I received an e-mail this morning from my BO. In it she said that my horses are "jump and skitzy" saying that its only natural for them to be this way when they haven't been worked in months. She wants up to come up there and lunge/work with them.
Normally I would be up there almost every day messing and fussing with them, but for the past 9 months (really longer since I had planned on only giving them the winter off) They've just been pasture puffs.
I have not felt comfortable to go up there and work with a 1000 + lb. Animal while being pregnant. I was not about to put the life of my unborn child in danger. (And i'm sure any mother, or expectant mother can respect that decision)
Now my hubby is working extra long hours at work so he can take time off once the baby arrives, so he hasn't had the free time to mess around with them.
Im sure we could squeeze a few short work session in before the baby comes, but after that, I have NO idea the next time we'll a. Be up to working with horses b. Have the energy and c. Will want to leave our newborn child (with a grandparent)
I'm not saying we won't ever be out there again, but for a couple months, we're not going to want to, especially when it starts to snow.
I know my BO doesn't want crazy out of control horses to be handling, but does she really expect us to come out 9 days before my due date and work horses? Not to mention the baby can come at any time, so I wont be too thrilled if my water breaks as I'm lunging a horse.
But shouldn't she also have maybe somewhat expected something like this to happen? To have boarders that didn't come out to see their horses? To have, at some point in time, unruly horses?
Its like if we didn't have everything to worry about the baby coming, now we have to like drop everything and exercise the horses. I don't know it just seems, I don't even know how to explain it.
