Wow, its been a busy weekend! Playday went well yesterday. My marr was a crackhead outside the arena but dis well once she got in.

My friend Thea did not fair so well. She got bucked off going around the first barrel, git back on and did the pattern again with problems. Then ran the pile pattern and just as she was hrad back he decided he did not want to slow down and she come off. Didn't get up real fast frim that one. She finally had her dh take her to tge ER last night, ended up with a fractured pelvis and 5 fractured vertebrae. She is now waiting on an MRI to see if surgery is necessary. She is one tough lady and the bestest friend anyone could ask for!

It was really neat.
I went around reminding everyone I knew around here not to forget the tack sale this weekend - emailed a few friends out of town who wanted to know when/where it was and was really pumped up about going. Then I completely forgot about it and totally missed the whole thing.

Oh dear, she sounds like a tough lady to go through all that and still get back on. I'm such a baby with pain; I sure as heck wouldn't have gotten back on my horse after being injured to even a lesser extent than a fractured pelvis and vertebrae.

Well, I was out enjoying the weather with my dog Jane at Pooch Plunge for the past few hours. I was hoping to go to the barn this weekend, but I didn't. Shame.

kctop was riding a mare that was acting like one of my arabians.
I got to ride her husbands QH mare. She has a very soft mouth and is well trained.
Sorry that Thea hit the ground again after I was called away. That is a big gelding she was thrown from he is 16.2 and 1400-1500 pounds of horseflesh so she hit the ground pretty hard and she might be 5'3" tall.
Tell Thea I hope she feels better soon and if she wants I have plenty of horses she can ride that are under 15 hands. LOL
Nuisance I used to go to the Ranch Roundup every year I lived in WF.
I need to put that on my calendar for next year.
it would be a great place for another meet and greet for all of us . Just a suggestion though. Shalom

OMgoodness KC. That is rough. So sorry to hear about your friend. I hope she recovers quickly. Getting thrown sucks. I've taken that type of exit route a couple of times and there is just no good way to land when your source is a full blown buck or gallop. I have a niece named Thea. Short for Dorothea which was my German grandmother's name. I know, off subject but it's not often you see that name. Get well soon vibes heading her way. :(

Oh KC, so sorry to hear about your friend. How unfortunate ): I hope everything works out well for her.

Trimming today went really well. I took off a good six inches of flare off each foot. I'm not kidding when I say they were bad. But on his RH I accidentally quicked him and I feel horrible about it. His sole grew out extremely far and I didn't realize it until he was bleeding. I'm still beating myself up about it ): But he is walking muuuch better now. He can actually bend his rear pasterns!! He looks silly like a cat with tape on their feet, marching around picking his feet up high because he's just not used to it. I'll continue maybe next weekend, or the next with the help of my farrier. But he is already ten times more comfortable than he was before!

Thanks for all the well wishes for my friend. We'll find out more today once the do the 3rd MRI as they are still trying to determine if surgery is necessary. We are thinking about giving her an award at the end of our playday series but not quite sure of whar yet. Someone suggested a buckle with a bronc rider being thrown and have a nickname on the buckle lile crash or tuff. That may sound awful but I know she'd love it. For such a short person, maybe 5'2", she rides big horses with absolutely no fear. This is not the first time she has come off this same horse but I thinks it's the last (at least at the church).

Happy Monday y'all!

I think the buckle should say NO FEAR.
The first time she came off she jumped right up and remounted and completed the pattern.
She is very brave and determined. Shalom
