Well, I am caught up reading but not with telling how wonderful a day yesterday was. Morning ride with DH while waiting for the farrier. We got a lot of WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE factor in! I love that!!! Then went for a swim in the pond, a little together time, dinner, dessert, and topped it off with a walk through the vineyard. Now keep in mind that was a workout walk not a stroll, lol. But everything was great!!!
Now for today, well...................... decided to hop on Ashley bareback and go for a ride. Went up to check out the road that goes behind the pond since the gates were open and I didn't have to get off. Once through I decided to go up this really steep hill to check out where FIL moved his horses and after that I do not know what happened! Ashley was unsettled and nervous I didn't want to go back down the steep hill (that we loped up) and was going to go through the trees along the fence to get back down. Back to her being nervous, she spun around then backed us into the low hanging fir trees, ouch! Then turned to the right and started walking right into branches that well, clothes lined me!! I was like oh **** and ducked and decided to slide off the side of her. Hit the ground on my bad foot, scuffed up my shin, banged the side of my knee (it still feels weird) and wondered how I was going to get back on this 17.2 hh horse! I said, dammit Ashley as we limped down the hill over to the 50 chevy and used the tire (no bed on the old truck) to mount back up. Thank God she stood for that.
On way home I decided even tho my leg was stinging I was not going right home. So went through the vineyard, saw my farrier (he works with the drafts that belong to the vineyard) talked for a bit and on we went up the back side of the vineyard and back home.
Don't think I am hurt too bad to slow me down much but does hurt.
Anyway, that was my morning. Called DH and asked if he would so stalls for me tonight when getting home while I cook dinner. Of course, he says,
Guess I had to fall (or slide) off sometime! Gah! I have some pics to post of my last two days and will do that a bit later, or tomorrow. Need to get ready to go see fireworks tonight! FUN!
Take care all!
