Ouch Dave, that must be so incredibly painful for her. I think I'd want the surgery, and just get it over with.

Stan I loved that joke, the one about Brad being in the kitchen.

Isabella was feeling very limber and pain free tonight so I attempted to accomplish one of my goals...a solo trail ride.

We did it! We did it! We did it!!!!

That's so cool when you just feel that you both have a great working relationship. I love that.

It's pretty serious surgery. Last year we did it in the summer. Otherwise, she would have missed about a month of school.

The issue is genetic. I've dislocated my kneecaps (both of them). I never needed surgery and it hasn't happened in 25 years. We're hoping this knee is like mine and it will only happen a few times (hopefully once) and that will be it.

If she has surgery, it would likely be next summer at the earliest.

Oh, Dave, I hope that her knee feels much better very soon. My DH had a full knee replacement almost 10 years ago, after many years of pain and problems. Healing vibes coming her way.

Had a great community party yesterday-but my allergies kicked up & I had to come home early-DH went back & ended up the evening towing our neighbor home after his vehicle wouldn't start.

Wow so much to catch up on. Sounds like everyone had a great 4th of July. I had a great weekend. I may have found a new horse. Purebred Morgan. Fabulous ground manners and no bolt rear bite or buck. Will post Picts when home. So excited.

Hello everyone!!!

Loved catching up on all the goings on and photos!

Corgi, congrats on the ride!! Wish we all lived closer to ride together.

NVR, that black horse is a beauty!!

Thursday found us with family celebrating the fourth. Our niece brought home some fellow basketball player friends from college, they are from Florida, so we treated them to an adventure of goats and horses. . They had never petted them before!!

Friday found us in the mountains celebrating again!! Haha. Our camp friends traditionally roast beef on a spit...we added a turkey breast. Yummy!! . We total rednecks that night. Had a blast...had great photos to share.....until my phone got smashed during yesterday's ATV ride! so unfortunately...I just HAD to upgrade my droid razr to a DNA!! Heehee. But I lost all my photos...

Today I spent all morning with my troops. Started Rainn on MSM Friday night. You can tell she is already pain free!!!! She trotted out of her stall this morning, which she hasn't done in a while, and I took her for a walk....not one limp!!! That is truly AMAZING!!

JayJay is showing great signs of healing in his feet. I can barely stick the hoof pick down into the one front sulcus...it's closing up!! The back ones are coming along...but they are deeply thrushy, so it will take more time, but I do see progress. Pedi for him on Thursday!

Well, better get off here. Being picked up soon. Bret Michaels is playing up at the lake tonight. Our friend has a boat, so are going to hang and listen to the concert!!

Talk soon!!

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.
