    Well,my leg finally reached the point that I'm able to use it again,so got to take Layla for a quick spin,the first time I've been able to ride her since bringing her home.She is such a fun ride! Great natural headset and movement.She definitely needs work,but didn't do too bad considering that she hasn't been ridden in 6 months,except for when I tried her out.
    Here's a few pics of her after I turned her out,still plenty spunky. :)

    Layla is gorgeous! I'm glad this thread was resurrected! I didn't even know it existed! I unfortunately am not cleared to ride quite yet after the bad accident I took in July :( Fell off, tried to catch myself (like a total idiot! I am STILL kicking myself for that!), dislocated my right elbow, tore my skin, and ruptured my artery. Thankfully I never, ever ride alone and my husband quite literally saved my life (and made it so I didn't need a blood transfusion!) Then the beginning of September I cracked my ulna where they had put pins in my bone to stabilize it after the initial accident, and had surgery to put a plate in it with eight screws. So I'm coming up on four months post accident (happened July 3rd; spent the 4th out of it :/) I've been on my horse once (not according to the doctor...) when my husband let me hop on her while he led me around to cool her out. So right now I'm basically giving him riding lessons on her (which could usually end up bad because green and green usually means black and blue, but they are doing incredibly well)

    So, yeah. I want to get back on my girly :/ Here is a picture of her. She is a three year old Half Arab paint that had never spooked prior to my accident, and hasn't since (even at her first show where there was A LOT going on)

    Oh boy. Both pretty horses. Glad your back in the saddle Countryryder. It sucks when you can't ride for a long time, but you can't beat that first time back ride. What a spill that must have been Tazzie. It always seems the worst spooks come from the unexpected ones. That's how I almost broke my neck. Hope both of you continue to feel better.

    So glad this thread has been brought back to life! I haven't too much news to share. My mare Lilly is doing well in her pregnancy; I just gave her 5 month vaccination at the beginning of this month.

    One piece of news is I got engaged this month. My boyfriend (fiance now) was pretty sweet. We were on vacation in Sonoma and we went for a trail ride through Redwood Forest, where he proposed in front of a 2000 year old Redwood tree. He wanted to incorporate horses, so that was pretty sweet of him.

    Love those two horses pictured above, very pretty. Hoping you both heal well and are back to normal riding in no time!

    It certainly wasn't fun! Sunday will mark 4 months post accident, and I'm hoping for news on Monday that maybe I can actually start riding. Physical therapy is going well, will just depend on how my ulna is doing. Been tough watching others ride my baby, but making her the "anyone can ride" sort of horse I set out to train from the beginning.

    And congrats Glynnis! That is very exciting!

    Oh Glynnis! That's so exciting, and he sounds really sweet to include horses.

    Tazzie, it's good physical therapy is going well, I hope you can start riding again soon!

    And Gypsygirl, how did your car buying go? What colour did you get? I love getting cars, I think it's really exciting.

    And Layla is so striking!
