lunge and even canter a few strides, though the ground was very wet and she was sinking about 6", so it was hard work for her stifles!
We were out for about an hour in total and no sticking!
