For the first time in approximately 3 months, Mely wanted to canter, wasn't lame, and wasn't in a terrible mood about the whole thing. She's back! Finally! Timing is terrible, since there's no shows for us for approximately 7 more months (whoops my bad!), but I feel so much better that when we get back into it, she'll be ready to go.
Today I felt good because the weather was amazing, Mickey started using his back end again (has been really sore the past couple of weeks) and took my dogs to a nearby doggy festival where they behaved themselves as the breed ambassadors that they are!
I took Excel on a trail ride in a Western saddle and he was an absolute doll. We got a nice breeze in there on the back 1000
Molly got a 2.5-inch long laceration under her eye yesterday, but my vet and I decided not to suture it because doing so would have closed the eye. Good news is, it's responding well to treatment, and the diarreah from the Bute has gone away
Everything! Happiness everywhere! I had a great riding lesson, hung out with my trainer, ate some really good soup, laughed a lot, took my dog for a ride in the car, found that big blue tarp I've always wanted...
Mona didn't get ridden much last week because I've been working OT alot.
I took her over to a friends today to ride.
Strange place, new horses, and a competitive trail course she had never been on before, my girl took it like a champ.
Sometimes she can be such a good horsey.
I didn't get to my horse today, like I usually do on Saturdays, that was the sucky part.
On the up side, my sister in law had her baby this morning. They didn't want to find out what it was this time around because they already had 2 girls and 2 boys, so that added to the excitement. It was a girl.
This was also the 3rd day in a row that I havn't had my air conditioner on. This summer has been so hot for so long, it felt good to enjoy a nice cool house filled with fresh air from all my windows being open.
