We have been getting off work at 4 this week which gives me another hour to do things before ending the day. Instead of using it to enjoy the horses, I have been burning the roads getting other things taken care of.
I finished up the last of the needed things just about 30 minutes before dark so made up my mind I am going to get in the saddle even for a few minutes. So I took out for the pasture and caught up Trusty. Brushed him down real good as he was covered in sand all over his back. Got him saddled up and was just about to mount up when my 3rd daughter and grandson come meandering across the pasture. So after making a loop around 2 of the pastures I return to collect the grandson up into the saddle with me. We make 2 passes around all 4 pastures then let Trusty back to his friends. It felt great and Trusty did really good. He didn't show any signs of his leg bothering him, but I'm still not going to rush it. He has good hair growth coming back over the area and I don't want to inhibit that progress.
Will have a picture of me and the grandson in the saddle later this morning as my daughter took the pic with her phone.
Lori, proud of you for choosing to her discipline over your work load. She will be all the better for it and hopefully keep this lesson added to the others that our actions have consequences. Have a great day hun.
CW, prayers for continued healing.
