My youngest daughter was standing on a barrel on Saturday and fell off and hurt her arm. We rushed her to the ER and they told us that her elbow was broken, but probably not serious and to just go see her pediatrician on Monday. Well, we went to the pediatrician and he looked at the x-rays and sent us immediately to the orthopedic doctor and they rushed her right in. We found out that she has a serious break in her elbow. The doctor was amazed that it was still in place after so long out of a cast. Luckily, the nurse at the ER had splinted it really good. So, now, she can't do anything! The doctor said that books and movies would be her best friend for quite a while . Which means...No Horse . We thought that she might be able to be lead around on the horse, but they said that she can't even ride on a 4 wheeler because of all of the bouncing. If there is any movement of the bones, she will need surgery.
So, when she went out to feed her horse, I took some pictures of her and her horse with my zoom lens.
Here she is talking to her horse. I swear he understands her! The trainer says that she is a natural and has a special way with horses.
And, here she is showing her horse her cast and he checked it out.
And, then she went to get his feed and he patiently waits for her to pour it in the bucket. He is so gentle around her. The other horse and pony are pigs and will run you over when you try to feed them. We are working on that and it is getting better, but they are still pushy.
She is so upset about not being able to ride, but at least she can still walk and groom her horse.
